Our Fine Braids series is made from high tenacity Polyester or Nylon. Polyester is more favoured because we have some 30 different colours that can be incorporated, whereas Nylon is available only in white.
Cords start with a 1.5mm diameter and go to around 5mm. Refer table below. The diameter is nominal.
These are braids we have created for specific purposes. Please enquire if you have a requirement for a braid not listed and we will design and make it for you. Please call for the colour range.
|Code||Size/Diameter||Indicative Break Load|
We use a coding which indicates the material used, braid weave and weight per unit metre. All braids listed above are made from Polyester (P).
P = Polyester N = Nylon
F = 16 Braid H = 8 braid
S = Standard Core (non-braided) (PHS) F = Braided Core (PFF)
Number = approximate grams/metre
To illustrate, PFS-120 indicates the cord is made from Polyester (P) – is a Full 16 Braid (F) – with a Standard Non-Braided Core (S) – while the number indicates the weight of the cord per metre.
