Aramid Rope, Aramid Cord (braided)

In this category you may order braided aramid ropes and cords made of high-quality non-flammable yarns. Ropes made of aramid offer high heat resistance, very high breaking load and extreme low stretching properties. Aramid fibres do not melt at high temperatures, but begin to char from about 500°C. Aramid ropes are also highly appreciated for its high cut resistance properties, good dimensionally stability, resistance to "creep" (time and temperature dependent plastic deformation under constant load), corrosion resistance, high chemical and seawater resistance.

  • Material: Aramid

  • Yarn strength: 20-25cN/dtex
  • Specific weight: 1,44kg/dm³
  • Strength loss due to humidity: 0%
  • Water absorption: 2-5%
  • Knot tenacity: 30-40%
  • Light resistance: poor (Ropes made of aramid aren't suitable for continuous outdoor without protective covering due to poor light resistance, which causes significant loss of rope strength)
  • Breaking stretch: 2-4%
  • Abrasion resistance: adequate
  • Washing temperature: 80-90°C
  • Acids (50% concentr.): good resistance
  • Gasoline, diesel, oil: no reaction
  • Solvents: minimal reaction
  • Alkali (Leaches): good resistance
  • Insulating properties: excellent
  • Highest temperature (short load): approx. 400°C
  • Range exposure: -
  • Melting point: no melting and dripping, charred at approx. 500° C

Thanks to its properties braided aramid ropes have a very wide range of application areas. Especially as perfect wire rope replacement or in the areas with very high environmental temperatures. These ropes are also often used in: Mechanical engineering, control ropes, tensioning cables, anchorage, special industrial applications, offshore constructions, flight sports, paragliders, fire department, stage construction, theatrical rigging line, modelling, reinforcement material for cables, cut protection, endless string, pyrotechnics, fire artist, fire jumping rope, fire poi, reinforcement for optical fiber cables or rubber materials, sports equipment, racing, heat protection.
