Kevlar ropes (braided)
Kevlar rope and line
In this category you may order Kevlar ropes with polyester-covering made of non-flammable high-quality Kevlar® aramid yarns.
Ropes made of Kevlar are heat-resistant, offer breaking strength and extremely low working stretch values. Kevlar fibres do not melt at high temperatures but begin to char from about 932°F (500°C).
Polyester-coating makes Kevlar ropes abrasion-resistant, very grippy, weatherproof, can excellently be tensioned, run over the pulleys, do not slip in the rope stoppers and clamps, are dimensions stable and robust.
Thanks to the non-slip polyester covering, kevlar ropes do not slip through the rope stoppers or clamps and can securely be fastened.
- Working stretch: <1,5%, Breaking stretch: 2-4%
- Water absorption: <2-5%, Strength loss due to humidity: 0%
- Knot tenacity: 40-50%
- Light resistance: very good
- Abrasion resistance: very good
- Acids till 25°C (residual coating): 80% of breaking load
- Acids till 25°C (residual Kevlar-core): good resistance
- Acids till 100°C (residual): 0% of breaking load
- Acids till 100°C (residual Kevlar-core): good resistance
- Alkalis till 20°C: good resistance
- Alkalis till 100°C: coating dissolves
- Solvents (covering): phenol, kresol, zinc-chloride; Kevlar core: low influence

- Melting temperature: covering 260°C; Kevlar-core: non-flammable, chars by 500°C
- Petrol, diesel, lubricating oil: no influence
Areas of application
Polyester-covered kevlar ropes have bright range of areas of application. Especially as a wire rope replacement or in areas with demands on high breaking load. These ropes are known for its light and "creeping" resistance (time- and temperature-dependent, plastic deformation under constant load).
