Manufacturer part #: Nylon Double Braid 1/2"

Double Braid Nylon is manufactured using high tenacity nylon fiber treated with a lubricating proprietary finish that significantly improves abrasion resistance and increases wet strength. Our most elastic double braid construction, Double Braid Nylon has excellent energy absorption properties and minimal strength loss due to UV. A certificate of conformance to military specification Mil-R-24050 B&C is available upon request.

  • Excellent Energy Absorption
  • Good Abrasion Resistance
  • Easily Spliced
  • Several Colors

  • Applications
  • Dock Lines
  • Anchor Lines
  • Mooring Lines

  • Sunlight/Uv: Nylon has very little degradation from UV, and can be used over long term if inspected regularly.

    Nylon will degrade with strong oxidizing agents, mineral acids, and 90% formic acid. Nylon may discolor when exposed to high levels of carbon dioxide.

    Nylon has a melting point of 460å¡F with progressive strength loss above temperatures of 300å¡F.

    Good resistance to the passage of electrical current. However, dirt, surface contaminants, water entrapment, and the like can significantly affect dielectric properties. Extreme caution should be exercised any time a rope is in the proximity of live circuits.

    Sheaves: Recommended D/d * ratio is 8:1. (*Sheave diameter to rope diameter)

    Working Loads:
    No blanket safe working load (SWL) recommendations can be made for any line because SWL's must be calculated based on application, conditions of use, and potential danger to personnel among other considerations. It is recommended that the end user establish working loads and safety factors based on best practices established by the end user's industry; by professional judgment and personal experience; and after thorough assessment of all risks.

    The SWL is a guideline for the use of a rope in good condition for non-critical applications and should be reduced where life, limb, or valuable property is involved, or in cases of exceptional service such as shock loading, sustained loading, severe vibration, etc.

    The Cordage Institute specifies that the SWL of a rope shall be determined by dividing the Minimum Tensile Strength of the rope by a safety factor. The safety factor ranges from 5 to 12 for non-critical uses and is typically set at 15 for life lines.

      New England braid is a very high quality line. It is very supple which makes it very easy to splice unlike other brands of double braid rope.

      This is my first purchase experience with Vela Sailing Supply and I cannot say enough about their customer service. They are top notch and then some! It was a very pleasant experience. They go over and above to insure that you are completely satisfied.
