Kevlar Rope, Kevlar Cord (braided)

In this category you may order braided ropes, cords and lines made of high-quality aramid yarns. Ropes made of Kevlar are heat-resistant, have high breaking load and extremely low working properties. Kevlar fibres do not melt at high temperatures, but begin to char by 500°C. Moreover, these ropes are being appreciated for its very good cut protecting properties, good dimensional stability, “no-creep” (time and temperature deformation under a constant load), resistance to: chemicals, seawater and corrosion by heat. Polyester-covered Kevlar ropes are very grippy, abrasion and weathering resistant. Thanks to the polyester-covering Kevlar ropes do not slip in the rope stoppers and brackets, so they can be securely fixed. Kevlar ropes can also be tensioned and do not lose its strength over time.

Polyester-covered Kevlar® ropes have a 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). Anchoring cord, pole rope, flag rope, control rope, traction rope, rope for sport equipment, scene construction, stage construction, theatre train lines, exhibition construction, modelling, reinforcing material for cables, as cut protection, cable pull-through aid, anchorages, industry, construction and transportation, mechanical engineering, professional sailing, on sailing yachts, in tree care, banners and tarpaulins fastening, sling rope, suspension rope, fastening rope.

Your desired product is not listed in our online shop? We can offer you a customised solution. In this case, we have the required rope manufactured specifically according to your requirements. The prerequisite is the purchase of at least one machine set per desired variant of the product. The delivery time for these customised orders is usually approximately two to three weeks.

We happily take care of your need for manual assembly as well. We can cut the rope to the lengths you require and provide additional ropework. Decorative knots, individual splices and whippings, special packaging and labelling can also be ordered from us. These services can be provided even in large quantities.

Please feel free to send us your enquiry now! We take the time to listen to you and answer your questions. We see each individual request of our customers as a challenge which we seek to meet. Through established partnerships with selected rope manufacturers, our many years of experience, efficiency, and flexibility, we are able to deliver on that promise.
