PTS-3 NYLON

Product Code:188

Fiber:Nylon

Specific Gravity:1.14

Splice:3-Strand Class I


PTS-3 Nylon is a premium, 3-strand rope that is heat set by our exclusive thermo-set process. This process coats the rope with our Samthane coating and sets the fibers, bonding them to create working firmness and extend wear life. The result is less than 1% shrinkage, excellent energy absorption, improved splicing, and a long wear life.
