Compliance to the above specifica-tions is based upon testing according to the Cordage Institute Standard Testing Methods for Fiber Rope and/or 41STA1 D-4268 Standard llethods of Testing Fiber Ropes. Weights: Are average and may vary +-5%. Tensile strengths: Are approximate average for neu unused ropes. To estimate the minimum tensile strength of a new rope, reduce the approximate average by 15% (Cordage Institute defines minimum tensile strength as two standard deviations below the average !ensile strength of the rope).

SUNLIGHT/UV:
Very little degradation from IN Can be used outside over long term if inspected regularly

CHEMICALS:
Good resistance to most solvents, however Nylon will degrade with strong oxidizing agents, mineral acids and 90% formic acid. May temporarily discolor when exposed to high levels of Carbon dioxide.

HEAT:
Melting point of 460°F, progressive strength loss above 300°F

DIELECTRICS:
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 Did ratio is 8:1

WORKING LOADS:
No blanket working load recom-mendation can be made because it depends on the application and conditions of use, especially potential danger to personnel. It is recommended that the user establish working loads and safety factors based on professional and experienced assessments of risks. The working load 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 for exceptional service such as shock, sustained loading, severe vibration, etc. The Cordage Institute specifies that the Safe Working Load of a rope shall be determined by dividing the Minimum Tensile Strength by the Safety Factor. Safety factors range from 5 to 12 for non-critical uses, 15 for lifelines.
