Compliance to the above specifica-tions is based upon testing according to the Cordage Institute Standard Testing Methods for Fiber Rope and/or ASTM 114268 Standard Methods of Testing Fiber Ropes. Weights:Are aver-age and may vary +-5%. Tensile stiengths: Are appmvi unite average for mu; unused rapes. To estimate the mhihmilii 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 tensile strength of the rope).

Very little degradation from UV Can be used outside over long term if inspected regularly.

Good resistance to chemicals except 95% sulfuric acid and strong alkalines at boil.

Melting point of 480°F progressive strength loss above 300°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.

Recommended ll/d ratio is 8:1.

Working Loads:
No blanket working load recommendation 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 iisks.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 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. SWL=Minimum Break Strength / Safety Factor
