Color Coded Rope

Colored Rope Flecks for Easy Identification

Novabraid ropes are available with a very wide range of color codes to identify a brand, a construction, a specific use on board etc. Color codes are usually described as “flecks” if one strand or pic in the braid pattern is colored. If more than one strand is a different color then the term “tracer” might be used. Different cover constructions with 12, 16, 20, 24 32, or 48 standard carrier or bobbin configurations can yield many different patterns or color codes. These color code patterns are created on maypole style braiding machines by loading individual braider bobbins or plies with different color yarns. One half of these bobbins will be traveling clockwise around the braid pattern and rest counter clockwise, usually orienting twisted strands in an S and Z alignment. Longitudinal alignment of the strands yields a more abrasion resistant and stronger rope construction.
