High Strength Rope



Novabraid ropes featuring high strength yarns including Spectra, Dyneema, and Kevlar allow for rope constructions with tensile strengths similar to wire rope and cable at significantly lower weights. This can translate into smaller winch drum requirements, less horsepower, lower fuel consumption, and safer operator and handling conditions.




Products for this performance:


Novablue - NOVABLUE™ is our premium double braided polyester rope designed for general marine, industrial, and commercial use where low elongation, high strength, and abrasion resistance are required. US Mil - R - 24677 CDN Mil - 40-GP-16M

Novagold - NOVAGOLD™ is our premium double braided nylon rope designed for general marine, industrial, and commercial use where controlled elongation, high strength, and abrasion resistance are required. US Mil - R - 24050D CDN Mil - 40-GP-16M

50/50 Nylon - Novabraid DOCKLINES are professionally spliced with a soft eye and lock stitch on one end and heat seal on the other end. They are available in a variety of solid colors as well as our standard Novagold.

Novalite - NOVA LITE is a double braided construction of multifilament polypropylene in both core and cover. Novatec’s unique process provides for a stronger, lighter line that is easy to handle with no water absorption.

Nytec 12 - NYTEC-12 is a hollow braided 12-strand rope using 100% nylon yarn. It is designed with single ply construction up to 1” nominal size and two ply in larger diameters.

Oletec 12 - OLETEC-12™ is a hollow braided 12 strand rope using 100% polyolefin high tenacity co-polymer fiber. It is designed with single or two ply construction depending upon nominal size. The rope also has excellent fall protection lifeline capabilities as it exceeds strength requirements of the ANSI Z 359-07 fall protection standard. Fall protection rope grabs work very effectively with the construction and design of the rope to ensure good activation and response to falls when properly connected. The rope also is relatively light and is very flexible which is beneficial for use aloft and when securing.

Polylon - POLYLON is a double braided rope constructed with a 100% polyester cover and a 100% nylon core. This rope was specifically designed for electric utilities but has a number of industrial and marine applications.

Polyspec - POLYSPEC is a double braided rope constructed with a 100% polyester cover and a 100% urethane coated Spectra® core. It is designed for general marine, industrial, and commercial applications. . .

Polytec 12 - POLYTEC-12 is a hollow braided 12-strand rope using 100% polyester yarn. It is designed with a single or two ply construction depending upon nominal size.

Spectec 12 - SPECTEC-12™ is a hollow braided 12-strand rope using 100% Spectra® fiber. It is designed with single ply construction up to 11/2" nominal size and two ply in larger diameters.

XLE - Z Feel - XLE-Z FEEL PERFORMER SERIES is an extra low elongation, 100% Polyester double braid like our standard XLE but with a cover constructed from DuPont’s Type 77 Dacron, long staple, spun filament, yarn.

Blendtec 12 - BLENDTEC-12 is a hollow braided 12 strand polyester/polyolefin dual fiber rope. It is designed with single or two ply construction depending upon nominal size.

XLE Performer - XLE-PERFORMER SERIES is our top of the line extra low elongation, 100% polyester double braid. XLE is made from the highest quality polyester yarns with marine finish on both core and cover.

Pendants - Novabraid Pendants (or pennants) are hand fabricated from Novablue polyester, Novagold nylon or floating Oletec-12 strand polyolefin per customer specification. Programs can be developed for mooring service companies to address local conditions, ordinances and product identification.

Norpac Gillnet Cork HT -

Star Line - Starline double braid uses the same high quality yarns as Novablue but with a tighter 32 carrier cover to minimize snagging and dirt retention. It is supple yet firm in hand and is easily spliced in sizes 1/2" diameter and greater. Exceeds NFPA 1983-6 tensile and elongation requirements

Weighted Fast Ropes - Novatec's proprietary fast rope is designed to minimize rope motion in high wind and downwash insertion or rescue operations. Options include Spectra personnel or gear attachment loops.

Static Kernmantle - Novabraid polyester static climbing lines feature a braided core and 48 carrier cover. Custom color patterns are available on request.
