Ideal for Demanding Industrial Applications

Novabraid’s Polyspec is a double braided rope constructed with a 100% polyester cover and a 100% Spectra core. It is designed for general marine, industrial, and commercial applications where extra low elongation and extremely high strength to weight ratios are required. This product often replaces wire of TDe same diameter. A single black tracer in TDe cover identifies Polyspec for use in industrial applications. Polyspec is also available for high performance sailing applications in red blue and green color codes with a gold fleck.
