Sarlex is a single-braid 12-strand rope constructed of specially lubricated 1W81 high-tenacity polyester. Sarlex’s two-end-per-carrier structure creates a larger void in the middle of the rope, which makes it easier to splice and makes used-rope splicing much easier to perform. Sarlex is always coated with Yale’s Maxijacket urethane coating, which reduces the new rope’s tendency to snag, greatly enhances abrasion resistance, and is a great way to color code ropes for application or load rating.
