Unitrex XS Max Wear, Uniline’s high-tech cousin, is a parallel-core rope of Honeywell Spectra®, wrapped with a neoprene tape and over-braided with a tough jacket of high-tenacity polyester. The result is a synthetic cable, somewhat stiffer than your usual rope, which is much like wire in its stretch characteristics. Unlike wire, it is much lighter and easily handled. Due to its toughness, we are comfortable assigning it a higher working load rating, which is 25% of its breaking strength.
Unitrex XS Max Wear has high strength retention in service, which is supported by field studies and our long-standing track record with Uniline polyester. Unitrex’s tough rubber layer protects its high-modulus Spectra core, and the outer jacket is saturated with urethane, making it the toughest Spectra rope you can buy. All of Yale’s parallel-core ropes are torque free, with bonded cores preventing contamination of the internal strength member. Unitrex XS can be quickly terminated and/or joined with a TechEye2 or TechJoin2.
