- Bulk Srength is defined as strength per circumference squared.
- Working is defined as rope actually in use under a cycling load.
- Coefficient of Friction is based on reluctance to slip or slide.
- Critical Temperature is defined as the point at which degradation is caused by temperature alone.
- Cold Flow (Creep) is defined as fiber deformation (elongation) due to molecular slippage under a constant static loading situation. Fibers that have this inherent characteristic will display extremely low or negligible creep if minor fluctuations occur in the rate and/or frequency of load levels. In rope form, this would apply to polypropylene and HMWPE fibers such as Spectra and Dyneema.
All sizes stated are nominal diameters and do not reflect exact dimensions. Weights depicted are average net rope weights relaxed and standard tolerances are +5% unless agreed to in writing.
