Most utility applications can be met with standard braided style constructions.
Our braided styles provide a round product ideal for use in pulleys, as draw cords and in fastening applications as they knot and wear very well. Industrial grade polyester fibers in a braided style offer the best overall utility, selection and value.
Twisted style products are often used when strength is needed but roundness and easy knotting are not all that important. Twisted cotton, nylon and polypro are quite popular. Sometimes, twisted styles are used for splicing something to an end such as an anchor.
Hollow braid style products provide low cost and light weight options for fastening or crafts. This construction style is a ‘sleeve” of a product, a braided jacket but no core so it’s flat. Hollow braid is fairly strong and almost always a monofilament polypro (which will float in water), but is not that great for longterm outdoor uses with high UV exposure due to the mono filament fiber.
