Multiline II Composite Static Rope | Bull Rope
$93.00 – $1,985.00
Multiline II stands for exceptional durability and strength in conjunction with extremely low weight, unlike other commercially available twisted static ropes.
Material: polyolefin, polyester
Multiline II is a twisted rope composed of three strands with filament cover around a polyolefin core. The cover of the strands lends to this static rope a fuzzy feel and makes it easier to grip, even when wet. The core makes the rope firm and round without adding weight. This gives Multiline II good abrasion resistance and handling characteristics.
Multiline II comes in nine different diameters and is easily identified by its distinctive orange markers. Available on 600ft spools.
This static rope features the following advantages:
- the filaments in the strand cover improve grip and knot holding properties, even when wet
- a polyolefin core keeps the strands firm and round, improving knot holding ability and hand
- available in sizes from 8 mm to over 28 mm
- easy to splice
- consistently supple feel throughout the service life of the rope
- ideal for rigging
- Sunlight/UV: Very little degradation from sunlight. Can be used outside over long term if inspected regularly.
- Chemicals: Polyester has good resistance to most chemicals, except 95% sulfuric acid and strong alkalines at boil. Polypropylene has excellent resistance to most acids and alkalines, except chlorosulphonic, concentrated sulfuric acids, and chlorinated hydrocarbons at 160°F. Additionally polypropylene withstands most diluted bleaching solutions.
- Heat: Polyester melts at 480°F with progressive strength loss above 300°F. Polypropylene melts at 330°F with progressive strength loss above 200°F.
- Dielectrics: Good resistance to the passage of electrical current. However, dirt, surface contaminants, water entrapment, and the like can significantly affect dielectric
- properties. Extreme caution should be exercised any time a rope is in the proximity of live circuits.
- Sheaves: N/A
- Working loads: No blanket safe working load (SWL) recommendations can be made for any line because SWL’s must be calculated based on application, conditions of use, and potential danger to personnel among other considerations. It is recommended that the end user establish working loads and safety factors based on best practices established by the end user’s industry; by professional judgment and personal experience; and after thorough assessment of all risks. The SWL is a guideline for the use of a rope in good condition for non-critical applications and should be reduced where life, limb, or valuable property is involved, or in cases of exceptional service such as shock loading, sustained loading, severe vibration, etc. The Cordage Institute specifies that the SWL of a rope shall be determined by dividing the Minimum Tensile Strength of the rope by a safety factor. The safety factor ranges from 5 to 12 for non-critical uses and is typically set at 15 for life lines.
