*Melting point will vary depending on application. Best practices recommendation is to not subject this or any polyester rope to temperatures higher than 200°F/93°C
UL Classified to NFPA 1983:2006
No blanket working load limit (WLL) recommendations can be made for any line because the WLL 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 WWL 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 WLL of a rope shall be determined by dividing the Minimum Tensile Strength of the rope by a design factor. Sapsis Rigging uses the design factor of 7 to calculate the WLL of this rope.
