The coating will protect and bind the braided rope to reduce chafing while increasing wear resistance and fibre binding. Typically used on

As manufacturers we can modify the Rope Code manufacturing formulation to suit individual requirements.

Require more stiffness in the rope for added chaff and wear resistance ?
Require less colour strength (or create special colours to your specification) ?
Require a thicker version for easier hand application (but less braid penetration) ?

We can supply (pricing will vary from those shown above) to your specific requirements.
