Endura Braid Euro Style was developed in conjunction with leading riggers
worldwide and tested in the harshest of conditions, Endura Braid Euro Style
surpassed the standards of performance time and again. Endura Braid is New
England's most popular Dyneema double braid rope. Use for all running rigging
requiring a durable, low stretch, lightweight line.
• Reef Lines.
• Low-stretch control lines.

Very little degradation from sunlight. Can be used outside over
long term if inspected regularly.
Polyester has good resistance to most chemicals except 95% sulfuric acid
and strong alkalines at boil. HMPE has good resistance to most minerals,
organics, acids, and weak alkalines. HMPE also has excellent resistance
to bleaches and other oxidizing agents and to most solvents.
Heat: Polyester melts at 480°F with progressive strength
loss above 300°F. HMPE melts at 300°F with progressive strength
loss above 150°F. Technora melts at 1200' F.
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.
sheave diameter to rope diameter is 8:1.
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.
