Maxibraid is a single braid rope constructed of UHMPE fiber. This fiber has the highest strength to weight ratio of any synthetic or natural fiber, and floats. The integral Maxijacket coating firms the construction, increases wear life, and helps keep contaminants out of the rope. Maxibraid also has extremely low stretch.

The maximum allowable leakage for new dry Maxibraid is 0.5 milliamperes at 60K DC Volts when tested in accordance with Yale Cordage Test Method DTP-185. Caution: Absorbed and entrained moisture or impurities will dramatically increase a rope's conductivity.
Maxibraid is made in accordance with Yale specification #YCI-MB-006
