Yalex is a single braid 12-strand rope constructed of Honeywell’s type 1W81 high tenacity polyester. Yalex is always finished with a Maxijacket coating to optimize the abrasion life of the rope. Yalex is the strongest of all Yale’s polyester ropes. Yalex, at a 5:1 application factor, maintains an equivalent working energy absorption capacity to Double Esterlon at a 4:1 factor. Yalex is also extremely easy to splice.

The maximum allowable leakage for new dry Yalex is 1.00 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.
