Stretch Cord - Solid Elastomer

Stretch Cord - Solid Elastomer

Construction: 100% Blended Elastomer

An interesting alternative to traditional shockcord. Constructed from a specially formulated material to stretch up to 100% of its initial length, stretch cord is abrasion resistant and UV stable. Because there are no natural fibers, stretch cord will not dry-rot or degrade in salt water. It has different stretch characteristics than shock cord, with a more consistent return force - especially between 50% and 100% stretch. It also exerts a stronger return force overall: over 20 lbs at 100% stretch (more than twice that of shock cord at the same diameter).

When comparing the two sizes, please note that the difference in sizing is minimal, and may be difficult to distinguish. The 7/32" diameter will be slightly lighter over its length, and comes in a smaller full spool length, while the 1/4" diameter will have a higher tensile strength.
