An interesting alternative to traditional shock cord. Constructed of 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 proving a more consistent return force - especially between 50% and 100% stretch. Exerting a stronger return force overall-over 20 lbs. at 100% stretch (more than twice that of shock cord at the same diameter).
- Stretch Cord Solid Elastomer line can be used to replace shock cord in all applications throughout the boat. It works particularly well as jib car returns.
- The elastomer is smooth and slightly tacky to the touch.
Cover Material: No cover
Core Material: Blended Elastomer
- 100% blended solid elastomer. Be aware, due to solid construction any sharp edges that could nick or cut must be avoided. Under a load, a small nick will quickly cut the whole line.
End Termination: Knife Cut
- Melted termination unnecessary. Solid construction can just be cut with a knife. Use hog rings or plastic shock cord terminations.
