Ultrex Plus
Ultrex Plus is a double braid constructed of an inner load baring core of Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE), treated with Maxijacket coating for enhanced toughness. Sleeved with high-tenacity polyester, Ultrex Plus is spliceable, using conventional high-modulus splice techniques or the new Yale tuck splice, which shortens the bury portion and minimizes the length of the larger diameter associated with a bury-type splice.
