Maxim 5mm Tech Cord is an exceptionally strong cord that is very abrasion resistant and is perfect for cordelette
. The polyester sheath surrounds a parallel fiber core of 100% Technora, resulting in a cord that gets extremely high tensile strength (5,000 pound tensile for 5mm). Tech Cord is perfect for balancing anchors and slinging chocks and hexes, and can be used as an emergency rap line. The reported tensile strength of Tech Cord, as with any rope, can be significantly reduced when used with a knot. The most recommended knot for this cord is a double fisherman's.
