Protective Coatings

Even the best balanced and highly engineered braids can benefit by the addition of protective coatings.  There are many benefits, the most significant being enhanced abrasion resistance.  Coatings can include colouration for identification and can alter the texture of a slippery fibre to provide greater interaction between cover and core.

  • Bindacoat and Urethane options
  • The impregnation of Bindacoat adds the dimensions of handling, wear resistance and fibre binding to the slippery texture of Spectra®
  • Urethane impregnation enhances the abrasion resistance of a braid by forming a protective barrier to the braid fibres beneath
  • Colouration can be added
