Manufactured from Dupont Multiplex Dacron cover yarns for greater abrasion and frictional heat resistance plus a “hand” similar to Spun Dacron with a special lubricant to enhance strength and extend wear life. The inner core consists of lightweight twisted and untwisted polypropylene yarns. Identified by a blue, red and white marker yarn in one strand. P/D 101 is the prime workhorse on the river and canal systems.
This construction brings together the highest strength-to-weight ratio; lowest elongation; with excellent handling qualities available for Towboat and Barge work.
