Rubber Rope: 1,000ft by 7/16” Solid Core, made from EPDM
The E refers to Ethylene, P to Propylene, D to diene and M refers to its classification in ASTM standard D-1418.
The higher the ethylene content the higher the loading possibilities of the polymer, better mixing and extrusion.
The main properties of EPDM are its outstanding heat, ozone and weather resistance (think great in the summer in Phoenix!).
Note: There is no way to measure life span of this rubber rope, as temperature swings, UV exposure and constant stretching/unstretching break down the product over time. However, we have many repeat customers ordering this rope, after switching from from other vendors, which tells us we have a great quality product here!
Warning: Rubber rope/cord can spring back with a lot of force! Use caution when using any rubber rope/cord, safety glasses are strongly recommended!
