BEXCOFLEX ® compared to NYLON

    Smaller size and weight compared to nylon tails
    According to OCIMF guidelines, synthetic tails should have an MBL of 25% higher than the MBL of a mooring line. Tails made of polyamide (nylon) should have a 37% higher MBL than a mooring line because of the loss of strength when wet.
    Better UV resistance
    Marine finish
    TCLL (comparable to pure polyester and significantly higher than for nylon)
    Elongation (comparable to polyester)
