Donaghys Superbraid is a high performance yacht braid developed through exhaustive testing on super yachts, Jules Verne, The Race, Whitbread, Volvo Ocean Race, America’s Cup, IOR, IMS, IMR and Olympic yachts. This development programme has seen subtle but significant changes to Superbraid as fibre technology and manufacturing techniques improve. Superbraid’s versatility and advantages over traditional wire rope have seen an increase in its use across a broad range of applications.
- Light weight UHMwPE core with HT Polyester cover provides high strength with minimal stretch
- Treated with Donaghys Bindacoat on core to prevent core/cover slippage
- Withstands shock loadings and accepts a tighter radius and knots better than Aramids
- Suitable for all running rigging applications
