Overview

Evolution Breeze

Evolution Breeze has a multi-filament Polypropylene core and a melange style Polyester and Technora® cover. Unlike most braids, the strength comes from the cover so the rope is ideal for endless splices. The melange style of cover is not only for appearance, but also balances the load on the cover and gives the rope good abrasion resistance.

Load-Elongation Curve

Elongation is based on figures taken from tests across the diameter range, to produce an average figure.

Applications

Control Lines

Control lines are used to make adjustments to different parts of the sail and the rig. Kingfisher Yachts ropes have many different rope options for control lines on board.

Halyards

A Halyard is used to hoist a sail, ropes used for halyards are normally very low stretch to keep the sail raised and taut.

Material

Technora®

Technora® is a para-aramid fibre, exclusively produced by Teijin Aramid in Matsuyama, Japan. The fibre is available in two colours natural beige colour and black version. Technora® is strong with excellent abrasion resistance, the fibre has no melting point but starts to decompose once the ambient temperature reaches 500 °C (932 °F).

Polyester

Polyester has a specific gravity of 1.38 which means it will not float. Polyester has no strength loss when wet, it is flexible and has good abrasion resistance. Polyester fibres also have good resistance to chemicals and have a melting point of 295°C.

Polypropylene

Polypropylene (PP), also known as Polypropene, is a thermoplastic polymer used in a wide variety of applications. It is produced via chain-growth polymerization from the monomer propylene. Polypropylene has a melting point of 160 °C and the fibre floats. Various forms of Polypropylene yarns are used to produce ropes such as Split film, Yarn construction, multifilament, and monofilament each type produces a rope with different properties and uses.
