Regatta Lite utilizes multi-filament Polypropylene fibers in a twelve strand construction for a light weight torque-free rope that will float. Regatta Lite is an ideal choose for mainsheets and control lines on dinghies and small keel boats.
Compliance to the above specifications is based upon testing according to the Cordage
Institute Standard Testing Methods for Fiber Rope and/or ASTM D-4268 Standard Methods of
Testing Fiber Ropes.
Weights - Are average and may vary +/- 5%
Tensile strengths - Are approximate average for new, unused ropes. To estimate the minimum tensile strength of a new rope, reduce the approximate average by 15% (Cordage Institute defines minimum tensile strength as two standard deviations below the average tensile strength of the rope).
Subject to degradation from prolonged UV exposure. Rope should be inspected for splintering and brittle surfaces.
Resistance to most acids and alkalis. Chlorinated hydrocarbons above 160°F can effect the integrity of the fibers.
Melting point of 330°F, progressive strength loss above 200°F.
Good resistance to the passage of electrical current. However in rope form, dirt, surface contaminants, water entrapment and the like can significantly affect dielectric properties. Extreme caution should be exercise any time a rope is in the proximity of live circuits.
Recommended D/d ratio is 8:1
No blanket working load recommendation can be made because it depends on the
application and conditions of use, especially potential danger to personnel. It is
recommended that the user establish working loads and safety factors based on professional
and experienced assessments of risks. The working load is a guideline for the use of a
rope in good condition for non-critical applications and should be reduced where life,
limb, or valuable property is involved. Or exceptional service such as shock, sustained
loading, severe vibration, etc. The Cordage Institute specifies that the Safe Working Load
of a rope shall be determined by dividing the Minimum Tensile Strength by the Safety
Factor. Safety factors range from 5 to 12 for non-critical uses, 15 for life lines.
