VETS II-A EZ-SPLICE
The VETS II-A EZ-SPLICE is a three strand, right regular lay constructed rope. Each strand consists of a load bearing DuPont™ Kevlar® 29 core. The core is protected from abrasion by a non-load bearing, braided polyester jacket. As the name suggests, the EZ-SPLICE is easily terminated using a "lock-tuck" or "sail-maker" splice.

Kevlar is the ideal fiber for high performance applications that require low elongation, and is lighter than nylon and polyester. The VETS II-A EZ-SPLICE is ideally suited for Heavy Marine and sling applications.
