550 TYPE III COMMERCIAL NYLON PARACORD
This is the product that’s become very popular for many applications as it’s offered in several colors and has an approximate tensile of 550 lbs. The cord is a “commercial” version of the real MIL-SPEC cord popular with the military. While the cover has the appearance of a PARALINE cord, the core is where the strength is.
Seven (7) strands of twisted nylon fiber (mini-ropes) in the inner-core provide the strength and durability for this multi-purpose cord.
It is designed for NON-CRITICAL general purpose applications where a greater strength and body are welcome.
