GENUINE MIL-SPEC TYPE III 550 PARACORD

Mil-C-5040 military approved nylon cordage. Passes military specifications in strength and elasticity. 

Genuine MIL-SPEC MIL-C-5040 Type III Paracord has 7 inner cords each made up of 3 strands.

The braided sheath of this parachute cord is made up of 32 interwoven strands, giving the 550 cord a relatively smooth texture. This outer sheath protects the core.

The core (also known as the inner kern) is made of several twisted yarn, nylon, and/or polyester fibers. The number is determined by the cord type, and each yarn is made up of three (MIL-Spec) smaller nylon fibers twisted together. 

The all nylon construction makes Paracord somewhat elastic, with a minimum elongation of 30%, providing strength and durability during heavy weight exposure.

This quick drying all weather cord will not rot or mildew.

The US military specifications for Paracord quality gives strength and construction parameters where the final product must adhere to these specific guidelines.
