Type III Commercial 550 Paracord
GENUINE COMMERCIAL-SPEC TYPE III 550 PARACORD SURVIVAL CORD
Type III Paracord, 100% nylon survival cordage. This commercial grade Paracord is essentially the same as the Ravenox MILSPEC 550 Paracord using only nylon materials and undergoing the same manufacturing protocols. This cord has a seven strand core.
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.
Construction: Ravenox Type III Commercial Grade Paracord has 7 inner cord strands each made up of 2 strands which are twisted together. The inner core strands serve to add strength to the cord and can also be used individually as sewing thread, fishing lines, medical sutures and other survival applications.
Outter Sheath: The size of this paracord is 5/32-inch (4mm). 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.
Kern or Inner Core: The core (also known as the inner kern) is made of several cabled nylon yarn fibers.

Key Product Features
WARNINGS: Knots reduce the strength of the rope up to 50%, splicing is preferable. Chemicals will cause it to deteriorate. Do not use this product for overhead lifting, support of human weight or athletic equipment, or other situations where personal safety or valuable property can be endangered.
The working loads shown should never be exceeded. Shock (stress or jerk) conditions can reduce working loads by as much as 33%. Never stand in line with rope under tension; such rope, particularly nylon rope, may recoil (snapback).
Never use this product to secure large flat surfaces or objects. All ropes should be replaced if signs of wear, such as broken fibers are apparent. Misuse can result in serious injury or death.
