Uniline

Toughest polyester stringing line you can buy
Uniline is a parallel-core cable of PET(polyester) filament. The Uniline core is bonded together with a rubber-based adhesive, wrapped with red rubber tape, over-braided with a tough polyester sleeve and entirely saturated with another rubber solution. The cable is then cured in an oven, causing the rubber to advance to a solid layer with very tough mechanical properties. The red rubber layer not only acts as a moisture barrier, but is also a wear indicator.
