The outter sheath and inner strands of battlecord are made from polyester. The majority of world wide snythetic fibre production is polyester. Polyester resists abbrasion, is very durable and has very little shrinkage or strech. It also resists mold, mildew, rot, UV rays and chemicals. For the most part it doesn't absorb water so it dries quickly when wet. When polyester is dyed it holds the color and does not run or bleed.
Battlecord's 7 inner strands of polyester allow it to be a true static core. Once pulled tight and tied it keeps it's tension. Other rope or cord can stretch allowing it to become less secure which requires more monitoring and retightening. The 7 inner strands are not cable like 550 paracord. These 7 individual strands are loosely twisted together, which forms more of a bulk core. To make the inner strands truely useful requires a couple of knots. Start puling a strand out of the core. Once it is out far enough, tie a knot in the end. Finish pulling the strand out and knot that end also. If you can keep this strand together it has a 350 lb minimum tensile strength.
Battlecord's polyester 48 strand outer sheath is smooth to handle and makes a great protector for the inner core.
Coreless cord or rope is just what it sounds like. Remove the core from the outter sheath. This makes the sheath hollow and ready to be used as a protector for whatevere you want to slide inside it.
Battlecord comes in various colors and lengths. The one hundred foot length is most popular.
