See our rope coating demonstration video on this page. Purecast 603 is the most abrasion resistant high build flexible coating we manufacture.  It is recommended for coating rope, fabrics and netting where the highest abrasion resistance and durability is required, we offer a selection of 18 color pigments sold separately.  PureCast 603 is a solvent free low odor coating which can be applied in one or more coats as required.  PureCast 603 is a US military specification product used in the manufacture of helicopter lifting slings. The cured hardness is 40 Shore D, see technical data bulletin for complete information. Purecast is compatible with most synthetic or natural fiber ropes or fabrics.  PureCast 603 contains no solvents and is classified as a nonhazardous material for shipping purposes.

TrueKote CS 100 is an abrasion resistant high build flexible rubber coating. It is recommended for coating rope, fabrics and netting where abrasion resistance and flexibility are required; we offer a selection of 18 color pigments sold separately. TrueKote CS 100 is a softer more flexible coating than the Purecast 603 product.  It provides lower abrasion resistance than our Purecast 603 with a softer hardness of 82 Shore A. It is easy to mix and apply by hand no special equipment is required. Customers will choose this coating when greater flexibility and less abrasion resistance are required.  TrueKote CS 100 has been successfully used to coat Kevlar fabric lifting slings providing waterproofing and wear resistance. TrueKote CS 100 is compatible with most synthetic or natural fiber ropes or fabrics see technical data bulletin for complete information. TrueKote CS 100 contains no solvents and is classified as a nonhazardous material for shipping purposes.

FiberLock 100 is a low build vinyl based dip coating used to color coat rope, fabric and netting.  It provides color and consolidates fibers improving slip. FiberLock 100 penetrates deep within fibers and air dries.We offer a selection of 18 colors; customers may order this product clear and add colors as needed or pre-colored. FiberLock 100 is a US military specification product used in the manufacture of helicopter lifting slings. FiberLock is compatible with most synthetic or natural fiber rope, fabric and netting see technical data bulletin for complete information.  FiberLock 100 contains solvent and is classified as a flammable material for shipping purposes.

TrueCast CS 252 is a flexible rubber potting compound used to cast around the neck of braided rope eyes.  This product is used with a mould to cast in place rubber onto rope and fabric.  It provides flexibility and high elongation where rope eyes experience load stretching.  TrueCast CS 252 is a US military specification product used in the manufacture of helicopter lifting slings.  TrueCast CS 252 contains solvent and is classified as a flammable material for shipping purposes, see technical data bulletin for more information.

The recommended operating temperature range of our coatings and potting products is -20 to +200F. Do not store coated ropes where they will be exposed to temperatures above 200F.  Do not allow coated ropes to stand in hydrocarbons like diesel fuel, hydraulic oil or gasoline as these compounds will cause urethane coatings to soften and swell with long term exposure.  Our coating and potting products are suitable for fresh or salt water applications. For shipping purposes our rope coating products (in liquid form) do not freeze and are not damaged by low temperatures.
