BlueWater 5.5mm Titan Cord uses ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (HMPE, which is the same material as Dyneema) to produce an accessory cord that delivers exception strength at a fraction of the weight of comparable products.

With a rated breaking strength of 13.5 kN, the fully-certified Titan Cord has a similar strength to conventional 8mm accessory cord, yet is less than half the weight.

Not only is HMPE exceptionally strong, it doesn’t lose significant strength with repetitive flexing and offers a huge increase in abrasion and cut resistance.

With a Nylon sheath to provide easy handling, Titan Cord is ideal for making prusik loops.

The combination of high strength, low elongation and light weight make it perfectly suited for a range of outdoor applications.

Note: Due to the use of HMPE, a triple fisherman’s knot is recommended for tying Titan Cord into loops.

Key advantages:

  • advanced material delivers exceptional strength
  • cuts down weight and bulk
  • less elongation than conventional accessory cord
  • retains strength when wet
