1/2" Red Nylon Webbing
Nylon webbing is softer than other types of webbing. This makes it ideal for projects in which you'll be handling the webbing. This webbing is not recommended for load-bearing applications. Use this webbing for bag handles and backpack straps, pet collars, leashes and harnesses, luggage straps, sports equipment and gear, and any other uses for a lightweight webbing. If you need a stronger nylon webbing with a higher breaking strength, search for Heavy Duty Nylon Webbing on our site.
All Sailrite® webbing features a catch cord. A catch cord is a yarn which binds the "knitted" needle edge of webbing woven on a needle loom. The catch cord prevents the fill yarn from unraveling at the cut end. Cutting webbing with a hotknife is still highly recommended.
Nylon webbing features high abrasion resistance but does not float in water. Due to nylon's elasticity, the webbing will stretch but recovers nicely. For a webbing with higher UV resistance, choose a polyester webbing.
