The classic multithread shock cord provides a high resistance to abrasion for high friction tasks such as holding truck tarps.

Due to its PE outer covering and U.V. resistant agents in its core, the classic Multiflex will be great for all kind of uses indoor and outdoor.


Covered with PE, the Multiflex W65 has the best resistance to abrasion in our stock range, enabling this heavy duty shock cord to be used in a variety of industrial fields where high friction can be applied.


The W65 has a multi threads rubber inner core. It will have a section that tends to open up when cut which could make it harder to add fittings. The PE outer covering has a tough touch that is hard to bend and to make knots.


The Multiflex PE shock cord has a high pulling/return force. This classic shock cord is a perfect match for heavy duty uses in industry such as holding truck tarpaulins or advertisement banners.


Having a high strength before breaking insures security for workers and prevents incidents with goods.
