This 3mm flat elastic tape matches our round shock cords pulling/return force but with the aim to be sewed on various fabrics and to distribute the force to avoid shearing. Our 3 stock widths: 11, 16 and 22mm correspond respectively in pulling strengths to the round elastic cables of 6, 8 and 10mm diameter.

UV Resistance 3/5

With its PP cover and anti U.V. agents in its core FT50 can be used inside or outside, although it’s larger surface increases its exposure to UV. To maximize its longevity we recommend not exceeding 50% elongation when used outside (150% of its original length).

Its larger width exposes the elastic tape to more wear than round shaped shock cords.


Its flat design makes FT50 perfect to hold material with soft edges as it has an increased contact surface which will help to avoid shearing. Easy to bend and cut, this flat shock cord is perfect for any industrial uses.

The Multiflex flat elastic tape has a strong pulling/return force and with its flat shape the strength is distributed across its width.


FT50 will have enough strength to be used with safety thanks to a strong PP outer covering.
