State of the art edge protection built into sling. Safe Edge webbing is woven from nylon, but has a special edge protection woven into sides. Use Safe Edge where slings are subject to abrasive conditions.
Polyester should be used in situations where less elongation is desired. Also where slings are subject to acids, bleaching agents, or temperatures exceeding 180° F. Elongation of polyester is 3% at its rated working load limit.
