2mm High Density Kevlar Cord
High Density Kevlar Cord
Aroundsquare's new 2mm high density kevlar cord is a full custom product, manufactured to our individual specifications, and unlike anything else you'll find on the market. The cord is a round-woven 12-strand construction, with a smooth feel and clean appearance. The cord is woven at high density, giving it less compressibility and more strength than average cord, with a spec weight of around 3.4g/m. This distinguishes it from most other commercially available kevlar, and the difference is clear. It is smoother and finer in both appearance and feel, it is extraordinarily strong, and is extremely durable. Importantly, as it ages, it doesn't swell in the same manner as coarser cords, and as it wears, it gets softer without a significant impact on performance.
The cord designed as an alternative to 275 paracord, or the 2mm accessory cord from Sterling Ropes that we use on many of our products, and was developed with our MKUltras front of mind. For the two strand compression into the lock bead, it's darn near perfect. It fits the standard 3.5mm bore of our Micro Boss and Lil' Boss beads exactly as intended. It is a breeze to install (with just a tiny bit of tape), and it holds the boss bead snug enough to keep it in place well, while still being easy to adjust.
Kevlar cord, especially at high density, is relatively stiff when it's new, but it softens up considerably with use. In the first few days, the surface will show some lightening and aging, but it stabilizes quickly with minimal further changes. As our Kevlar cord ages, it takes on a look and feel of soft cotton, but while cotton tends to fray and degrade pretty quickly, this is not the case with Kevlar. The feel is actually quite velvety and soft. It remains soft to the touch, and supple to manipulate. As the cord ages, it retains the same properties, and based on our tests thus far (we're a couple months in on this cord), it should have very good longevity.
