Ever since releasing Ironwire many years ago, people have been asking us to make a reflective version of it. So I did. But I never officially released it.. I have made it for a few companies over the years as "custom cordage". But the request line has stayed open and people keep asking for it... So I decided to officially start selling it as a stock product. Like Ironwire, the jacket is made using a Fusion of High Tenacity Polyester and Dyneema SK75. And like Glowire, I use twice as much 3M Scotchlite Reflective as everyone else. This makes for a very reflective, super high strength cord. The hybrid jacket construction takes advantage of both fibers strengths, resulting in a product that is extremely strong, low stretch, abrasion resistant, UV resistant, won't freeze, knots and unknots really great, and has out of this world cut resistance. The core is made using 100% Dyneema SK78 which is high strength, low creep version of SK75. Made in the USA, using the best materials on Earth!

What sets our Ironwire apart from other high strength Accessory Cords?
We use the best yarns possible. We braid the line so it's strong, low stretch, and very tangle resistant. We give you more product for less money. We design the line to work really great and we make it ourselves.
FAQ.. How to melt the core and jacket together?
The simple and easy solution is to go back from the tail end of the cord about a foot or two and milk the Polyester/Dyneema jacket over the Dyneema core. Once you make the jacket slightly longer than the core (you only need to make it about 1/8"), then it's time to melt the ends together. The Polyester/Dyneema jacket will encapsulate over the Dyneema core locking it in place. It is a permanent solution that you can use with all cords/ropes with different yarn chemistries.
