Non-Elastic Cord

Our non elastic cord is a braided cord used in industrial applications, the garment industry as well as a decorative cord. You can purchase any of our non elastic cord, including our tubular cord, in cut length or tipped pieces as well as spools. The strength of braided cord is affected by the material, weave and diameter. A basket weave (also known as diamond weave) is stronger than a plain weave. Price is affected by material and diameter. No matter the market, diameter is usually chosen based on aesthetics.
