LAWRENCE, Kan. — Kinedyne has introduced Rhino Web, a new, highly durable abrasion resistant webbing for cargo control tie-down straps.
Rhino Web yields 30 per cent more tensile strength after severe abrasion and is 30 per cent thicker with a tougher surface, according to the manufacturer. Kinedyne has also included on the back of the webbing, service indicator lines in compliance with CVSA Standards.
Rhino Web is rigorously tested using conditions that are much more demanding than standard abrasion testing. In standard abrasion testing the webbing is rubbed over a 1/4-inch hex bar with a 5-lb weight providing the tension.
This testing is adequate for standard tie-downs, but Kinedyne’s Rhino test more accurately portrays conditions on the road the company says. A 33-lb cement block is used in a 2,000-cycle test.
