The HANDCOP when applied correctly is the most secure non-metallic restraint available.
STRONGER THAN STEEL
Strong and light. weight for weight, 8 times stronger than steel and 3 times stronger than fiberglass, polyester or nylon yarns.
Shows little loss of strength even during repeated flexing and stretching.
Thermal decomposition threshold of 500°C. At 250°C, it maintains more than half of its room-temperature tensile strength.
Self-extinguishing and will not melt.
Highly resistant to acids, alkalis and organic solvents; not vulnerable to damage caused by steam or sea water.
All HANDCOP Counter Escape Restraint feature a Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) coating.
This coating protects the HANDCOP from UV damage, increases flexibility, better knot strength, and chemical resistance.
Shows little loss of strength even during repeated abrasion.
