TemperatureNylon & Polyester are seriously degraded at temperatures above 194ºFPolyester is seriously degraded at temperatures above 194ºF
Improper LoadingShock loading, unbalanced loading, over loading and inadequate consideration for the effect of angle factors can adversely effect strength.Shock loading, unbalanced loading, over loading and inadequate consideration for the effect of angle factors can adversely effect strength.
Cuts, Punctures, AbrasionsAny of these can seriously degrade sling strength.
Red core yarns can aid in locating damaged webbing.
When the sleeve on a roundsling has been damaged so that the inner load bearing yarns are exposed, the sling MUST be discarded.
Foreign MatterMaterial such as metal chips, weld splatter, heavy grit, etc. can damage a web sling both internally and externally.Nylon & Polyester web slings are adversely affected by prolonged exposure to UV light, i.e. sunlight or arc welding.
Ultraviolet LightMaterial such as metal chips, weld splatter, heavy grit, etc. can damage the round sling both internally and externally.Round slings are adversely affected by prolonged exposure to UV light, i.e. sunlight or arc welding.
