Shock Cord

Canada's Source for Shock Cord

Hercules SLR Shock Cord

Shock cord is characterized by an elastic core surrounded by a polypropylene, nylon or polyester rope sheath. This construction allows the rope to stretch while remaining resistant to fraying and damage from exposure to the elements.

Shock cord is most commonly used in the transportation industry because its elasticity  and capacity for shock absorption make it perfect for securing cargo. This is because while the inner elastic core of shock cord stretches, the outer layer simply elongates,  squeezing around the core and protecting it.

Shock cord is available in a variety of sizes and colours, and made with premium latex for uniform performance. Our shock cord is specifically designed to meet the extreme the demands of the lobster and crab fishery and is perfect for applications like trap components, industrial tie-downs, hunting & camping, and even DIY projects & home renovations.
