Ahhhh, you're just hoping that I'll refer folks to some obscure
bondage website. Sorry. I'll just refer you to the Cordage
Institute's "Fiber Rope Inspection and Retirement Criteria"
(International Guideline 2001-04)
If you're REALLY bored, you may also be interested in
CI 2003 - Fiber Properties (Physical, Mechanical and Environmental)
for Cable, Cordage, Rope and Twine.
CI 1202 - Terminology for Fiber Rope
CI 1500 - Test Methods for Fiber Ropes
CIB 1.4 - Fiber Rope Technical Information Manual
All published by the Cordage Institute (www.ropecord.com)
If you're more interested in the standards for your webbing, I'd
refer you to the Web Sling and Tie Down Association (www.wstda.com)
Their standards for webbing were last published in 1998. Revised
standards are to be published this year.
Anybody still awake after reading that? No? Didn't think so.
