ROL NEWS--Kevlar Bungie from Giant Leap Rocketry

Kevlar Bungie from Giant Leap Rocketry July 5, 2005 Web posted at: 12:39 PM EDT

(ROL Newswire) -- Giant Leap Rocketry, Inc. introduces a 1/4" KEVLAR BUNGIE. According to Ed at Giant Leap, "the product is designed for the best of both worlds; it has the heat resistance and strength of Kevlar, but the shock absorbing ability of bungie." It is 1/4" in diameter and should be used in applications similar to those of Giant Leap's existing

1/4" tubular Kevlar. As can be seen from the picture, it has bungie rubber in the center, with a Kevlar wrap that is sewn in a way that allows the cord to stretch. The elasticity of the cord is much less than standard bungie in order to help avoid the potential collision of separated rocket parts that can occur with the highly elastic nature of standard bungie. Ed maintains that " to our knowledge, this is the first Kevlar Bungie ever produced."
