Polyester Webbing: Webbing made from polyester fibers, known for its strength, durability, and resistance to moisture and UV rays.

Nylon Webbing: Webbing made from nylon fibers, known for its high strength, elasticity, and resistance to abrasion.

Polypropylene Webbing: Webbing made from polypropylene fibers, which is lightweight, resistant to moisture, and often used in applications where exposure to water is a concern. It is also a great economical option.

Cotton Webbing: Webbing made from cotton fibers, known for its softness and natural feel. It is less commonly used in heavy-duty applications due to lower strength compared to synthetic materials.

Breaking Strength: The maximum force or load a webbing can withstand before breaking.

Weave Pattern: The manner in which the fibers are interlaced during the weaving process, influencing the strength and flexibility of the webbing.

Jacquard Webbing: A type of woven webbing with intricate patterns created using a Jacquard loom.

Twill Webbing: Webbing with a twill weave pattern, characterized by diagonal lines or ribs.

Herringbone Webbing: Webbing with a herringbone weave pattern, resembling the bones of a fish.

Grosgrain Webbing: Webbing with a distinctive ribbed appearance, often used for crafts, pet accessories, bags, apparel.

Mil-Spec Webbing: Webbing that meets military specifications for strength, durability, and other characteristics.

Seatbelt Webbing: A type of webbing designed to meet automotive safety standards, known for its high strength and abrasion resistance.

Load Capacity/Working Load: The maximum load that a webbing or strap is designed to carry safely. This is usually a 1/3 of the breaking strength. I.e. a 300 pound working load would have a 900 pound breaking strength.

D-ring: A metal ring shaped like the letter “D” often attached to webbing for additional attachment points.

Splicing: The process of joining two ends of webbing.

Ratchet Strap: A type of strap with a ratcheting mechanism for tightening and securing loads.
