Polyester slings are lightweight materials knitted from polyester material, used for lifting loads without damaging the material. The labels of the polyester slings to be used must be legible and undamaged.
The load to be lifted by polyester slings must not exceed the safe working load limit specified on the label. The load limit indicated on the label is the safe working load limit for direct use. The safe working load limit must be calculated for different lifting applications.
In applications where polyester slings need to be exposed to chemicals, the authorized dealer or manufacturer must be consulted. Generally, polyester slings are resistant to mineral acids, but have low resistance to alkaline substances.
