Manufacture Paracord type III MIL-C-5040H


The fibers for the outer sheath must be colored using an approved dye; the dye cannot compromise the structure of the fibers or the finished product. The undyed fibers are twisted tightly to make the inner yarns, 3 bundles of fiber per core yarn. The sheath is then plaited over the yarns. The number of yarns are determined by cord type, type III would have 7 yarns. The cord is steamed to tighten the cord. This step is crucial to parachute use since the extra bit of stretch helps to absorb the shock when the parachute is deployed.
