It looks like Ocean Polyester, but I didn't think they made bigger than 10mm diameter? Could be wrong, mind, I often am.

 

@Tommy_B would know the best splice if it is.

It's 10mm Ocean polyester. Splices fine as far as I'm aware, but probably wouldn't bother doing so with what looks like a used bit of second hand hitch cord...

It's better than some for not melting, but it definitely does melt...

Class 1 Double braid for that @naturarbo

 

Like @Mark Bolam said, they dont make it bigger than 10mm so if iits 12mm, it might be used? If it is, I'd probably give it a miss if you're new to splicing

Won’t be able to now mark with 3 ropes in a tree... but for the record I have melted ocean polyester.
Armour Prus is almost unglaze able in comparison.
