    some material you can take a lighter to and actually melt it so it stops fraying. most poly cord is like this.
    if you have extra, try it on a sample piece first. This may not work, depending on your material.

    And the gasket said to the bartender.....Oh no, sorry sir, I'm a frayed knot.

    always used the hi-temp silicone that I glued it with
    works fine

    Same here....just use a little Hi-Temp silicone and "glue" the frayed ends together.
