Tough, Hard-Wearing Construction
Made from polypropylene, a particularly hardy polymer which is resistant to many solvents and glues, polypropylene rope is woven from three-strand yarn for maximum strength and durability. Polypropylene also has a higher melting point than many common polymers, increasing its resistance to heat and friction; and it won’t splinter, making it easier to use and more user-friendly, and prolonging its life even when frequently knotted and untied.
Polypropylene rope is strong and well-suited to a range of uses, including boating, pulleys and winches, and general-purpose fastening and securing. Thanks to sturdy construction and strong material, this rope is more than strong enough to fulfil these functions.
Polypropylene is rot-proof, which is a huge advantage for long-term storage and use, particularly in outdoors applications or boating, where it could be regularly soaked. In hemp rope or other fibres, this could result in rapid decay of the rope thanks to bacterial growth, but polypropylene is completely immune to rotting, maintaining its strength and capability for much longer than other rope types.
Floats in Water
This may not seem like an enormous advantage, but a boating rope which doesn’t float won’t last long. Since it can be easily retrieved from the surface of the water, polypropylene rope is a natural choice for ropes used around water, and the range of colours available increase visibility in low-light conditions, harsh ambient weather or against the dark backdrop of the water, improving ease of use in any conditions!
Range of Diameters Available
The diameter of rope you choose will influence a range of its properties, from the total strength and load capacity of the rope to the ease of knotting it and storing it, so at Ropes Direct we stock a broad selection of polypropylene rope diameters, including 4mm, 6mm, 8mm, 10mm, 12mm and 16mm, which are all sold on 200m coils or cut to length depending on your needs.
This makes the polypropylene rope from Ropes Direct a versatile, adaptable solution to your problem – whatever it may be.
