Nylon rope is one of the strongest of the industrial man made fibres. It was first to be introduced of the polymer based fibre ropes and the name Nylon is used in reference to all man-made fibre ropes.
It is available in four colours – Black, Navy Blue, Black and Olive with a very smooth surface, made up from multifilament yarns, it has a superior strength to all the other polymer based industrial ropes and has excellent wear capabilities it is also resistant to multiple loadings. Because of this, its high stretch combined with its high strength gives it excellent resistance to shock loading.
This rope absorbs water and sinks, it is prone to attack by acids but is resistant to most alkalis and tends to shrink with age.
