Nylon is the strongest of all fibers, and our nylon rope is manufactured using superior grade, high-tenacity fibers. It is also excellent against rot and mildew, and is not damaged by oil and most chemicals. Nylon rope is ideal for absorbing shock loads because it has the greatest stretch of all twisted ropes, but is difficult when stretch is not desired.
Nylon is very popular in marine rope applications because of its excellent resistance against rot and mildew, as well as abrasion. It is ideal for most applications including anchor and mooring lines. Our available constructions are: 8 Strand braided, 12 Strand braided and 12×12 Strand double braided ropes.
