Product Detail

Quality Nylon Rope – Marine Grade Rope

The versatility of nylon rope allows for extensive applications in boats, large vessels, tugs, oil fields, mines, and various other areas. Its robust construction and reliable performance ensure its effectiveness in handling heavy loads and withstanding harsh conditions.

Whether for mooring, towing, lifting, or other marine operations, Marine Nylon Rope provides a dependable solution. Its durability and resistance to wear and corrosion make it a trusted choice in the maritime industry.

Marine Nylon Rope Applications

Marine Nylon Rope is an excellent choice for boat dock lines. Its high strength, durability, and resistance to wear and corrosion make it well-suited for securing boats and providing reliable mooring. The nylon construction ensures optimal shock absorption, helping to protect both the boat and the dock from sudden jolts or movements caused by waves or wind. Additionally, the superior abrasion resistance of Marine Nylon Rope ensures a long service life, even in rough docking conditions. With its reliable performance and suitability for marine environments, Marine Nylon Rope is a trusted option for boat dock lines.

1 4 Nylon Rope – Double Braided Nylon Rope

Our 1/4″ double braided nylon rope, known as 1 4 Nylon Rope, is a superb option suitable for boats, crafts, and a wide range of general applications. With a strong tensile strength of 2,000 lb and a recommended maximum working load of 400 lb, this double braided nylon rope can confidently handle moderate loads. Its 1/4″ diameter is typically suitable for boats up to 20 feet in length, providing reliable performance.

3/8 Nylon Rope – Boat Dock Line

The 3/8″ nylon rope is a versatile and reliable option for various applications. With a diameter of 3/8″, it is specifically designed for medium-sized tasks and is often utilized as a boat dock line. It is suitable for boats ranging from 20 to 25 feet in length, providing secure and dependable mooring.

72mm Nylon Rope – Ship Mooring Rope

In addition to its common usage as a dock line for boats, nylon rope, with its larger diameter, also serves as a reliable mooring rope for ships. The 72mm diameter of this nylon rope signifies its substantial size and strength. It is designed to handle significant loads and tensions associated with mooring large ships. The thickness and sturdiness of the rope provide a secure and reliable anchoring solution, contributing to the stability and safety of the vessel during mooring.

Nylon VS Polyester Rope

Nylon and polyester are two popular materials used in the production of ropes, each with its own distinct characteristics and advantages. Here is a comparison between nylon and polyester rope:

  • Strength and Durability:
    • Nylon: Nylon ropes are known for their exceptional strength and high elongation properties. They have a high tensile strength and can withstand heavy loads without breaking. Nylon ropes also exhibit good resistance to abrasion and UV rays, ensuring durability over time.
    • Polyester: Polyester ropes are also strong and durable, but they have a slightly lower tensile strength compared to nylon. However, polyester ropes have better resistance to UV rays and are less prone to stretching, which can be an advantage in certain applications.
  • Stretch and Elasticity:
    • Nylon: Nylon ropes have a higher degree of stretch or elasticity, which allows them to absorb shocks and dynamic loads effectively. This property makes nylon ropes ideal for applications where shock absorption is important, such as towing or lifting.
    • Polyester: Polyester ropes have less stretch compared to nylon, making them suitable for applications where minimal elongation is desired, such as static rigging or applications requiring precise control.
  • Moisture Absorption and Water Resistance:
    • Nylon: Nylon ropes tend to absorb water, which can result in increased weight and reduced strength when wet. However, nylon ropes maintain their strength and other properties in wet conditions and are highly resistant to rot and mildew.
    • Polyester: Polyester ropes have low moisture absorption, meaning they do not gain weight or lose strength significantly when exposed to water. Polyester ropes also resist rot, mildew, and degradation in wet environments.
  • Chemical Resistance:
    • Nylon: Nylon ropes offer good resistance to many chemicals, including alkalis and most solvents. However, they are less resistant to acids compared to polyester ropes.
    • Polyester: Polyester ropes exhibit excellent resistance to acids, making them suitable for applications where exposure to acidic substances is expected. They also have good resistance to most chemicals.

Structure Of Marine Grade Nylon Rope

There are two main types of nylon rope: double braided nylon rope, which features a construction with two braided layers, and twisted nylon rope, which is made by twisting multiple strands of nylon fibers together.

Compared to double braided nylon rope, twisted nylon rope is typically more affordable and easier to splice or knot. However, it may have slightly lower tensile strength and elongation properties.
