Nylon Rope

Nylon rope also called polyamide rope, it is manufactured using superior grade, high-tenacity nylon fibers, has twice the strength of manila rope and its has high elongation (under load) when compared to other synthetic rope. Therefore it has good absorbing shock loads capacity. It is also excellent against rod and mildew, and is not damaged by oil and most chemicals. Nylon is very popular in marine rope applications, it is ideal for most applications including anchor and mooring lines.



  • Specific gravity: 1.14g/cm³ (non-floating)
  • Melting point: 220°C
  • Elongation at break: 45% (8/12 strand), 30% (3 strand)
  • Water absorption: 2-5%
  • Double twisted construction (High tensile strength and good elasticity)
  • Good abrasion resistance
  • Good resistance to chemicals (Anti-corrosion)
  • Excellent shock absorption
