Uses include anchor warp, mooring, docking, climbing, and safety ropes.
Is almost as strong as nylon, but it does not lose strength when wet.
It also has the highest resistance to abrasion, UV, and heat.
The main difference between nylon and polyester is the elasticity – nylon stretches significantly more than polyester.
Because of these factors, nylon is more appropriate for applications where slight stretch is desirable, such as dock lines or the core of dynamic climbing ropes.
Similarly, Polyester line is more appropriate for applications where stretch is not desired, such as lifting slings and hammock guy lines.
Applications: Very popular as top quality anchor warps for all boats. Also used as mooring, docking, climbing and safety ropes because of its low stretch properties. Suitable in all applications where low stretch but good handling properties are required.
Caution Because the rope will not tend to harden with use, long lengths should be used with swivels and mooring systems need to be of an approved design.
3 strand ropes are not recommended for pulling heavy loads as it coils and unravels when pulled by a Strong force.
Use braided ropes for pulleys and similar usage.
