Polypropylene multifilament ropes

This type of rope stands out for its high strength, high abrasion resistance and very good knotability. This rope also has excellent UV resistance. Thanks to its technical parameters and price, it can be an excellent replacement for more expensive polyester or polyamide rope.

TIP:
With the application of our high-tenacity non-flammable polypropylene fibre ANTIPYREX the rope can be used in a wide variety of areas, especially where safety regulations require the use of non-flammable tools and materials (for example, twisted ropes as construction elements of safety nets, nets for securing dangerous or flammable materials etc.)

Basic characteristics:

  • floatable on water, zero absorption
  • resistant in chemically active environments
  • excellent insulation capacity
  • wide choice of colours
  • working temperature - in environments up to 80°C (softening temperature 140°C, melting temperature 165°C)

Use:

  • leisure (hobby, camping, recreation yachting), textile industry (clothing, technical textiles - e.g. sports, construction sites). More information here.

Packaging:

  • plastic spools, coils, minicoils, hanks, etc.

Modifications:

  • spliced with eyes
  • special lengths
  • incorporated components – metallic, plastic (thimbles, hooks, karabiners, etc.)
  • colours and colour combinations according to customer wish (for new colours not contained in the colour card a minimum 5-ton order is required)
