Polyethylene Rope

polyethylene-ropePolyethylene is a synthetic material commonly used in ropes. It is favoured for its abrasion and weather resistance as well as its ability to float and maintain strength when wet. With a minimum breakload of 2203kg, this product is suitable for a number of domestic and industrial applications. It is also thin and lightweight, making transport and storage much easier.

Key info:

  • Synthetic material, stronger than natural fibres
  • UV and water resistant, ideal for outdoor use
  • Rot resistant for a longer-lasting product
  • Lightweight, easy to transport and store
  • Will retain shape and strength when wet

FAQs

Are there any advantages to polyethylene?
Yes. It is a synthetic material meaning it is stronger than natural fibres. It is resistant to weather and does not absorb water. While is it not as strong or light as polypropylene, a more common choice of synthetic material, it it sometimes favoured for its abrasion resistance and flexibility.

Will this product float?
Yes. One of the reasons synthetic materials are preferred over natural fibres is that they do not absorb water. This means the rope will not expand or lose its strength when exposed to water, making this product perfect for outdoor uses including marine and fishing.

What is polyethylene rope commonly used for?
This product is extremely versatile and can be used in a number of ways. Due to the product’s weather and water resistance, it is usually preferred for marine and outdoor uses. While polypropylene ropes are stronger and lighter, some fishing uses are better suited to this product due to its flexibility and abrasion resistance. The rope can also be used for a number of domestic and industrial applications such as pet leads, gardening, construction, camping and many more.

Is it easy to splice?
Yes. Its 3-strand construction makes the product relatively simple to splice. Wrapping a small amount of tape to the area you want to splice up to, you will then need to thread the individual strands through the crowns, tightening as you do so. If you are inexperienced in this, don’t panic, it is easier than it sounds and there are a number of online tutorials and videos regarding this such as; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y5dvcelwTdc&t=785s

Is the material likely to rot over time?
No. This product is rot resistant as are most synthetic materials, meaning that they do no degrade in the same way natural fibres do. This is one of the many reasons synthetics are sometimes preferred to natural materials.
