Premium Nylon Twisted Rope Anchor Lines - One Stop Marine
- Firmly spliced stainless steel thimble
- Stretches (reduces breaking y spreading out the load)
- Resistant to many fluids and UV light
- High wet strength
The strongest rope manufactured, nylon can absorb sudden shock loads that would break ropes of other fibers. This ability allows this product to be widely used in the marine industry for both anchor lines and dock lines. Made from nylon fiber which is light and heat stabilized, nylon rope is resistant to rot, oils, gasoline, grease, marine growth and most chemicals.
3-strand twisted nylon is known for its elasticity and tremendous shock absorbing qualities. When new, nylon ropes can stretch up to 35% of their length before break. Stretch characteristics will reduce relative to the amount of use and can lose 10% of its tensile strength when wet. It has good abrasion resistance, is rot proof, resists oil, gasoline, and most chemicals. It has good resistance to UV rays. Nylon will last 4-5 times longer than natural fibers.
