Material

Cotton

Cotton is a soft, fluffy staple fiber that grows in a boll, or protective case, around the seeds of the cotton plants of the genus Gossypium in the mallow family Malvaceae. Cotton fibre prodcues a soft natural fibre rope ideal for display purposes.

Nylon

Nylon (or Polyamide) fibres are stronger than Polyester fibres and provide greater stretch (elongation), Ropes produced with Nylon fibres can lose upto 15% strength when wet. The specific gravity of Nylon is 1.14 which makes it sink, the fibre has a melting point of 250 degree C.

Polyester

Polyester has a specific gravity of 1.38 which means it will not float. Polyester has no strength loss when wet, it is flexible and has good abrasion resistance. Polyester fibres also have good resistance to chemicals and have a melting point of 295°C.

Polypropylene

Polypropylene (PP), also known as Polypropene, is a thermoplastic polymer used in a wide variety of applications. It is produced via chain-growth polymerization from the monomer propylene. Polypropylene has a melting point of 160 °C and the fibre floats. Various forms of Polypropylene yarns are used to produce ropes such as Split film, Yarn construction, multifilament, and monofilament each type produces a rope with different properties and uses.

Sisal

Sisal fibre for ropes normally comes from Africa and Brazil, it is a stiff strong natural fibre that we make into natural twisted ropes and twines. Sisal is a light beige colour and the ropes and twines are normally left natural but they can also be treated for weather protection.
