Our navy blue and black 8 strand ropes are made from Polyester. These ropes are great for mooring lines and are very easy to splice. White 8 strand Polyester is also available on request.
Elongation is based on figures taken from tests across the diameter range, to produce an average figure.
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.
