3 strand Nylon rope is an ideal anchor and mooring rope. It is high strength yet flexible, splices easily and coils neatly.
Elongation is based on figures taken from tests across the diameter range, to produce an average figure.
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.
