POLYSTEEL® Ropes are superior to manila rope and conventional polypropylene mono-filament rope in virtually every respect.
Polysteel® ropes are manufactured from extruded copolymer (polypropylene and polyethylene) fibers whose unique properties result in ropes that, size for size, are almost triple the strength of traditional high quality manila rope, and twice the strength of conventional polypropylene rope. Not only are Polysteel® ropes far stronger, but they weigh much less, making them easier to handle.
Manila rope can experience a rapid loss of strength in adverse conditions, but Polysteel® rope has very good resistance to rot, mildew, acids and alkalis. Polysteel® will not harden with age, experiences no loss of strength either from wetness or from drying, and has among the lowest percent elongation. The abrasion resistance of Polysteel® rope is superior to manila and polypropylene rope and - a particularly important consideration for rigging applications - Polysteel® withstands shock load much better than manila rope.
