  • Rope Swings

    Nylon Rope Growing up the house that I lived in had a huge tree in the back yard. The trunk had such a large circumference that it appeared to be three or four trees all transformed together. When I first saw the tree I thought that it would be the perfect kind of tree to hang a rope swing from, so I did just that. My father and I had gone to the hardware store and picked out a nice sturdy rope swing seat. We knew that we were going...

  • So Many Uses

    Nylon Rope Rope is used for all kinds of things. It can be seen in the backyard holding up a hammock, keeping a boat tied up to the dock, making an old fashioned rope swing or keeping items secure in the trunk when moving. When referring to the many types of rope, cords, lines and other varieties of braided fibers available, the term cordage is often used. Ropes are long fibers that have been twisted or braided together to form one single cord. The cord is typically strong and has...

  • The Many Applications for Nylon

    A relatively new material, having only been discovered in 1935, nylon has quickly made itself an important material in daily life. Intended originally to replace silk, it was first used for the bristles in a toothbrush. From there it was turned into one of its most well-known application, nylon stockings, and from there we now have it to be used for fabrics, parachutes, carpets, strings, rope and more. Solid forms of the material can even be used for items such as machine screws and gears. With nylon, the possibilities are...

Industry Information

Nylon Rope

Nylon rope is a synthetic cordage variety constructed of nylon fibers. Nylon is a synthetic polymer that was first produced by DuPont in 1935. Nylon is characterized by abrasion resistance, heat and corrosion resistance, rot resistance and other favorable physical qualities. Because ropes are used for securing and load bearing, these qualities are very attractive to professionals in the marine, agriculture, defense contracting, construction and many other industries in which ropes play an important role.

Nylon ropes can be used to secure bales in farming and palletized cargo on ships. They are used extensively as mooring lines at docks and shipyards; mooring lines are ropes that are used to secure watercraft at ports. Nylon ropes are particularly well suited to watercraft mooring applications because of their resistance to rot and their capacity to withstand constant stress. The only major drawback to the use of nylon ropes in marine contexts is nylon’s non-buoyancy; if accidentally dropped in water, an unattached nylon rope will sink. Polypropylene, which is buoyant, is a popular alternative to nylon mooring line for use with small watercraft.

Nylon rope was the first synthetic fiber rope manufactured and is still a very popular form of rope due to its many favorable attributes. Nylon rope typically lasts four to five times longer than natural fiber ropes. Rope has been an essential utility for civilization since before recorded history. For centuries, ropes of twisted or braided natural fiber were used by navies and merchants for mooring, by construction companies during building and in many other contexts. In industrial and commercial contexts, the use of natural fiber ropes has been all but completely eclipsed by the use of synthetic fibers like nylon. The benefits of synthetic fiber rope use are not without cost. Most synthetic fibers are derived from petrochemical products, the extraction and processing of which come with immense financial and environmental costs. While synthetic polymer development accounts for only a fraction of global petrochemical products demand, it is a significant percentage. For these and other reasons, some companies still choose natural fibers or non-petroleum-based synthetic fibers. Such ropes can still be suitable for demanding applications if properly cared for and matched to their intended uses. However, nylon rope and similar synthetic fiber-based ropes are much more popular and often less expensive compared to alternative compositions.
