Description: Monofilament 'polyprop' is the lightest, most widely used, economical rope on the market. Strength is far greater than Manilla. Has long life, is easy to handle, remains flexible in cold temperatures and has excellent resistance to most acids and alkalines. Good impact loading and it floats.
Breaking: Break Resistance for this diameter is 1050 pounds.
Features: 3 strand regular lay rope. NOT FOR CRITICAL APPLICATIONS. Rated breaking strength is the optimum strength achieved with new rope under laboratory conditions. The test consists of a slow steady pull in a straight line. Real life applications normally involve many different factors working on the rope including age, moisture, binding, abrasion, knots and other stresses that will greatly reduce the breaking point of the rope. These cords are not suitable for lifelines or other critical applications. The normal standard for lifelines and other fall arrest or critical applications is that the working load should not exceed 1/15 of the rated break strength.
