What is Polypropylene?
Polypropylene is a thermoplastic polymer (plastic) that, when turned into a rope, offers high flexibility, low stretch, low weight, and resistance to water, abrasion damage, brittleness, and chemicals. Polypropylene rope is ideal for marine applications and water-related tasks and sports like water skiing, creating swimming lane barriers, fishing, or Creating a Pile Hitch. Although highly flexible, polypropylene rope is somewhat challenging to tie. Polypropylene rope is a more cost-effective roping option than many other natural and even synthetic roping options out there today, making it a budget-friendly roping option for dozens of applications.
Types of Polypropylene Rope
There are two main types of polypropylene rope: twisted and braided. All polypropylene ropes will float in water, but there are a few differences between the two that are worth noting.
Twisted Polypropylene Rope
Twisted rope is easy to splice, and while polypropylene is already a low stretch material, Twisted Polypropylene Rope does allow a bit more stretch than braided rope and comes in several variations, diameters, lengths, colors, and styles for a variety of uses. The Twisted Polypro California Truck Rope is perfect for securing cargo without worrying about frayed edges, frozen gears, deterioration from road salts, or environmental exposure.
Braided rope is often less flexible, more difficult to splice, and offers less stretch than twisted rope. SGT KNOTS Hollow Braided Polypropylene Rope provides a virtually impenetrable roping option capable of withstanding prolonged exposure to hot and cold temperatures, chemical wear, ice, and snow, making it an excellent roping option for landscaping, construction, survival needs, and more. Enjoy this rope in several diameters, lengths, and colors to best fit your needs! Are you working with livestock? The lightweight feel and affordable price of the MFP Solid Braid Polypropylene Derby Rope has been a long-time trusted roping option for horse handlers and livestock workers.
