A complete range of nylon rope to suit all needs

As part of our nylon rope and cord collection, we currently stock 3 strand nylon (polyamid) rope in a broad spectrum of diameters – ranging from 6mm – 20mm. These can be bought:

  • by the metre
  • in 220m coils
  • wound on 220m cardboard reels

Depending on the thickness of the rope, the minimum breaking load ranges from approximately 0.809 to 29.988 tonnes – but, please note, these figures are not test certificated.

All of our nylon ropesare manufactured by a European ISO 9001 certified manufacturer. As such, they’re made to EN ISO 1140:2004 requirements and are guaranteed to be superior quality – coming with heat sealed ends as standard. However, if required, they can also be whipped, soft spliced or hard spliced. More information on these options can be found on the ‘rope end finishes’ page. 

What is 3 strand nylon rope?

Just as the name suggests, nylon rope is a rope made from synthetic nylon fibres – with a twisted three-strand construction. It’s also sometimes referred to as ‘polyamid rope’ (as nylon belongs to a family of polymers known as polyamide), and it boasts a range of useful properties. For example, it:

  • is incredibly strong (the strongest rope in common use)
  • feels soft and smooth to touch
  • is pliable and easy-to-handle
  • demonstrates excellent resistance to UV and abrasion
  • melts at a high temperature (i.e. 210°C)
  • is durable and long-lasting

Nylon rope also benefits from a high level of elasticity. It’s successfully able to return to its original length after being stretched, and as a result, is most commonly used for shock absorbency and high-strength applications – such as lifting, towing, mooring and winching.
