Polyamide or nylon was the first material used for synthetic rope.

It is a chain of amide monomers composed of benzene and pressed into granules via a specific production process. These granules are melted and extruded. This creates filaments or fibers (= melt spinning).

The fibers are then spun into yarn and treated further to produce the finished product.



  • Synthetic rope, not biodegradable
  • Strong and durable
  • Flexible and soft rope, which hardens in water
  • Easy to knot


  • Masonry
  • Floor fitting strap
  • Welding/ cable pulling
  • Sun blind string
  • Tents and flagpoles

Technical details

  • (Usually 16 strand) braided or 3 or 4 strand twisted rope
  • Synthetic rope with the highest tensile strength and resilience
  • Shock absorbent, high degree of elasticity (± 20%)
  • Moisture resistance: absorbs water and sinks (density 1.14 g/cm³), resistant to rotting but loses 10 to 15% of its tensile strength when wet. Regains tensile strength when dry.
  • UV resistant
  • Heat resistant: melts from 215°C
  • Not resistant to acids, resistant to bases
  • Color: white, some items also in khaki, fluorescent yellow, black, blue and red.
