This 1/8-inch by 1500-foot solid braid nylon rope reel is the strongest synthetic fiber in general use. Nylon is the strongest of all ropes, and when stretched, has a “memory” for returning to its original length. It has excellent shock absorbing elasticity.
Nylon lasts four to five times longer than natural fibers because it is resistant to rot, abrasion, mildew, petroleum products, and most chemicals. It is a strong, soft, lightweight cord. Like manila, nylon has good resistance to ultraviolet deterioration from sunlight (referred to as “UV stability”).
The solid braid construction is firm, round and tightly woven with a special lock-stitch construction which prevents unraveling when cut or torn. solid braided rope stays round, and stands up especially well to chafing of blocks and pulleys. The solid braid construction cannot be spliced.
