Heavy duty rope is constructed from a number of materials, both natural and synthetic. For a job that will not encounter much moisture, a low-cost option is manila. Manila, made from the fibers of the Filipino abaca plant, is the strongest of the natural fiber ropes, with low stretch and excellent abrasion resistance. Manila resists UV ray damage and melting, but it is subject to rot and chemical wear. Manila rope is best used for tug-o-war, landscaping, rope ladder, rope railings and obstacle courses.

Most heavy duty rope is made from synthetic material, as it is generally stronger and more durable than natural fiber rope, and as it does not absorb a high amount of water. One such synthetic material is polypropylene. Though it is lightweight, polypropylene rope is strong and stiff. It is also possibly the least expensive type of heavy duty synthetic rope. It does not absorb water, does not conduct electricity and it floats. Because it does not absorb water, polypropylene rope resists rot, mildew, petroleum products, marine organisms, acids and alkalis.

Thick polypropylene rope works great for deck or landscape use, as water and snow ski rope, pool rope, construction barrier rope and electricity utility rope. It is also used well as a mega duty winch rope or an exercise component, such as an undulation or battle rope. Polyester is another material that makes an excellent heavy duty rope. Polyester is resistant to abrasion, UV rays, heat, rot, mildew, mold and organic solvents.

Polyester also does not absorb water and has low stretch. All of these attributes make polyester a great outdoor rope for applications where too much elasticity would make a project or activity dangerous. Such applications include: tug rope, antenna guidelines, barge tow rope, rigging rope, tree rope and safety rope. Heavy duty rope is prevalent in the physical modern world, and it is sure to rise to any occasion or application.
