Polyester Rope

A reliable source for Polyester Rope information and leading Polyester Rope Companies & Manufacturers.

Polyester rope is a great solution for general industrial and rigging applications. It is one of the most popular ropes used in the boating industry. Its strength is very close to nylon, but it stretches very little; therefore, it cannot absorb loads. Read More…

Polyester rope is resistant to moisture and chemicals, just like nylon, but it is superior in abrasion and sunlight resistance. It performs very well outdoors as well as in harsh elements of nature. Polyester rope is good for rigging, mooring, and industrial plant use. Therefore it is utilized as a fish net and bolt rope.

Types of Polyester Ropes

The types of polyester ropes include:

Double Braid Polyester Rope

This type of polyester rope has unparalleled strength. The polyester material used for making this type of rope has a tensile strength similar to that of nylon 6. Double braid polyester rope is stronger than nylon. Since polyester is not stretchy, it is mostly used in the lifting field. The stretch in polyester material is reduced by the pre-stretching process that occurs during manufacturing.

double braided rope

This type of rope exhibits a high melting point of 240°C. As a result, it only loses a very small percentage of its reliable breaking strength after several years of outdoor use. The durable double braid construction combines a 12-strand core and a 24-strand polyester sheath. The main advantage of this type of rope is that it is resistant to abrasion and heavy wear. Double braid polyester ropes are most suitable for rigging, mooring lines, and large mainsheets.

12-Strand Polyester Rope

The 12-strand polyester braided rope has several benefits that make it ideal for different environments for a high-quality performance. This type of polyester rope has a higher strength-to-weight ratio. It also has stronger grips than other ropes, such as 8-strand polyester. In addition, 12-strand polyester ropes are similar to double-braid polyester ropes in that they are fast drying and perform competently under UV conditions.

They are also flexible and capable of absorbing shock like double braid ropes. The only thing that differentiates these two types of polyester ropes is that 12-strand ropes are single braided, so they cannot rotate under heavy loads and are not capable of creating a kink like double braid polyester ropes. Therefore 12-strand polyester ropes are ideal for dock lines, smaller mainsheets, or other general nautical rigging applications.


These types of ropes are strong enough to resist wear and tear. As a result, they have a longer life expectancy than dock lines made from nylon. Boats use polyester dock lines since they have enough strength to handle violent wind storms. In addition, they avoid damage to the boat by minimizing its movement in its slip.

Dockline was created with exceptional strength, simple handling, and great abrasion resistance in mind. This rope works great for docking, anchoring, and mooring. In addition, it has excellent elongation properties that shield your boat from bad weather. HT-polyester ropes don't make as much of a creaking noise as polypropylene ropes. But, in the end, any material that rubs against a surface will generate some noise. A protective cover covering the rope or changing the dock line angle would significantly improve this problem.

Applications and Uses of Polyester Rope

  • Polyester rope is used in anchor lines
  • Lanyards
  • Mooring lines
  • Fenders as well as fender lines
  • Polyester rope is used on winches
  • Blocking
  • Dock rigging

Benefits of Polyester Rope

  • The polyester rope does not lose strength when it becomes wet; it is very strong
  • It is soft to handle and also flexible
  • Polyester rope exhibit good resistance to abrasion
  • It is resistant to rot and ultraviolet radiation
  • It exhibits little to no stretch
  • The polyester rope has a high melting point
  • It does not conduct electricity
  • It is resistant to acids and alkalis at room temperature.
  • Polyester rope is also resistant to petroleum-based products, solvents, and bleaches.
  • Polyester rope is easy to splice with stainless steel, nylon, soft eyes, galvanized thimbles

Drawbacks of Polyester Rope

  • The polyester rope has the disadvantage of not floating
  • Some of the polyester rope braids are considerably stiffer and do not work in blocks
  • Polyester rope is not ideal when the load is subjected to jerking
  • It becomes weaker when the material is soaked in strong bleach for a long time
