What is the advantages and disadvantages of different material of ropes
In marine applications, there are five main types of fiber ropes, polypropylene, polyester, nylon, polymer, and aramid. Each has some good advantages, but also some disadvantages.
Rope often combines different materials to produce high-quality ropes according to customer needs, and maximizes the advantages of each material to meet customer needs. Marineusedgood.com give some detailed information for four main kinds of used material for ropes, which is highly and widly used in marine related area.
Advantages: 1. Floating water 2. Low price 3. Not sensitive to chemical attack 4. Strong and wear-resistant 5. No water absorption 6. No strong loss in water
Disadvantages: 1. Poor UV resistance 2. Low strength 3. Low melting point 4. Low stretchability (not as good as nylon) 5. Hand feeling
Uses: 1. Small boat main mast control rope 2. Rescue rope 3. Towing rope 4. Rope used on skis
Advantages: 1. Good UV resistance 2. Shock absorption (good stretch) 3. Good chemical resistance 4. Moderate price
Disadvantages: 1. Too elastic 2. Performance weakens after being wet
Uses: 1. Anchor line 2. Towing line 3. Mooring line 4. Safety line
Advantages: 1. High strength 2. Not wet with water 3. Good chemical resistance 4. Good abrasion resistance 5. Good UV resistance 6. Light and floating 7. Good resistance to flexural fatigue
Disadvantages: 1. Too slippery 2. Low melting point 3. Easy to deform under continuous load 4. High price
Uses: 1. High-performance rope used on yachts 2. Replace steel rope
