Richelieu Hardware Smooth Braid Nylon

Richelieu Hardware

  • Nylon is the strongest synthetic material for commonly used DIY rope.
  • Nylon has significant elasticity and is best used for absorbing shock loads such as experienced when towing.
  • Nylon rope absorbs the shock, stretches, and then returns close to its original length once the load has been removed.
  • Nylon has good abrasion resistance, does not float, and will absorb water when wet.
  • When nylon is wet it will shrink slightly and lose 10% to 15% of its strength.
  • Nylon is ideal for use as a tow rope, anchor line, dock line, safety lines, and tie-downs.
