Why choose UHMWPE Ropes?

Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene Ropes are considered the best ropes for marine & industrial applications, performance yachting, aquaculture, commercial fishing, mountaineering etc and they can be the ideal substitute for wire and steel in the mooring line of the Tanker vessels, pennant lines for offshore rigs, tow hawsers, ship assist lines and a lot more.

Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene Ropes float in water making them significantly safer, their low stretch properties provide greater sensitivity and their low elongation combined with their low weight makes their handling easy and the manoeuvring of vessels extremely accurate especially in distress & critical times.

Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) ropes are 7-9 times stronger than steel (by weight) and 3 times stronger than Polyester of equal weight.
