Heavy Duty Ropes for Tough Applications

Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) ropes, as the name suggests, are made of very high molecular weight resins. These ropes have high tensile strength, are extremely light in weight and stretch very little under tension. Being tough and durable, they serve as the best winch ropes and cable pulling ropes. They also have minimal elasticity. Therefore, they drastically reduce the hazards of snap backs. This property makes them a best option for industrial and marine applications, commercial fishing, aquaculture, performance and yachting, to name a few.

At Sydney Rope, we offer top quality UHMWPE ropes that can stand up to any conditions. These ropes are stronger than steel cables and are much lighter in weight. This property of UHMWPE ropes have made them all the more popular in off shore businesses of wind turbines, shipping, oil and gas. Being lighter and thinner, they are easy to handle when compared to conventional steel fibers. Today, they have also become ideal substitutes for steel and wire in pennant ropes for offshore rigs, mooring lines of tanker vessels, ship assist lines, tow hawsers and a lot more applications. In addition, having ultra-high molecular weight, these ropes float on water. This makes them a safe option for marine usage.

Properties and Applications

UHMWPE ropes are tougher than the steel and three times stronger than the polyester of equal weight. Exhibiting a higher strength-to-weight ratio, these ropes are widely accepted and used by some of the major industries, marine forums as well as oil and shipping companies during construction of offshore facilities.

The small volume of UHMWPE ropes makes them a good choice for easy storage as well as a reliable option in emergency cases. The best part is, they can be rapidly deployed even by a single worker. Due to the highest level of safety and security offered by them, they are now the recommended choice for safer mooring of tanker vessels.
