Exploring the Core Features of Duracordix’s NYLON Rope

Melting Point: 210°C-250°C  

Density: 1.14 g/cm³

Moisture Absorption: 4.5% of its weight

Elongation at Break: 20-40%

Thermal Conductivity: 0.25 W/m·K

Nylon rope exhibits good chemical resistance against most common solvents and chemicals. However, it can degrade in the presence of strong acids or phenols. It’s resistant to oils, alcohols, and aldehydes.

Extended sunlight exposure degrades nylon, reducing strength. Yet, even after 1000 hours of exposure, it retains over 60% of its strength

Nylon ropes boast high tensile strength, averaging 45-80 MPa. They exhibit exceptional fatigue resistance, retaining strength after enduring thousands of load-testing cycles.

Elastic Modulus:

2-4 GPa

Tensile Strength: 45-80 MPa

Flexural Strength: 60-100 MPa

Impact Strength: No break (Charpy, unnotched)

Quality Assurance Through Nylon Rope Testing


Nylon Rope Benefits: Strength, Durability, and Versatility

0 %

Lighter than Steel

0 %

excellent elasticity

0 %

Safer, Low Recoil

Nylon rope is significantly lighter than steel wire rope in same weight, making it easier to handle and transport. This lightness reduces the strain on equipment and minimizes fatigue during operations

Nylon rope exhibits excellent elasticity, providing enhanced shock absorption capabilities during heavy loads or sudden impacts.Its inherent stretch helps prevent abrupt jolts that could damage equipment or cause injury.

Nylon rope offers superior safety features as it doesn’t have the same level of recoil or snap-back potential as steel wire rope. In case of breakage, nylon has a lower risk of causing severe injuries or property damage.

Everything You Need to Know About Duracordix Nylon Rope

Nylon rope is a synthetic fiber rope made from nylon fibers, known for its strength, durability, and resistance to UV rays and chemicals.

Nylon ropes have high tensile strength, excellent shock absorption capacity, resistance to abrasion, flexibility in cold temperatures, and good elasticity.

yYes, nylon ropes are ideal for outdoor applications due to their UV resistance and ability to withstand various weather conditions.

Absolutely! Nylon ropes excel in marine environments as they resist saltwater corrosion and have excellent strength-to-weight ratio.

Nylon has a higher breaking strength compared to natural fibers like cotton or sisal but slightly lower than some synthetic alternatives like UHMWPE (Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene).

Yes, nylon ropes possess sufficient tensile strength suitable for heavy-duty lifting tasks; however, it's crucial to consider safety factors and weight limits during usage.

No significant impact occurs when exposed to humid conditions; however prolonged exposure may cause slight dimensional changes due to moisture absorption.

Yes, common braid patterns include diamond braid (solid construction), double braid (core inside a sheath), twisted/braided cordage (three-strand construction), among others.

While knots can be used temporarily with caution due to potential strength loss, splicing is the preferred method for creating permanent loops or joining nylon ropes.

Nylon ropes are not recommended for climbing purposes due to their stretchiness under load and lack of dynamic properties required for safety applications.er expectations consistently.

It's best to store nylon ropes in a dry, cool place away from direct sunlight and chemicals to prolong their lifespan.

Yes, nylon ropes can be dyed using appropriate fabric dyes; however, it's essential to follow instructions carefully and ensure complete drying before use.

Regular inspection for wear, tear, fraying, or damage is recommended. Cleaning with mild soap and water solution may help remove dirt or contaminants.

The lifespan depends on several factors such as usage conditions, frequency of use, exposure to UV rays/chemicals; generally speaking, nylon ropes have a long service life if properly maintained.

While strong overall tensile strength exists in nylon ropes, considerations like safe working load (SWL) limits must be adhered to during application-specific usage.

Yes! Nylon Ropes can be cut easily using sharp tools like scissors , knives etc.

No,Nylon Rope absorbs oil which weakens its performance over time.

Yes! Nylon ropes are commonly used for towing or pulling due to their excellent strength and shock-absorbing properties. However, it's important to consider the weight limits and safety factors involved.
