Solid braid nylon is an extremely strong, soft, lightweight cord with excellent resistance to rot, abrasion, mildew, petroleum products and most chemicals. It has good resistance to UV rays. It has a shock absorbing elasticity that allows it to withstand great strain. Solid braided construction stays round and works well in pulleys. Nylon will last 4-5 times longer than natural fibers. Our nylon rope is a polyester/nylon blend which has the same strength characteristics of higher priced pure nylon rope. See our Rope Comparison Chart for more information.
