Rope is one of the practical products that many people use to do various things throughout their lives. Ropes are the interwoven fibers that enter the market in various synthetic and natural varieties. Each of them has different characteristics according to the raw materials, which in this article we intend to help you in getting to know the types of artificial rope.

Getting to know the types of ropes

Ropes are interwoven soft and narrow filament fibers that have a high thickness. In general, the rope is divided into two groups, synthetic and natural, which have different characteristics. In the production of natural ropes, materials compatible with nature are used, which do not contain any chemicals in their structure. Due to the absence of chemicals in this type of rope, the possibility of rotting, mold and also vulnerability to UV rays is high. Synthetic ropes are more popular due to their resistance and longevity and have found many applications, which we will further investigate this type of rope.

Synthetic rope

To prepare synthetic rope, raw materials such as nylon, polyester, polypropylene, etc. can be used, which are very durable. Unlike the natural type, this type of rope does not have a problem with wet conditions and works stronger when it is wet. Synthetic rope due to the raw materials
It does not suffer from mold and decay and is resistant to UV rays. One of the disadvantages of synthetic ropes is their sensitivity to heat, which melts when exposed to high heat. Synthetic ropes are very strong, so they can be used to tow and lift heavy objects.

Steps to prepare artificial rope

To prepare the plastic rope, its raw materials are determined first. The raw materials of artificial rope enter the market in two forms: first-grade and second-grade, the first-grade type is obtained directly from petrochemicals, and the second-grade type is the result of plastic recycling. After selecting the raw material and entering the factory, the materials are converted into filament fibers by the extruder machine, and by entering the special machines, ropes with different characteristics are produced. In general, the production ropes can be produced in sizes of 2 to 32 mm and in the length of 100 to 500 meters, which you can get according to your needs.

Types of synthetic rope

Synthetic ropes are divided into different groups according to the material, application, thickness, etc., and we will examine each of them below.

Polyethylene rope: Due to the polyethylene material, polyethylene rope has various characteristics, such as anti-radiation, light weight, high resistance, variety of colors, buoyancy, etc. For this reason, this rope is one of the most widely used synthetic ropes in various industries.

Types of synthetic rope based on application

Packing rope: This rope enters the market with a reasonable price and various colors, which is widely used in home use.

Restraint rope: This rope can be used for setting up a tent, transportation, rock climbing, sailing, etc. The harness rope has a light weight and can bear up to 500 kg. To prepare this type of rope, a polyester cover is used so that it has sufficient resistance to heat.

Fishing rope: Fishing rope has various advantages such as reasonable price, lack of water absorption, high strength, electrical insulation, etc., for this reason, it is used for marine purposes and telecommunication cabling.

Climbing rope: These high-strength ropes are capable of supporting human weight and, as their name suggests, they are a suitable option for climbing. According to the needs of people, climbing ropes are entered in the market in different types, materials, colors, thicknesses, etc., so that you can prepare them according to your conditions.

Tow rope: One of the most used and necessary ropes is the tow rope. This rope has high strength due to the presence of woven materials along its length, and the presence of two rings at the beginning and end of this rope makes it very easy to use. This type of rope can be used for carrying heavy objects, towing a car, controlling loads, etc.
