Care

Storage -

fibre rope should be stored in a dry unheated room

with free air circulation. Keep loose coils off the floor.

Dry properly after wetting -

sisal and manila fibre ropes

should never be stored wet as mildew and other micro-

organisms can occur under damp or humid conditions. You

should carefully dry the rope out under atmospheric conditions

and store in the correct manner. Synthetic or man-made ropes

are not generally attacked by mildew.

Protect from chemicals -

acid, acid fumes and alkalis, are

highly injurious to rope. Storage battery solutions, washing

compounds or solution and paint, all will cause deterioration of

the fibre.

Use

Inspect -

you should always inspect your rope PRIOR to use

for any nicks, cuts, kinks, chafing or tears.

Avoid kinks - when rope is repeatedly twisted in one direction,

kinks are certain to develop - unless twist in the opposite

direction is thrown in, or out, of the rope. Kinks pulled through

restricted space, such as tackle block, will seriously damage the

rope.

Don’t overload -

Use a 6 to 1 safety factor based on the

minimum breaking force of a new rope, Overloading may cause

permanent elongation.

Avoid sharp angles or bends -

fibre is somewhat elastic

and, as a sling or lashing will ”hug” an object. However, sharp

corners and angular bends put a heavy strain on the outer

fibres of a rope and should be avoided if possible.

Avoid unnecessary wear and abrasion -

the outer fibres of

a rope, no less than the inner ones, contribute to its strength.

When they are worn - by chafing or dragging over a rough, gritty

or splintered surface the rope is weakened.

Avoid sudden jerks or strains -

a rope may be extremely

difficult to break with a pull but can be easily be broken with a

snap. A sudden jerk on tackle, slings or lashings may result in

breaks that would never occur with a steady, natural pull.

Blueline - Polypropylene Rope 3 Strand Extra

Strength

High strength rope made from extruded polypropylene yarns.

Excellent abrasion and shock absorption. They are tough,

extremely strong and have excellent knot ability. They are

the same strength wet or dry and are UV stabilised.

Suggested applications:

Truck ropes, nets, ladder ropes, foot

ropes tarpaulin ties, blasting mats, car tow ropes, air sea rescue

lines, slings, control ropes, headlines, ducting draw cords.

The minimum breaking force must in no way be construed

as the safe working load of the rope.
