Polypropylene Rope

yellow polypropolene rope

A lightweight fiber that is also less expensive. Polypropylene has the great advantage of being less dense than water and therefore floats where other ropes will sink. Not only does polypropylene rope float but it additionally due to its plasticity does not absorb water. Unfortunately it is not very strong and doesn’t offer much resistance to stretch. Left outside in the sun it deteriorates quickly.
