Because polypropylene rope is so light, it is the only rope that floats. For this reason, it is very popular among ropes for pool makers and water sports. It is affected by sunlight deterioration, more so than any other synthetic or natural fibre rope, but this can be overcome by adding an UV stabiliser or by keeping it away from direct sunlight. Also when wet it is flexible and does not shrink. Poly begins to weaken and melt at 150F, the lowest melting point of all synthetic ropes. It is not as strong as nylon or polyester, but 2-3 times stronger than manila. It's highly resistant to acids, alkalis and oils. Because poly is less expensive than other fibres, it is one of the most popular all-purpose ropes for the average consumer. Has been employed effectively as: mooring or hawser line, anchor line, towing line, utility pull lines for tension stringing, fishing rope, target tow rope, heaving line, barrier rope, life lines for rafts and floats, water/snow ski tows and as industrial slings. It can be used for almost anything and it normally is.
