8mm Nylon rope is strong and flexible rope that can be used in varying applications and used extensively in areas where higher extension characteristics are required, or where shock loads are present. 3 strand construction makes it a hard wearing yet flexible product.

All our ropes are supplied by the meter, with each end cut using a hot knife. If you require multiple pieces, please add a note to your order with cutting details.
Weights and Dimensions may vary.
Break Strength: The breaking strength of a rope is the load at which a new rope will break when tested under laboratory conditions. Break strength should not be mistaken for safe working load.
Safe Working Load: Because of the wide range of rope use, rope condition and the degree of risk of life or property, it is not possible to make a blanket recommendation for safe working load. It is ultimately dependent on the rope user to determine what percentage of break strength is their own safe working load.
Wear: Ropes wear out with use; the more severe the usage, the greater the wear. It is often not possible to detect wear on a rope by visible signs alone. Therefore, it is recommended that the rope user determine a retirement criteria for ropes in their application.
