Polyester Rope is an excellent all-round synthetic rope, which is widely used in anchor rope, mooring rope, fender rope, lifeline, winch and hoisting rope in the shipbuilding industry. Our polyester rope is specially constructed to provide non-rotating thread. The special structure provides high resistance to severe abrasion under severe weather conditions. This kind of polyester filament is white, lightweight, abrasion-resistant, has good abrasion resistance, and low internal and external wear. We can also customize colors according to customer requirements. It will not fuse on the pulley, nor will it freeze.
In all kinds of chemical fiber and natural fiber ropes, polyester rope is the best one for UV resistance. It owns stable chemical performance, good abrasion, and chemical corrosion resistance. It absorbs water and keeps the same elongation rate and strength when it’s under wet conditions.
Polyester rope is made of 100% high strength polyester (polyester) fiber, which is woven by compound twisting and then processed into strands. The line is the most wear-resistant of all synthetic fiber ropes, with good aging resistance, fatigue resistance, good UV resistance and chemical corrosion resistance. At the same time, the breaking strength and elongation under wet conditions are consistent with that under standard conditions. Suitable for high load continuous friction operation. It is mainly used for mooring on ships, capching rope and towing cable and other transportation, national defense, military industry and port operations, industrial and mining, fishing and breeding, animal husbandry and daily necessities and many other fields.
As a professional marine ropes supplier, Boomarine offers a variety of polyester and polyester blended ropes, which are stronger and more wear-resistant than nylon ropes. Unlike nylon rope, polyester has a lower stretch coefficient. This characteristic makes polyester a popular choice for boating and marine applications.

Features of Polyester Ropes
- High UV resistance.
- High melting point.
- Soft and easy to handle.
- Has low elongation and low creep.
- Resists damage from rot, mold, and chemicals (including acids).
- Very strong, excellent abrasion resistance, will not lose strength when wet.
- Specific gravity is 1.38 g/m3, not floating in the water.
- It has good resistance to alkalis and acids at room temperature. As the temperature increases, the resistance decreases.
Applications of Polyester Ropes
- Anchor line
- Mooring line
- Fender line
- Safety lanyard
- Lifting rope and winch line
It is mainly used for mooring on ships, capching rope and towing cable and other transportation, national defense, military industry and port operations, industrial and mining, fishing and breeding, animal husbandry and daily necessities and many other fields. It may also be mistaken for nylon many times, but there are many subtle differences.
