Langman Ropes polyester comes in a twisted and braided construction and is made of high tenacity (high quality/uv) yarns. Standard we have the following constructions available: 3-strand twisted, 8-strand or 12-strand braided and 8-, 16-, 24-, 32-braided and spiral braided. Langman Ropes polyester rope is very good uv-resistant and has relatively low elongation. Polyester rope is used for a wide variety of applications, but it's mostly used in the shipping industry and other industrial applications. In braided constructions it is used a lot as mooring line and towing line. The twisted construction is often used as halyard ropes on tall ships. In the industry pre-stretched polyester rope is also used a lot as hoistrope. In addition polyester rope can also be used for decorative applications outside, because of the very good uv-resistance. Besides that polyester rope can also be made fire retardent according to the dutch NEN 6065 building rules. In short, a rope for applications where a low elongation and a high uv-resistant are important.
