The Samson Rope 472048006020 2 In 1 Super Strong nylon rope is 600 ft. long, is made of treated, double-braided nylon, and can be used as an anchor line or dock line or in other maritime applications. The rope is made of double-braided nylon for strength and elasticity and is treated to resist water and weather. It is 600 ft. long, measures 3/4" in diameter, and has a tensile strength of 18,800 lb.
Fibrous ropes used for pulling and lifting are made of natural and/or synthetic fiber strands. A combination of characteristics, including material, construction, diameter, length, and breaking strength, give each rope its performance capability. Fibrous rope materials are selected for properties such as strength, flotation, elasticity, and resistance to abrasion, ultraviolet light, and chemical compounds. In solid braided rope, strands alternate between forming the outside of the rope and the interior of the rope. Solid braided rope tends to hold its round shape under pressure and load, making it useful in pulleys and winches. This type of rope is sturdy but not suitable for splicing. The breaking strength for fibrous rope is the strength at which new rope will fail under a stationary load. Breaking strength is not considered safe working load (SWL) limit.
Samson Rope manufactures synthetic rope for marine, mining, aerospace, rescue, and military applications. The company, founded in 1878 and headquartered in Ferndale, WA, meets International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001:2008.
