Polypropylene Rope Information


Polypropylene rope, more commonly known as poly rope, is a general purpose 'all rounder'. Made from 3-strand polypropylene film, Tarpaflex poly rope is available in a 4mm diameter up to a 16mm diameter. A tough and hardy rope which has many uses in agriculture, marine and industry, as well as in domestic applications, poly rope can also be used in aiding the fixing and tying down of our tarpaulins.

Poly rope is flexible and relatively lightweight, making it easy to handle. Furthermore it floats, is rotproof, and even shrinkproof.
