New England Ropes Premium 3-Strand Nylon
The ubiquitous dock and anchor line, this rope is manufactured from premium grade high tenacity nylon fiber, treated with a proprietary coating to improve fiber-to-fiber abrasion resistance. The result is a longer wearing, flexible and easy-to-handle line that has great strength and abrasion resistance.
• Ideal for dock/anchor lines and other uses requiring high-energy absorption
• High elongation
• Abrasion resistant
• Sure gripping surface
• Excellent wet/dry strength retention
• Easy to splice
• Recommended sheave diameter to rope diameter is 8:1
• Very little degradation from sunlight; can be used outside over long term if inspected regularly
• Sold by the foot; spool pricing available (600/1200 ft)
OUTSTANDING STRENGTH AND ABRASION RESISTANCE
A longwearing, flexible and easy-to-handle rope that has greater strength and better abrasion resistance than all other 3-strand nylon lines.
BENEFITS: Highest tenacity nylon treated with our proprietary Marine Tech coating to increase wet strength and improve fiber-to-fiber abrasion.
APPLICATIONS: Dock lines, anchor lines, and mooring lines.
- Long wearing
- Supple, easy to handle
- Excellent abrasion resistance
- Dock Lines
- Anchor Lines
- Mooring Lines

Very little degradation from sunlight. Can be used outside over long term if inspected regularly.
Nylon will degrade with strong oxidizing agents, mineral acids, and 90% formic acid. May discolor when exposed to high levels of carbon dioxide.
Nylon melts at 460°F with progressive strength loss above 300°F.
Good resistance to the passage of electrical current. However, dirt, surface contaminants, water entrapment, and the like can significantly affect dielectric properties. Extreme caution should be exercised any time a rope is in the proximity of live circuits.
Recommended sheave diameter to rope diameter is 8:1.
No blanket safe working load (SWL) recommendations can be made for any line because SWL's must be calculated based on application, conditions of use, and potential danger to personnel among other considerations. It is recommended that the end user establish working loads and safety factors based on best practices established by the end user's industry; by professional judgment and personal experience; and after thorough assessment of all risks. The SWL is a guideline for the use of a rope in good condition for non-critical applications and should be reduced where life, limb, or valuable property is involved, or in cases of exceptional service such as shock loading, sustained loading, severe vibration, etc. The Cordage Institute specifies that the SWL of a rope shall be determined by dividing the Minimum Tensile Strength of the rope by a safety factor. The safety factor ranges from 5 to 12 for non-critical uses and is typically set at 15 for life lines.
