Nylon was invented in 1935 by Wallace Carothers whilst working for DuPont in Delaware. Sadly the long standing story that the name originated because it was simultaneously invented in New York NY and London LON doesn’t appear to be true. Nylon’s first use was for toothbrush bristles in 1938 then it soon became a replacement for silk fabrics and traditional ropes. This rope is a popular choice for mooring lines, anchor warps and chain snubbers due to its very high elasticity and strength. It is made to BS EN ISO 1140. Technical Specification: This rope will stretch about 20% at 50% of its breakload. This is a great hard wearing all purpose rope. With a working stretch greater than 15% it makes superior mooring and anchor lines. It is very abrasion resistant and has the highest UV stability for exceptional long life. It will not harden or yellow over time. It is easy to splice and coil.
