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.
