What is UHMWPE Rope?

UHMWPE stands for ‘ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene’. This type of rope is made from a very strong plastic known for its durable qualities and its impressive resistance to friction and abrasion. This rope is lightweight, has low stretch, and is size for size stronger than steel cable. This type of rope is also sometimes referred to as HMPWE rope.

Applications for UHMWPE Rope

UHMWPE Rope is used across a variety of industries. Some of its many uses include towing lines, winch lines, pulley systems, paragliding lines, deepwater installations, steel cable replacement, rigging lines, utility lines, and so many more applications. It is 1/7th the weight of steel cable and floats on water.

Steel Rope vs UHMWPE Rope

UHMWPE rope is used as an alternative to wire rope and makes a great replacement for wire rope. UHMWPE Rope is more affordable and it is also safer to handle with bare hands than steel cable. As mentioned above it is stronger than a steel wire of equivalent diameter. Many people are beginning to see the true value that UHMWPE has to offer and are choosing it over the wire.
