3-strand Standard Polyester represents the best all round peforming 3-strand. Where Nylon absorbs water and discolours yellow with age, Polyester retains soft and white. The rope goes through a heat treatment process to relieve constructional stresses in the fibres due to twisting and cabling during manufacture, meaning that the finished product is stable and resists kinking yet splices easily. The product is of exceptional quality and performance and a good choice for most general applications.
