Twisted PolyPropylene compares pretty well versus other popular synthetics. It is two-to-three times stronger than manila, but not as strong as nylon. It has lower stretch than nylon, but not as low as polyester. It is more abrasion resistant than manila, but less than nylon or polyester, and is resistant to rot, mildew and most chemicals; can be stored wet, and it floats.
The big downside is that polypro does not hold up well to extended exposure to sunlight compared to manila rope or to other popular synthetics. This makes twisted polypro a poor choice for long term use outdoors, especially in load bearing applications.
Utility contractors use twisted polypro ropes for pulling cable (or heavy pull rope) through conduits – its slippery surface is a plus here, as a short term visual barrier, and for general tie down use. Because it is not absorbent, polypro is especially useful in pulling applications where there is a possibility water may be present.
