Twisted Composite Rope

Diameter: 1/4"
Length: 600ft


Twisted Composite Rope is made by combining two or more fibers – or polymer – types.  The most popular for contractors is a polyester/polyolefin combination, often referred to as Twisted Polyester Dacron.

It is made by covering polyolefin yarns with polyester yarns to create a strand, then twisting three of these strands together to form the rope.  The resulting product is less expensive than 100% polyester, nearly as strong, lighter in weight, and with polyester’s superior resistance to sunlight.  PolyDac is used in lifelines by window washing contractors, tree trimming contractors, and others requiring fall protection, as guy lines, and in a number of hoisting operations.

It holds up better than nylon when exposed to sunlight, is almost as strong, and has better dielectric properties (less likely to conduct current) than nylon.  In some diameters, because it has a good ‘hand’ and doesn’t shed as natural fiber products do, it is used in place of Manila in undulating and other exercise applications.  On the other hand, it does not absorb shock loads as well as nylon and its dielectric properties are not as good as those of polypropylene.
  • Available diameters of 1/4", 3/8", 1/2", 5/8", 3/4", 1", 1 1/2", and 2"
  • Available lengths of 600 and 1200 foot spools
