Hemp Rope (twisted)
Hemp Rope, Hemp Cord
In this category you may order twisted natural hemp ropes made of high-quality fine hemp yarns.
Natural hemp is one of the oldest cultivated plants ever and has being processed in rope manufacturing since ancient times. The hemp fibres are been extracted from the bast of hemp and processed into yarn. High breaking load is being achieved due to the relatively long fibres.
The advantage of twisted ropes made of natural hemp is very low stretching. These ropes are prized for its sturdiness, abrasion resistance and non-slip characteristics.
- Abrasion resistance: very good
- Strength loss due to humidity: 0% (very good)
- Breaking stretch: <8%
- Fire retardant
- Heat resistant
- Subsequent impregnation with fire retardant is possible
- Subsequent dyeing is possible (for example with textile dye)
- Not resistant to strong acids
- Not floatable in water
- Knots in wet ropes are difficult to loose
- Skin friendly
- Non-slip surface
- Dimensionally stable
- Environmental friendly, renewable material
Areas of Application
Twisted hemp ropes were formerly used mainly for static loads. Today, hemp ropes are mostly used wherever environmental friendliness, abrasion resistance, heat resistance or skin friendliness are in the foreground.
For example: horticulture, landscaping, modelling, design, window dressing, foto shooting, labeling, maritime sailing, rigging on traditional boats and sailing ships, industry, construction, sealing rope, traction rope, horse rope, climbing rope, sport rope, handrail rope, safety rope, control rope in theatres, training rope, gymnastics rope, equipment of cages at zoos, bird cages, pet cages, interrior design etc...
