Strong yet stretchy, nylon cord can be the ideal option for various fastening tasks. It has the resilience of other synthetic fibres, combined with the elasticity offered by natural fibre ropes like cotton. Our nylon cordage is just one of the types of twine and cords we stock.
Main Advantages of Nylon Cord
The rigidity of polyester cord means that it does not stretch when put under strain. In some cases this is desirable, but in others it is a problem. That is where nylon cord comes into its own, since its elasticity is an advantage. If you want to absorb shocks and apply consistent pressure, nylon cords will get the job done.
Durability of Nylon Cords
No rope product is completely indestructible, but nylon cord comes pretty close thanks to its long list of resistances. It will not rot in moist environments, decay in UV rays, deteriorate when exposed to chemicals and solvents or fall apart due to abrasions. It does absorb water and become more fragile when wet, which might be an issue in certain scenarios. Thankfully we sell a range of other synthetic twine and cord on our site, including polypropylene cord which can stand in for nylon in this case.
