Unmanila Rope

If you like a lot of what traditional manila rope has to offer, but it isn’t quite right for your application, consider unmanila rope from SEACO. Both of these types of ropes have a natural appearance, are impressively strong, and can be used for many different purposes. But unmanila rope is made with synthetic Polypropylene material enabling it to handle wet conditions, with no absorption of water, which is a big advantage for some users. With sizes available from 1/4’’ up to 3/4’’, it’s easy to find what you need when you shop with us. We look forward to receiving your order!

Unmanila Rope Applications

  • Decoration. If you would like to use rope for a decorative project in landscaping or some other setting, give this product careful consideration. 
  • Rope swing. Building a rope swing with traditional manila rope may mean that you have to replace the rope often as it deteriorates. Using synthetic unmanila rope can offer you a longer useful life. 
  • Marine work. As a boat owner, you can never have enough good rope on hand. Unmanila would make for a nice addition to your collection.

Benefits of Unmanila Rope

  • Advantages of polypropylene. The synthetic nature of this type of rope means it will withstand adverse conditions. It is softer and smoother than real Manila rope, and it is generally easier on the hands. Unmanila rope is generally stronger than real manila rope, while still having that great natural look.
  • Great look. Even though this rope is made with a synthetic material, you still get that great rugged look that you come to expect from manila rope. 
  • Use around water. You can use unmanila rope in wet conditions, and it will not rot or mildew like real Manila rope. Unmanila floats, whereas real manila rope absorbs water.
