UHMWPE Rope

At SEACO, we offer ropes made from many different materials. Some are made using natural fibers, while many are made with synthetics. Among the synthetic category, few products are able to offer the incredible performance of UHMWPE rope, or Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene rope. Several Yale Cordage UHMWPE products are available at SEACO, including Maxibraid, Maxibraid Plus, SP-12, Mega Max, Unitrex, Ultrex, and Ultrex Plus.

UHMWPE Rope Applications

  • Anchor Rope. With so much strength packed into a low-stretch rope that is suitable for a marine environment, you have all the specifications needed for the perfect anchor line. 
  • Paragliding. It’s important to have a strong rope when paragliding well above the ground, but strength alone isn’t enough. This type of rope also delivers on flexibility, minimal weight, and thin diameters. 
  • Towing. Towing is another application where strength is essential. UHMWPE rope is an excellent choice for the task, as it is both incredibly strong and highly durable. 

Features of UHMWPE Rope

  • Incredibly Strong. When you think of strong ropes, you probably picture thick, heavy lines—but that’s not the case here. This is lightweight rope that comes in small diameters and can still deliver outstanding strength ratings. In fact, UHMWPE has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any synthetic or natural fiber!
  • Durable. This impressive rope will be strong the day it arrives, and it will remain strong for a long time to come, even when put to work regularly. 
  • Resistant to Cold. Some types of synthetic rope struggle to maintain their performance when the temperatures plummet, but UHMWPE rope is up to the challenge.
