Polypropylene rope is lightweight, strong and easy to splice. it's ideal for jobs, hobbies and recreational use around water as it floats on the surface. Buoyancy gives it good dielectric properties meaning it won't conduct an electric current if it touches a live wire, so it's a great rope for use around utility wire, trimming trees, etc. A slippery surface also makes it useful for pulling cable through conduit and for general tie down use. Polypropylene will not mildew or rot, or react to petroleum products, marine organisms, acids and alkalis.
