Rope, Line and Twine- Durable, Strong, SecureYou can use high-quality rope, line, and twine for a variety of tasks, including wrapping presents, tying bundles of newspapers together, hanging banners, and fastening a flag to a flagpole.Varying Tensile StrengthsDepending on the use and purpose of the rope, line, or twine, there is a specific tensile strength most appropriate for your project. Crafting projects or tying tomato plants to a stake may require a cotton twine, which has a tensile strength as low as 20 pounds. If your project requires a higher tensile strength, such as tying a tire to a tree to make a swing, a good option would be a solid-braided nylon rope, with a tensile strength of 1150 pounds. Selection of Diameters The diameter can be as small as 1/4 inch and as big as 1 inch, but a smaller diameter does not necessarily mean that the rope, line, or twine is weaker. For example, twisted polyester rope has a 1/4-in diameter with a tensile strength of 1320 pounds. Some of the larger diameter ropes, however, can have a tensile strength up to 25,000 pounds and are commonly used for industrial and warehouse needs, such as anchoring pulls and lifting crates. Many Fiber ChoicesThere are many different rope, line, and twine fibers from which to choose. Nylon, polyester, 3-strand manila rope, cotton, and jute are some of the ones from which you can choose. They come in different colors as well, including red, yellow, brown, white, black, and green. If you need a stronger material, a chain may be a better option, especially if you are trying to pull a vehicle or heavy machinery.
