Nylon Marine Grade – MG3

For the Marine and Industrial Industries

Nylon Marine Grade – MG3

MG3 is a four-stage rope made with 100% Solution Dyed Nylon. The color of rope will not fade or wash out. MG3 has less twist for a softer lay construction. The softer lay construction is ideal for dock lines and anchor lines. This rope has great handling, stretch, shock absorption and abrasion resistance characteristics. Working load 10 to 12 percent of tensile strength.

  • Working load: 10 – 12%
  • Meets CI- 1303

Applications: Amusement Park Rigging, Anchor Line, Dock Line, General Multi-Purpose, Lifeline, Stage Rigging

Industries served: Marine and Industrial

Uses: Boating and wet applications and safety lanyards

Available in White, Blue and Black

Rope Safety Considerations

New Rope Tensile Strengths: New rope tensile strengths are based on tests in accordance with ASTM Test Method D-4268 on new and unused rope in laboratory condition.

Working Loads: Working loads are for rope in good condition with approximate splices, in non-critical applications, under normal service conditions. Working loads should be exceeded only with expert knowledge of conditions and professional estimates of risk. Working loads should be reduced where life, limb, or valuable property is involved, or for exceptional service conditions such as shock loads, sustained loads, etc.

The Cordage Institute specifies that the Safe Working Load of rope shall be determined by dividing the Minimum Tensile Strength by the Safety Factor. Safety factors range from 5 to 12 for non-critical uses.
