- Manila Rope is a natural rope made from the fibres of the abaca plant.
- It is economical and strong and also has natural resistance to all weather elements.
- Holds knots very well but is affected by chemicals and mildew.
- The rope is combustible
- Does not float in water; absorbs water readily and fibres lose strength when wet.
- Low energy absorption (do not stretch significantly under load)
- Good abrasion and resist external wear well
