MANILA ROPE 3/8" 600FT
Manila rope is a natural fiber rope made from fibers of the abaca plant. The primary growing location for these plants is in the Philippines and hence, the name Manila.
For many years, manila has been a popular rope choice because it has low stretch and is resistant to abrasion. The downside to manila rope is its poor chemical resistance and tendency to rot if not properly cared for.
Manila rope should not be confused with sisal rope. Both are natural fiber ropes and similar in color. However, manila is stronger, is darker in color and is treated during the manufacturing process with a preservative type oil. The various manufacturers in the Philippines use different preservative oils.
