In shipping two typical rope types will be ordered:


  • 8 strand Mixed rope
  • 12 strand HMPE rope (HMPE = High Molecular Polyethylene sometimes called UHMWPE = Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene


8 Strand mixed is a rope that does the job - these ropes have a larger diameter but are less flexible to work with.


12 Strand HMPE is a much stronger rope even if the diameter is less - these ropes also keep the residual strength longer than a Mixed Rope type and can be seen as a safer rope.


Example: A 62mm Mixed rope has an MBL @ 840kN while a 32mm HMPE an MBL @ 895kN


The Mixed Rope is usually ordered for Tankers and Bulkers with fewer port calls while the HMPE is favored by Container and Passenger vessels due to its easy manhandling.
