Best Rope for Different Weather Conditions
Polyester rope is a great rope for climates that receive high amounts of sun exposure due to its resistance to high levels of UV rays and temperatures. It is great for desert climates, locations near the equator, and during the summer months. Polyester rope can withstand intense heat and has a melting temperature between 428-degrees and 500-degrees Fahrenheit.
Polypropylene rope is resistant to rot, mildew and UV light making it a great rope for rainy days, coastal locations, or tropical climates. It is also a great rope for tying knots and will stay in place without slipping when wet.
Polyester rope works well in most climates making it a great year-round rope in temperate regions like most of North America, Europe, and northern parts of Asia. It does well in snow due to its ability to hold up to moisture and abrasion. In winter, rope can be used for snow chains, tow rope, and even to remove snow off a roof.

Polypropylene rope is a great multi-purpose rope to use in humid areas like coastal and topical locations. The rope is composed of both polypropylene and nylon making it resistant to rot, mold, and mildew which is a great attribute to have in humid climates. It is also easy to take care of in the sun due to its resistance to UV rays and high melting temperature of 320-degrees Fahrenheit or 160-degrees Celsius.
Polyester rope is great for use in dry desert-like areas like the south-western United States, northern Mexico, northern Africa, central Australia, and Argentina. Polyester has the highest resistance to UV rays of all our ropes and is also abrasion resistant. Both of these factors make it a great rope to have in the desert where it can be sunny and have either very warm or very cold, strong, dry air blowing around the rope.
