Flat Nylon: Flat nylon is best used for higher abrasion applications. It is not recommended to use in or around water continuously because it absorbs water quickly, causing rot & mildew. It can also stretch up to 2% of its length when wet (submerged in water multiple times). However, if you need a heavy duty strap for a "beefy" job, this webbing is for you. Nylon has a thickness of .070 - .075 of an inch and its breaking strength on flat nylon ranges from 2275lbs. - 5500lbs.
Heavyweight Polypropylene: Heavyweight polypropylene is great to use in the outdoors. It has excellent UV protection, and it doesn't absorb water quickly giving it resistance to rot & mildew. The abrasion resistance isn't very high, so we recommend not using this material against rough edges. This webbing is perfect for medium duty applications. It has a thickness of .060 of an inch and its breaking strength ranges from 675lbs. - 1800lbs.
Lightweight Polypropylene:Lightweight polypropylene is also great for the outdoors. It differs from the heavyweight by breaking strength and stiffness. Other than that, it has all the same specs as the heavyweight polypro. Lightweight is .040 of an inch thick and its breaking strength ranges from 375lbs. - 750lbs.
Polyester:Polyester webbing has the same great
qualities as Flat Nylon webbing, with a couple extra bonuses! Polyester
is great for indoors or outdoors due to its high abrasion resistance,
excellent UV protection, high breaking strength, and resistance to rot
& mildew. Along with Flat Nylon, Polyester has the wonderful smooth
feel to it that makes contact with skin comfortable. It's breaking
strength ranges from 2500lbs. - 7000lbs., so it will work for your
heaviest of jobs.
