Nylon Cover / Nylon Core Rope has very little degradation from UV and can be used outside over long term if inspected regularly
Good resistance to most solvents, however Nylon will degrade with strong oxidizing agents, mineral acids and 90% formic acid. May temporarily discolor when exposed to high levels of Carbon dioxide.
Melting point of 460°F, progressive strength loss above 300°F
Nylon Cover / Nylon Core Rope has good resistance to the passage of electrical current. However, dirt, surface contaminants, water entrapment and the like can significantly affect dielectric properties. Extreme caution should be exercised any time a rope is in the proximity of live circuits.
Recommended Did ratio is 8:1
No blanket working load recommendation can be made because it depends on the application and conditions of use, especially potential danger to personnel. It is recommended that the user establish working loads and safety factors based on professional and experienced assessments of risks. The working load is a guideline for the use of a rope in good condition for non-critical applications and should be reduced where life, limb, or valuable property is involved, or for exceptional service such as shock, sustained loading, severe vibration, etc. The Cordage Institute specifies that the Safe Working Load of a rope shall be determined by dividing the Minimum Tensile Strength by the Safety Factor. Safety factors range from 5 to 12 for non-critical uses, 15 for lifelines.
SWL= Minimum Break Strength / Safety Factor
