HOW TO MAKE SYNTHETIC WINCH ROPE

Twisting

Twist(spin) the synthetic uhmwpe(known as dyneema)fibers into yarns

Forming

Twist the finished yarns into strands

Laying

12 strands are twisted into rope

Rope Coating

The glue coating makes the fibers fit more tightly, enhances the wear resistance, improve Tensile Strength, provide excellent UV stability offer protection against salt, chemical and Impacts make the rope into various colors

Rope Drying

Ensure complete drying of synthetic rope for winch through indoor drying and outdoor drying.

Eyes Splice

Cut the finished ropes into desired length, then make the eyes splice. You can also add the thimble and hook to it.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Our synthetic winch rope is made in China. As one of the earliest china rope manufacturers, we have focused on producing performance synthetic rope for more than 16 years.

In terms of cost control, wire rope is better than synthetic winch rope. our synthetic rope for winches is made of hi-tech ultra polyethylene fiber, synthetic winch rope is not only considerably safer and significantly ligther than steel winch line. it is now widely used in most major sanctioned off-road and 4×4 motorsports events.  the synthetic winch rope store less energy as than a  steel cable does, meaning it won’t be the projectile if it breaks. Unnecessary injury or death can be avoided.

If you do a lot of 4×4 winching and pulling work and pay close attention to weight, synthetic winch rope may be a better choice because it is lighter and easier to handle than wire rope. It won’t have the sharp burrs that wire rope does, and it doesn’t store as much potential energy under load.

Typically, we believe that your synthetic winch rope will lose about 1.6-2% of the rope’s rated strength each year. According to this rule, a winch rope that has been used for 10 years will lose about 16-20% of its rated capacity, which reminds you that you should replace your synthetic winch rope. Please also note that the service life also depends on how often you use it and whether the usage environment is harsh.

Synthetic winch rope is safe when broken, but it’s also less likely to break. Synthetic winch lines are made to low stretch about 3.5%.

Frankly speaking, the exact warranty time is not easy to give. As you know, the service life has a lot to do with the use environment and operation instruction. If you use it in a good environment and do normal care, synthetic winch rope can be used for 2~3 years or longer.

The first layer of our synthetic winch rope is wrapped with sheath protection to prevent heat soak of the winch body. When re-spooling the winch rope, make sure that this protected part of the rope sits neatly against the drum and has a full layer across the width of the drum.

Yes, Our synthetic rope for winch can be customized in different diameters, lengths and colors. Customized accessories such as hooks, thimbles, and nose end lug are also available.

First of all, our equipment has the function of automatic detection, when there is a process problem there will be an alarm.

Secondly, we have appearance inspection process to check whether the coloring and the appearance of the product meet the standard requirements.

Finally, we will sample each batch of rope for internal break tensile testing or entrust a third-party to test. to eliminate the flow of unqualified products and ensure that only qualified synthetic winch rope can be shipped to customers.

The answer is “YES“. We can provide OEM services and private labeling upon request. We require very low minimum order quantities and can provide you with a cost effective service.

Yes, the recovery bag can be customized with synthetic winch rope ,soft shackle, steel shackle, fairlead, gloves and shovel etc.

It depends on purchase quantity. For example, 100 pieces of 10mm*30m winch rope, it can be finished within 12 days.

Usually we will put the finished ropes into plastic bags and put labels with written size of the winch rope on it, then put them into carton boxes and mark the rope size and quantity on the carton boxes for easy identification. We can also do custom packaging upon request.

We can transport the packed goods by sea, air, land and rail upon request. Usually by air, it takes about 3~5days. By sea, it will take 20~35days, by rail, it takes 30~45days, by land, 5~15days. We will ensure goods can be delivered on time.

Yes, sample rope is available. Contact Us and get it now.
