Chemicals:
HMPE has good resistance to most minerals, organics, acids, and weak alkalines. HMPE also has excellent resistance to bleaches and other oxidizing agents and to most solvents.

Heat:
HMPE melts at 300F with progressive strength loss above 150F

Dielectrics:
Good resistance to the passage of electric current. However dirt, surface contaminants, water entrapment, and the like can significantly affect dielectric properties. Extreem caution should be exercised any time a rope is in the procimity of live circuits.

Sheaves:
Recommended sheave diameter to rope diameter is 8:1
