Treatment of hemp rope
The raw materials of hemp rope generally include jute, flax, sisal, etc., which can be woven from a variety of plant fibers and have a wide range of uses. Therefore, many industrial ropes have many impurities and are difficult to remove odors, which are not suitable. Hemp rope has different numbers of strands and yarn counts. Under the same diameter, the more the number of strands, the thinner the diameter of each strand. Generally, three-strand hemp rope is commonly used. The number of roots per share is also different. The larger the number, the thinner the original fiber, which generally represents the better material. In addition, the longer the fiber, the tougher it represents, which means that it is less likely to break and shed hair. The yarn count is the length of the fiber under a fixed quality. The larger the number, the thinner the fiber.
The hemp rope is not easy to deform, so it can be applied to the occasions that require a lot of force on the knot such as hanging fu. The disadvantage is that the surface is rough, easy to shed hair, and requires regular maintenance. The finished hemp rope has many manufacturing processes and is expensive.
When buying hemp rope, it is usually a whole coil, and it needs to be cut according to the required length. Pay attention to the length of each rope that is enough for the rope end treatment (usually about 10cm). The rope head is simply tied with a flat knot. This step is to avoid loosening of the rope head during subsequent handling of the rope body. Because then spread the rope or hang it in a ventilated place for several hours to several days until the smell dissipates.
