Twine

Twine is a thin, light-duty type of rope made from natural or synthetic fibers that are twisted or braided together. Twine is frequently used for lowering and retrieving light-weight samplers or equipment from groundwater monitoring wells and is usually discarded after each use.

EON stocks a large inventory of twine in various materials, sizes and lengths. Though not frequently thought about, material selection and type of braid can make a difference in ease of use or reliability. Most field personnel use Nylon Braided twine.

Materials:

  • Nylon: Synthetic material offering good strength and very good abrasion resistance. Resists hydrocarbon.
  • Polyester: Synthetic fiber with good strength, long life, and good resistance to acids and hydrocarbons. Mostly used for monofilament line or rope.
  • Polypropylene: Synthetic fiber with moderate strength. Resists acids, alkalis, and hydrocarbons and it floats. Mostly used for monofilament line or rope.

Configurations:

  • Twisted: Fibers are turned and lock stitched together. Twisted twine holds knots well but tends to unravel. Moderate strength. Rotates under load.
  • Braided: Strands are braided over and under each other in a pattern. This significantly reduces unraveling at the ends and rotation under load.
  • Monofilament: is produced by extruding a single strand of synthetic material. Most people are familiar with monofilament line used for fishing. Monofilament is strong but susceptible to stretching under load if the as the diameter gets smaller. It can be slippery and difficult to knot.
