Knotless netting is 100% polyester, a material that reduces the weight and abrasiveness of netting without knots. The lightweight material can be used for barriers, sport nets, and debris nets. It is available in various weights, from tens of grams to three tons, and is available from leading manufacturers. Dyneema, Technora, and Barry D.E.W. Line are trademarks of DSM and Teijin Ltd.

NITTO’s knotless netting is made from 100% polyester
Knotless netting has many advantages over standard netting. It is a durable material that resists UV damage and absorbs less water than its nylon counterpart. Knotless netting is available in various sizes, such as B-KN20 for young shrimp and B-KN24 for young oysters. NITTO sells this netting by liner yard, which is recommended for large-scale production.
Compared to traditional knotted netting, knotless strands can reduce friction and bruising, which can be harmful to fish. Also, knotless netting can save up to 30% of raw material because it uses a single strand instead of several. It is lighter, which means it can be used in smaller systems without sacrificing strength. In addition, it is also cheaper than knotted netting.
Among the advantages of NITTO’s knotless nett, the material is made of 100% polyester. It is also durable, as its fibers are spun tightly together. As a result, it is less likely to be damaged during heavy use. This is the primary advantage of knotless netting. It is not recommended for heavy-duty baseball or other environments with high-impact forces.
It is woven to create a form without knots
If you’ve ever wondered how to create a basket, knotless netting is a great option. This technique involves looped stitches instead of knots. And because there are no knots, the entire textile is visible on both sides. Knotless netting has many uses. It can be used to create bags and baskets, cover beach stones, and even make mittens.
Traditional netting panels have bars and knots. Knotless netting is woven without knots and uses the same basic netting pattern as net-6 nylon netting. In addition, it has the same solidity ratio. To determine mesh size, we measured the twine diameter, bar length, and other dimensions using digital calipers. Weaving knotless netting improves the quality of the netting and reduces the risk of collapse in extreme conditions.
A Knotless netting demonstration will be conducted by Mary Ellen Clement at the Beaufort Historical Association Welcome Center at 130 Turner Street. Since this technology has become popular, there are more ways to use it. Here are some of the most popular uses for knotless netting:
It is less abrasive than knotted netting
While knotted HD polyethylene netting is lightweight and easy to handle, no-knot netting is softer on the hands and is less abrasive than knots. This kind of netting is made of interwoven polypropylene monofilaments and has a fabric-like texture. Both have similar benefits, but each has distinct advantages. Let’s examine them one by one.
The No-Knot netting has a lower abrasion resistance than knotted netting. However, it can fray in areas where the netting rubs against a surface. However, it is just as strong as knotted netting, which means that it’s an excellent choice for high-traffic areas. This type of netting also offers the same 10-year warranty.
Polyethylene has a bad reputation over the years because of its poor durability. But it’s actually a superior netting material for a variety of sports. Its abrasion and UV-resistance make it an excellent choice for sports netting. In addition to being lightweight, it’s also less abrasive and has a long life span.
Mesh size: The netting’s mesh size is important, as smaller mesh sizes allow fewer things to pass through, while larger ones allow larger items to pass through. Netting with a larger mesh size is more affordable. You can calculate mesh size by measuring the square mesh length from knot to knot. If you’re unsure of the size you need, you can use the square mesh size as your guide.
It reduces weight
The knots in conventional netting contribute a substantial amount to overall weight, which is why knotless tangles are more lightweight. Netting is usually sold by weight, and knotted twine is heavier than knotless tangles. This means that knotless tangles would reduce weight in the same volume, but the results would be slightly different. This article explores the benefits of knotless tangles.
In addition to being lighter, knotless netting is more durable. It has lower water resistance and friction, which reduces drag and increases speed. Knotless tangles also feature improved fishability, meaning less time spent retrieving fish. Knotless tangles are also easier to transport, and weigh only 100 lbs per bale. This is a huge benefit when compared to knotted tangles.
A new design of NITTO knotless netting greatly reduces the weight and bulkiness of traditional tangles. Aside from being less expensive, knotless tangles also reduce the risk of sea currents and damage to fishing equipment. Moreover, knotless nettings can be expanded in size without the need for replacing the net or the fishing equipment. These lighter tangle-free nets are also safer to handle.
In the study, knotless tangles are more durable than knotted tangles, and can also be used for other applications. In addition to reducing weight, knotless tangles reduce angling efforts by 30 percent. The study did not detect a dramatic difference in catch weights or length frequencies. However, the results did reveal a trend towards releasing plaice under the legal size limit. Further studies are needed to quantify this trend.
It eliminates distortion
In this paper, we demonstrate that the drag coefficients of knotless nylon netting are significantly lower than those of traditional PE netting and are inversely related to the solidity ratio. These factors affect the sinking performance and the lift coefficient, respectively. Moreover, knotless netting increases the solidity ratio and increases the hydrodynamic resistance. In contrast, knotted netting increases the distortion and decreases the lift coefficient.
A common problem with conventional netting is the knots, which can become weak over time. The mesh can become distorted when the twine is repeatedly hauled across a rusty ship’s deck. The worn-out knots will likely contribute to the distortion of the mesh. Knotless netting, however, uses a four-ply construction that means that its mesh is nearly 100% intact even after repeated hauling.
The knots in conventional netting represent a large part of the overall weight, which is why knotless netting requires more sophisticated production machinery. Additionally, knots account for a significant portion of the overall weight of netting, which makes it much heavier than conventional twine. As a result, knotless netting allows the use of finer twines, which increases the breaking strength.
It eliminates slippage
Knotless netting has many advantages over conventional tangled tangles, among which is the elimination of slippage. Knots are the weak point of conventional netting, as they significantly reduce the breaking strength of the netting. This weak point also contributes to abrasion and mesh slippage issues. In addition to eliminating slippage, knotless netting also allows for the use of thinner twines.
Knots are a major source of slippage, as they are easily pulled through a net repeatedly. Worn knots also compromise the netting’s mesh, resulting in a poor fishing experience. UltraCross netting uses four-ply construction, allowing the use of less twine and reducing the bulk. Knotless netting also improves fishability.
The use of knotless netting has been a major success in Iceland, where it has been used in trawls fishing herring, capelin, blue whiting, and redfish codends. It has been used on several trawlers for seven seasons. The trawler Venus, for example, has used the same knotless netting for seven seasons with no slippage.
Ultra Cross Knotless Netting is the strongest material available for square mesh and size selectivity. In addition, it is also highly resistant to distortion and abrasion. Knotless netting is preferred by Japanese purse seiners as it requires less deck space and has a higher level of stability. Its four-strand braid construction eliminates slippage and strand-intersection distortion, enabling for maximum durability.
