Improved Mixed NIKA-Steel® 12-24 Strand Rope

12-24 Strand Improved Mixed Nikasteel Mooring Rope

The most reliable all-purpose rope!

Improved Mixed NIKA-Steel® 12/24-strand ropes are constructed using specially twisted yarns of NIKA-Steel® fibers with High Tenacity Polyester fibers (in a 60% - 40% w/w combination respectively) in the outer layers of the strand. Each strand is composed of mixed NIKA-Steel® / HT Polyester yarns in the outer layers and NIKA-Steel® yarns in the core layer. Their mechanically balanced structure, accordant to EN ISO 10556 specifications, protects the strands’ outer layers against abrasion while achieving high breaking strengths.

Improved Mixed NIKA-Steel® ropes’ layout is ideal for applications requiring floating properties and resistance to abrasion without compromising the axial strength.

LR Type Approval Certification

They have very good resistance to sunlight & chemicals, good resistance to cyclic loading and their efficiency remains the same both in wet and dry conditions. Best-selling Improved Mixed NIKA-Steel® is definitely an excellent multi-purpose rope.

Improved Mixed NIKA-Steel® ropes are produced according to international standards such as EN ISO 10556. They are user friendly, rotation resistant and easy to splice.
