Plain Mixed NIKA-Steel® 12-24 Strand Rope

12-24 Strand Plain Mixed NIKASTEEL Mooring Ropes

Single Braided 12/24-strand ropes are constructed by mixed twisting NIKA-STEEL® and Polyester yarns in the outer layer of the strand (MIXED NIKA-STEEL®). 

Their layout is fit for applications requiring abrasion resistance properties.

They have excellent resistance to abrasion (Polyester cover yarns) wet/dry, sunlight (as Polypropylene yarns are more than adequately protected by the external Polyester yarns) & chemicals, good resistance to cyclic loading and maintain the same performance wet/dry.

They are user friendly, rotation resistant and easy to splice. Polyester fibers possess the best endurance among all the high tenacity fibers.
