NIKA-Performance 12-24 Strand Rope

12-24 Strand NikaStar Mooring Rope

NIKA-Performance Mixed 12/24-strand ropes is the latest development of Katradis Marine Ropes SA in the field of conventional ropes. NIKA-Performance ropes are constructed using a completely different twisting concept that enhances the breaking strength and the cyclic loading performance.

APPLICATIONS:  Mooring – Anchoring – Tow Lines

In the rope's structure High Tenacity Polyester Fibers are combined with NIKA-Steel® fibers during a specially designed twisting & stranding process. The resulting rope is stronger and more enduring in cyclic loading than conventional mixed ropes. NIKA-Performance ropes' balanced structure is accordant to EN ISO 10556 specifications.

NIKA-Performance Mixed ropes' layout is ideal for applications requiring floating properties and resistance to abrasion without compromising the axial strength. They have very good resistance to sunlight & chemicals, very good resistance to cyclic loading and their efficiency remains the same both in wet and dry conditions.

NIKA-Performance Mixed ropes are produced according to international standards such as EN ISO 10556. They are user friendly, rotation resistant and easy to splice. They comply with the latest regulations and recommendations of OCIMF for the safe mooring of tankers.
