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.

APPLICATIONS: MOORING - ANCHORING - TAILS

LR Type Approval Certification

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

These ropes comply to the latest regulations and recommendations of OCIMF for the safe mooring of tankers.

Specific gravity: 0.98 (Floating)
Melting point: 165 °C (NIKA-STEEL®) / 265°C (PES)
Elongation at breaking: 15%-18%
Chemical resistance to ALKALI:  VERY GOOD
Chemical resistance to ORGANIC SOLVENT:  VERY GOOD
Chemical resistance to ACID:  EXCELLENT. Strength loss in NaOH and H2SO4 in high concentration and temperature
