NIKA-Cord® 3-4 Strand Rope

3-4 strand Nikacord Mooring Rope

NIKA-Cord® Ropes are a "MELT MIXTURE" * of first quality European virgin raw materials Polypropylene, High Density Polyethylene (Min 15% - Max 50%) **, UV stabilizer and other improving elements (5%), bright white colour with red-green stripes.

They are made of round continuous filaments (MONOFILAMENT type) which are produced with the laborious double twisting process "ROPE IN ROPE" type for maximum abrasion resistance, with high tenacity yarns, almost like Nylon's.

Their unique rope construction of double twisted yarns, that have the same electronically controlled thickness, weight and strength throughout the whole cross section of the strand/rope, gives the well known amazing operational results, like shock and dynamic load absorption, minimization of external and internal abrasion and extended useful (thus reliable) service life.
