NIKA-Nylon 3-4 Strand Rope

3-4 Strands 100% Nylon Polyamide Mooring Ropes

NIKA-Nylon 3-4 strand ropes are 100% Nylon (Polyamide) ropes fit for applications requiring elasticity and shock absorption properties.

They have very good resistance to abrasion, sunlight, chemicals and cyclic loading.

When wet they lose approximately 10% of their dry breaking strength which is recovered once dry again.

They are produced according to international standards such as DIN EN ISO 1140, MIL-R-17343, etc. They are user friendly, flexible and easy to splice.

APPLICATIONS: MOORING - ANCHORING - MESSENGER LINES

Specific gravity: 1.14
Melting point: 218 °C
Elongation at breaking: 25-30%
Fiber water absorption: 3-5%
Chemical resistance to ALKALI:  VERY GOOD
Chemical resistance to ORGANIC SOLVENT:  EXCELLENT
Chemical resistance to ACID:  EXCELLENT. Strength loss in NaOH and H2SO4 in high concentration and temperature
