NIKA-Cord® 8 Strand Rope

8 Strand Nika Cord Mooring Ropes

The flagship rope of Katradis Marine Industry!

NIKA-Cord® 8-Strand Ropes are constructed using double twisted yarns of NIKA-Steel® fibers. The NIKA-Steel® fibers are a special melt mixture of high quality European raw materials (Polypropylene, High Density Polyethylene, UV stabilizer and other improving elements). NIKA-Steel® fibers are produced with a unique recipe (material percentages – stretching ratios – stretching temperatures) and they exhibit much higher tenacity and abrasion resistance than most conventional monofilament and flat Polypropylene and Polyolefin fibers.

APPLICATIONS: MOORING - ANCHORING - MESSENGER LINES - TOWING

NIKA-Force 8 Strand Rope

8 Strand Nikaforce Mooring Rope

NIKA-Force 8-Strand Ropes are constructed using the well-known NIKA-Steel® fibers. The NIKA-Steel® fibers are a special melt mixture of high quality European raw materials (Polypropylene, High Density Polyethylene, UV stabilizer and other improving elements). NIKA-Steel® fibers are produced with a unique recipe (materials’ mixing ratios – stretching ratios – stretching temperatures) and they exhibit much higher tenacity and abrasion resistance than most conventional monofilament and flat Polypropylene and Polyolefin fibers.

Improved Mixed NIKA-Steel® 8 Strand Rope

The most reliable all-purpose rope!

8 Strand Improved Mixed Nikasteel Mooring Rope

Improved Mixed NIKA-Steel® 8-strand (4x2) ropes are constructed using specially twisted yarns of NIKA-Steel® fibers with High Tenacity Polyester fibers (in a 60% - 40% w/w combination respectively) in the outer layers of the strand. Each strand is composed of mixed NIKA-Steel® / HT Polyester yarns in the outer layers and NIKA-Steel® yarns in the core layer.

Their mechanically balanced structure, accordant to EN ISO 10556, protects the strands’ outer layers against abrasion while achieving high breaking strengths.

APPLICATIONS: MOORING – ANCHORING – TAILS

Ultra Mixed NIKA-Steel® 8 Strand Rope

8 Strand Ultra Mixed Nikasteel Mooring Rope

Ultra Mixed NIKA-Steel® 8-strand (4x2) ropes are constructed using specially twisted yarns of NIKA-Steel® fibers with High Tenacity Polyester fibers (in a 50% - 50% w/w combination respectively) in the outer layers of the strand. Each strand is composed of mixed NIKA-Steel® / HT Polyester yarns in the outer layers and NIKA-Steel® yarns in the core layer.

Their mechanically balanced structure, accordant to EN ISO 10556, protects the strands’ outer layers against abrasion while achieving extra high breaking strengths.

Plain Mixed NIKA-Steel® 8 Strand Rope

8 Strand Plain Mixed Nikasteel Mooring Ropes

Single Braided 8-strand (4x2) 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 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

NIKA-Flex® 8 Strand Rope

8 Strand Nikaflex Mooring Rope

Engineered for Maximum Performance!

NIKA-Flex® 8-strand (4x2) ropes are mixed Polyolefin & Polyester ropes. High tenacity Polyester fibers cover NIKA-Steel® fibers through an engineered twisting process. The selected twist factor & fiber tensioning make the NIKA-Flex® yarns stronger and more abrasion resistant than conventional mixed yarns.

All of the strands are composed of mixed NIKA-Flex® yarns and the resulting Polyester percentage is 50% - 50% w/w though the whole strand’s cross-section.

APPLICATIONS: MOORING – ANCHORING – TAILS

NIKA-Nylon 8 Strand Rope

8 Strand 100% Nylon Polyamide Mooring RopeNIKA-Nylon 8-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.

APPLICATIONS: MOORING - ANCHORING - TOW LINES - MOORING TAILS

NIKA-Polyester 8 Strand Rope

8 Strand 100% Polyester Mooring Rope

NIKA-Polyester 8-strand ropes are 100% Polyester ropes fit for applications requiring abrasion resistance, moderate elasticity and shock absorption properties.

They have excellent resistance to abrasion, sunlight, chemicals and cyclic loading wet/dry.

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