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

Improved Mixed NIKA-Steel® ropes’ layout is ideal for applications requiring floating properties and resistance to abrasion without compromising the axial strength.

LR Type Approval Certification

They have very good resistance to sunlight & chemicals, good resistance to cyclic loading and their efficiency remains the same both in wet and dry conditions. Best-selling Improved Mixed NIKA-Steel® is definitely an excellent multi-purpose rope.

Improved Mixed NIKA-Steel® 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.
