Plain Mixed NIKA-Steel® 8 Strand Rope
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
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.
