NIKA-Dual Force Multifil

Nika-DualForce Multifil ropes

NIKA-DualForce Multifil ropes are Double Braided ropes made from 100% High Tenacity Multifilament Polypropylene. The 50%-50% core-cover weight relation ensures maximum performance from both the 24-strands braided core and the 32x2-strands braided cover.

High Tenacity Multifilament Polypropylene fibers exhibit high elastic properties, which makes these ropes fit for applications where high shock absorption properties and high elasticity are required.

APPLICATIONS:  Mooring - Towing - Anchoring

NIKA-DualForce Multifil ropes are constructed with a thoroughly monitored production process which guarantees their quality and performance. They exhibit very good resistance against abrasion, UV sunlight and good resistance to cyclic loading. NIKA-DualForce Multifil ropes are user friendly, torque free and floating.

They are produced and quality controlled in accordance to the latest standards (ISO 9554 & ISO 2307)
