NIKA-DualForce Nylon Rope

Nika-DualForce Nylon Ropes

NIKA-DualForce Nylon ropes are Double Braided ropes specially engineered to provide maximum performance and ease of handling. They are made from High Tenacity Nylon (Polyamide) yarns carefully balanced in a unique Double Braided construction. The 32x2 strands cover is over-braided over the twill braided core. The 50% weight percentage of each element ensures maximum performance from both core and cover resulting in higher breaking Load and lower rope diameter.

APPLICATIONS:  Mooring - Towing - Anchoring

NIKA-DualForce Nylon ropes are user friendly and torque free (rotation resistant). They have very good resistance against abrasion, UV sunlight and they exhibit excellent endurance in cyclic loading. Their high elongation properties make them ideal for applications where high line elasticity and shock absorption properties are required.

They are produced and quality controlled in accordance to the latest standards (ISO 10554, ISO 9554 & ISO 2307)
