NIKA-DualForce Polyester Rope

Nika-DualForce Polyester Ropes

NIKA-DualForce Polyester ropes are Double Braided ropes specially engineered to provide maximum performance and ease of handling. They are made 100% from High Tenacity Polyester fibers 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 Polyester ropes are user friendly and torque free (rotation resistant). They have excellent resistance against abrasion, UV sunlight and they exhibit excellent endurance in cyclic loading. They retain their strength when wet.

They are produced and quality controlled in accordance to the latest standards (ISO 10547, ISO 9554 & ISO 2307)
