NIKA-MultiForce

NIKA - Multi Force

NIKA-MultiForce ropes are a special construction of Double Braided ropes ideal for winchlines. They are composed of a 12strand high strength Nikasteel® core and a tightly overbraided 32/64 Multifilament Polypropylene cover.

In NIKA-MultiForce ropes the overbraided jacket has a double function: It is tightly braided ensuring maximum endurance against abrasion while the high elongational properties of the multifilament fibers enables them to contribute to the axial strength of the rope. Therefore, the rope exhibits both high strength and high resistance to abrasion.

APPLICATIONS:  Mooring - Towing - Anchoring

NIKA-MultiForce ropes are constructed with a thoroughly monitored production process, standard for every double braided produced by Katradis Marine Ropes Industry, which guarantees their quality and performance. They exhibit excellent resistance against abrasion, UV sunlight and good resistance to cyclic loading.

NIKA-MultiForce ropes are ideal for use in winchlines, they are user friendly, torque free and floating.

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