NIKA-DoubleBraided 100% Nylon Rope

Double Braided 100% Nylon Mooring Rope

NIKA-DoubleBraided Nylon Ropes are 100% Nylon Ropes constructed by braiding a 32/64 -strand sheath (or jacket) over a braided core. Their construction is fit for applications requiring high breaking load and shock absorption properties.

They have good resistance to abrasion, sunlight, cyclic loading and chemicals.

They are produced according to international standards such as EN ISO 10554, MIL-DTL-24050, CI 1310, and BS 7648.

APPLICATIONS: MOORING - ANCHORING - TOWING - TAILS

They are user friendly, rotation resistant and easy to splice. Their larger contact area reduces the fatigue on the rope when it spools and when passing through fairleads.

These ropes comply to the latest regulations and recommendations of OCIMF for the safe mooring of tankers.
