NIKA-DoubleBraided 100% Polyester Rope

Double Braided 100% Polyester Mooring Rope

NIKA-DoubleBraided Polyester Ropes are 100% Polyester 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 low stretch properties.

They have excellent resistance to abrasion wet/dry, cyclic loading, sunlight, chemicals and same performance wet/dry.

APPLICATIONS: MOORING - ANCHORING - TOWING - TAILS

They are produced according to international standards such as EN ISO 10547, MIL-R-24677, CI 1311, BS 7648.

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.

Polyester fibers possess the best endurance among all the high tenacity fibers. These ropes comply to the latest regulations and recommendations of OCIMF for the safe mooring of tankers.
