Tech-Siri® S-12 DB Rope
Tech-Siri® S-12 DB Ropes are special Aramid ropes made using high quality fibers that offer zero creep and great heat resistant properties. Tech-Siri® S-12 DB ropes are the finest aramid ropes in the market and are developed specifically for demanding applications.
APPLICATIONS: MOORING / TOW LINES / STS OPERATIONS (to be used with synthetic tails) / ANCHORING / OFFSHORE / YACHTING
Tech-Siri® S-12 DB ropes consist of a 12 strand High Modulus Aramid core over-braided with a highly abrasion resistant polyester jacket. They combine the excellent properties of Aramid fibers with an insuperable manufacturing process.
The use of the special coating application on the aramid fibers and the superior in-house heat-stretching process provides a high quality robust rope construction with higher strength efficiency and excellent abrasion resistance. The jacket protects the High Modulus load bearing core against abrasion and UV/environmental degradation and thus prolongs its service life.
Additionally, Tech-Siri® S-12 DB ropes are also available with the special application of Prisma® Shield Technology (under the brand of TechPrisma-Siri® S-12 DB)
Tech-Siri® S-12 DB ropes are an excellent wire-rope and HMPE alternative and offer several benefits:
- Most cost-effective ropes to purchase due to lower labor requirements in operations and decreased mooring & towing operating times (compared to wire ropes)
- High strength-to-size ratio, allowing for lighter weight ropes that are easier to handle (compared to wire ropes).
- Zero creep
- Highly heat resistant
- 2-3 times longer service life (compared to wire ropes)
Tech-Siri® S-12 DB ropes are produced according to the latest international standards and they comply with OCIMF's latest regulations & recommendations for the safe mooring of the tanker-LNG-LPG vessels.
