NIKA-DualForce Mixed Rope
NIKA-DualForce Mixed ropes are Double Braided ropes specially engineered to provide maximum performance and ease of handling. They are composed of NIKA-Steel® fibers and HT 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
They are user friendly and torque free (rotation resistant). They exhibit excellent resistance against abrasion, UV sunlight and very good endurance in cyclic loading. They retain their strength when wet. NIKA-DualForce ropes are ideal for applications requiring floating properties.
They are produced and quality controlled in accordance to the latest standards (ISO 9554 & ISO 2307).
