Improved Mixed NIKA-Steel® 8 Strand Rope

The most reliable all-purpose rope!

8 Strand Improved Mixed Nikasteel Mooring Rope

Improved Mixed NIKA-Steel® 12/24-strand ropes are constructed according to EN ISO 10556 § 5.2.1. The cover yarns of each strand of fibre ropes are made with polyester fibres covering a polyolefin core and contain a minimum of 40 % by mass of polyester fibre.

Their mechanically balanced structure, protect the strand layers against abrasion while achieving high breaking strengths.

APPLICATIONS: MOORING – ANCHORING – TAILS

Improved Mixed NIKA-Steel® ropes’ layout is ideal for applications requiring floating properties and resistance to abrasion without compromising the axial strength.

LR Type Approval Certification

They have very good resistance to sunlight & chemicals, good resistance to cyclic loading and their efficiency remains the same both in wet and dry conditions. Best-selling Improved Mixed NIKA-Steel® is definitely an excellent multi-purpose rope.

Improved Mixed NIKA-Steel® ropes are produced according to international standards such as EN ISO 10556. They are user friendly, rotation resistant and easy to splice. They comply with the latest regulations and recommendations of OCIMF for the safe mooring of tankers.
