NIKA-Force 8 Strand Rope

8 Strand Nikaforce Mooring Rope

NIKA-Force 8-Strand Ropes are constructed using the well-known NIKA-Steel® fibers. The NIKA-Steel® fibers are a special melt mixture of high quality European raw materials (Polypropylene, High Density Polyethylene, UV stabilizer and other improving elements). NIKA-Steel® fibers are produced with a unique recipe (materials’ mixing ratios – stretching ratios – stretching temperatures) and they exhibit much higher tenacity and abrasion resistance than most conventional monofilament and flat Polypropylene and Polyolefin fibers.

APPLICATIONS: MOORING - ANCHORING - MESSENGER LINES - TOWING

Katradis Marine Ropes SA technical staff combined the best raw materials and through a carefully designed & efficient production process managed to present a reliable alternative to NIKA-Cord® ropes. NIKA-Force ropes exhibit high breaking strengths and very good resistance to abrasion (due to the highly abrasion resistant NIKA-Steel® yarns).

NIKA-Force ropes are UV stabilized (160KLY – suitable for Florida-USA & DUBAI-UAE sunshine conditions). NIKA-Force ropes are constructed according to ISO 10572 and they comply with the latest regulations and recommendations of OCIMF for the safe mooring of tankers.
