NIKA-Nylon 8 Strand Rope

8 Strand 100% Nylon Polyamide Mooring RopeNIKA-Nylon 8-strand ropes are 100% Nylon (Polyamide) ropes fit for applications requiring elasticity and shock absorption properties.

They have very good resistance to abrasion, sunlight, chemicals and cyclic loading.

When wet they lose approximately 10% of their dry breaking strength which is recovered once dry again.

APPLICATIONS: MOORING - ANCHORING - TOW LINES - MOORING TAILS

They are produced according to international standards such as DIN EN ISO1140, CI 1303, MIL-R-24337 etc. They are user friendly, rotation resistant and easy to splice.

LR Type Approval Certification
