Spectra-Siri® S-12 Rope

A world class strong and durable 12strand High Modulus rope made of Honeywell’s powerful HC Spectra® fibers. Manufactured in light blue color, Spectra-Siri S-12 stands for the high level of operation efficiency and quality performance.

APPLICATIONS: MOORING / TOW LINES / STS OPERATIONS (to be used with synthetic tails) / ANCHORING / OFFSHORE / AQUACULTURE / FISHING / YACHTING

Spectra-Siri® S-12 ropes are 12 strand High Modulus ropes, combining the excellent properties of Honeywell’s HC Spectra® fibers and an insuperable manufacturing process.

Spectra-Siri® S-12 ropes exhibit unmatched strength; they are 8 times stronger than steel ropes and 3 times stronger than polyester (on a weight by weight comparison). Their lightweight characteristics make Spectra-Siri S-12 ropes ideal for the critical operations of the heavy shipping industry. The application of the special NikaThane-S coating on the HC Spectra® fibers and the superior in-house heat-setting process provides a high quality robust rope construction with higher strength efficiency and excellent abrasion resistance. Spectra-Siri® S-12 ropes exhibit excellent resistance to UV sunlight and weathering degradation and thus an extended service life (more than 7 years).

Spectra-Siri® S-12 ropes are an excellent wire-rope alternative and offer several benefits:

  1. Most cost-effective ropes to purchase due to lower labor requirements in operations and decreased mooring & towing operating times
  2. High strength-to-size ratio of the HC Spectra® fibers, allowing for lighter weight ropes that are easier to handle.
  3. No corrosion, superior chemical resistance, increased abrasion resistance and excellent flex fatigue
  4. 2-3 times longer service life (compared to wire ropes)
  5. Negligible maintenance costs

Spectra-Siri® S-12 ropes are produced according to ISO 10325-2009 and they comply with OCIMF's latest regulations & recommendations for the safe mooring of the tanker-LNG-LPG vessels.
