A world class strong and durable 12strand High Modulus rope made of Honeywell’s Spectra® S1000 fibers. Manufactured in light blue color, NIKA-Spectra® S1000 stands for the high level of operation efficiency and quality performance.
APPLICATIONS: Mooring (to be used with Synthetic tails) – Tow Lines - STS operations (to be used with Synthetic tails) – Anchoring
NIKA-Spectra® S1000 ropes are 12 strand High Modulus ropes. They combine the excellent properties of Honeywell's Spectra® S1000 fibers and an insuperable manufacturing process. NIKA-Spectra® S1000 ropes exhibit unmatched strength; they are 8 times stronger than steel ropes, 3 times stronger than polyester and 40% stronger than aramid (on a weight by weight comparison). Their lightweight characteristics make Nika-Spectra S1000 ropes ideal for the critical operations of the heavy shipping industry.
The use of an excellent fiber such as Honeywell’s Spectra® S1000 in a much-sophisticated production process result in a top performance rope. The use of the special NikaThane-S coating application on the S1000 fibers and the superior in-house heat-setting process provides a high quality robust rope construction with higher strength efficiency and excellent abrasion resistance. NIKA-Spectra® S1000 ropes exhibit excellent resistance to UV sunlight and weathering degradation and thus an extended service life (more than 7 years).
NIKA-Spectra® S1000 ropes are an excellent wire-rope alternative and offer several benefits:
- Most cost-effective ropes to purchase due to lower labor requirements in operations and decreased mooring & towing operating times
- High strength-to-size ratio of the S1000 fibers, allowing for lighter weight ropes that are easier to handle.
- No corrosion, superior chemical resistance, increased abrasion resistance and excellent flex fatigue
- 2-3 times longer service life (compared to wire ropes)
- Hydrophobic S1000 fibers, so ropes will not absorb moisture or deteriorate in water
- Negligible maintenance costs
NIKA-Spectra® S1000 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 and LPG vessels.
