VECTRAN™ fibers for high-performance mooring ropes

Kuraray Case Study VECTRAN™

Durable ropes for heavy ships

Mooring ropes and towing lines for large liquified natural gas (LNG) vessels and tankers have to withstand enormous tensile loads, heat, abrasion and aggressive salt water throughout their entire service life. 

Using high-performance VECTRAN™ LCP fibers from Kuraray, Katradis, a leading manufacturer of marine ropes, has developed a new marine rope that is lightweight, flexible, and far more durable than the solutions previously available.
