NIKA-Nylon 8 Strand Rope
NIKA-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.
Specific gravity: 1.14
Melting point: 218 °C
Elongation at breaking: 25-30%
Fiber water absorption: 3-5%
Chemical resistance to ALKALI: VERY GOOD
Chemical resistance to ORGANIC SOLVENT: EXCELLENT
Chemical resistance to ACID: EXCELLENT. Strength loss in NaOH and H2SO4 in high concentration and temperature
