Spectra®-Siri® S-12 DB are High Modulus / High Performance ropes with long term fatigue life properties and outstanding quality performance ideal for the critical operations of the shipping industry. They consist of a 12-strand load bearing core (HC Spectra® fibers) and a protective braided jacket. This rope construction is firm, round and torque free.
APPLICATIONS: Mooring (to be used with Synthetic tails) – Anchoring – Tow Lines (to be used with synthetic tails) – STS operations / OFFSHORE / YACHTING
There are three options for the jacket:
100% Polyester jacket: A reliable protective jacket that offers very good abrasion resistance and gripping properties when used on winches, capstans and other types of hardware.
Mixed jacket (UHMWPE/PES): A special blend of UHMWPE and polyester fibers form a highly abrasion protective jacket, that combines the gripping efficiency of Polyester and the ultra-high abrasion resistance of UHMWPE fibers.
UHMWPE jacket: A High Modulus jacket that provides maximum abrasion resistance prolonging significantly the rope’s service life.
Spectra®-Siri® S-12 DB ropes are 12 strand High Modulus ropes, combining the excellent properties of Honeywell’s HC Spectra® fibers and an insuperable manufacturing process. The use of the special NikaThane-J coating application 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 DB ropes exhibit excellent resistance to UV sunlight and weathering degradation and thus an extended service life (more than 7 years).
Spectra®-Siri® S-12 DB ropes are an excellent wire-rope alternative and offer several benefits:
Spectra®-Siri® S-12 DB 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.
