NIKA-Flex® 12/24-strand ropes are mixed Polyolefin & Polyester ropes and are constructed according to EN ISO 10556. High tenacity Polyester fibers cover NIKA-Steel® fibers through an engineered twisting process. The selected twist factor & fiber tensioning make the NIKA-Flex® yarns stronger and more abrasion resistant than conventional mixed yarns. All of the strands are composed of mixed NIKA-Flex® yarns and the resulting Polyester percentage is 50% – 50% w/w though the whole strand’s cross-section.
APPLICATIONS: MOORING – ANCHORING – TAILS
NIKA-Flex® ropes are ideal for demanding applications. The Ultra high abrasion resistance, the very high breaking strength and the excellent endurance to cyclic loading make up for the lack of buoyancy. Additionally, NIKA-Flex® ropes exhibit excellent resistance to sunlight & chemicals.
NIKA-Flex® ropes are user friendly, rotation resistant and easy to splice. They comply with the latest regulations and recommendations of OCIMF for the safe mooring of tankers.
