NIKA-Siri S12 ropes are 12 strands High Modulus / High-Performance ropes with excellent properties, ideal for the heavy shipping industry. They are manufactured using the highest quality UHMWPE fibers.

NIKA-Siri S12 ropes are 8 times stronger than steel ropes and 3 times stronger than polyester (on a weight by weight comparison).

APPLICATIONS: MOORING / TOW LINES / STS OPERATIONS (to be used with synthetic tails) / ANCHORING / OFFSHORE / AQUACULTURE / FISHING / YACHTING

The application of NikaThane-S coating and the Linear Structural Preformation (LSP) process improve drastically the structural stability and the strength efficiency of the rope while increasing the rope’s coefficient of friction for better gripping performance when used in winches, capstans, chocks, bitts, etc. When compared to wire ropes, NIKA-Siri S12 ropes are stronger (for the same weight), lighter (making them easy and fast to handle), safer to use and cost-saving (minimum maintenance needs, no greases, faster operating times).

NIKA-Siri S12 ropes are an excellent wire-rope alternative and some of the reasons are the following:

NIKA-Siri S12 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.
