NIKA-FLEX 8 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 8 yarns stronger and more abrasion resistant than conventional mixed yarns.
All of the strands are composed of mixed NIKA-FLEX 8 yarns and the resulting Polyester percentage is 50% – 50% w/w through the whole strand’s cross-section.
APPLICATIONS: MOORING – ANCHORING – TAILS
NIKA-FLEX 8 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 8 ropes exhibit excellent resistance to sunlight & chemicals.
NIKA-FLEX 8 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.
