NIKA-STEEL COVERED combination ropes are constructed by braiding a 32/64 strand Polyester sheath (or jacket) over a hollow 24-braided NIKA-STEEL® core rope.

Their construction is fit for applications requiring abrasion resistance properties. They have excellent resistance to abrasion (Polyester jacket) wet/dry, sunlight & chemicals, good resistance to cyclic loading, and maintain the same performance wet/dry. 

APPLICATIONS: MOORING – ANCHORING – TAILS

They are user friendly, rotation resistant and easy to splice. Their larger contact area reduces the fatigue on the rope when it spools and when passing through fairleads. Polyester fibers possess the best endurance among all the high tenacity fibers. These ropes comply to the latest regulations and recommendations of OCIMF for the safe mooring of tankers.

These ropes are produced in 2 executions:

NIKA-STEEL® : MELT MIXTURE OF PRIME POLYPROPYLENE, 15-50% HDPE, UV & SPECIAL ADDITIVES (as per EN ISO 10572)
