NIKA-FORCE 8

advanced divider

NIKA-FORCE Ropes are constructed using the well-known NIKA-Steel® fibers. The NIKA-Steel® fibers are a special melt mixture of high-quality European raw materials (Polypropylene, High-Density Polyethylene, UV stabilizer, and other improving elements). NIKA-Steel® fibers are produced with a unique recipe (materials’ mixing ratios – stretching ratios – stretching temperatures) and they exhibit much higher tenacity and abrasion resistance than most conventional monofilament and flat Polypropylene and Polyolefin fibers.

 

 

 

APPLICATIONS

Katradis Marine Ropes SA’s technical staff combined the best raw materials and through a carefully designed & efficient production process managed to present a reliable alternative to NIKA-CΟRD ropes. NIKA-FORCE ropes exhibit high breaking strengths and very good resistance to abrasion (due to the highly abrasion-resistant NIKA-Steel® yarns).

NIKA-FORCE ropes are UV stabilized (160KLY – suitable for Florida-USA & DUBAI-UAE sunshine conditions). NIKA-FORCE ropes are constructed according to ISO 10572 and they comply with the latest regulations and recommendations of OCIMF for the safe mooring of tankers.
