EUROCROSS® KNOTLESS NETTING (HTPE)

EUROCROSS® is a special netting produced from HTPE (High Tenacity Polyethylene) and is composed of high strength 4 strands (each one passing through the other, generating a braided effect). This highly sophisticated method of producing EUROCROSS® knotless netting offers the following advantages:

· SUPERIOR STRENGTH: When using knotted netting, there is a loss of 25 to 35% in strength.EUROCROSS® knotless netting is aligned and, as there are no sharp bends, the strength is maintained throughout, thus allowing the use of lighter twines for the same breaking strength.

· REDUCTION OF WEIGHT AND BULK: For the same strength, less twine used in the mesh construction, which can result in a saving of as much as 40% of material. Having no knots, the bulk of the net is greatly reduced.

· LESS WATER RESISTANCE AND REDUCED DRAG: The cumulative water-resistance of the knots in traditional nets is considerable, which in turn becomes an important factor during the performance of the net, when towed. Bearing this in mind, the use of EUROCROSS® can considerably reduce drag and improve the water-flow through the meshes, during operation.

· CONSISTENT MESH SIZE: Due to the fact that there is no knot tightening during operation (as in the case of knotted nets), the meshes in our EUROCROSS® are constant and consistent throughout every bale of netting produced.

· EXCEPTIONAL WEARING PROPERTIES: With elimination of knots in EUROCROSS® netting, we offer less abrasion and wear, hence resulting in longer lifetime.

· NO DAMAGE TO CATCH: When fishing with knotted cod-ends, fish can often be damaged due to friction against the knots. The use of EUROCROSS® netting will considerably reduce this effect, thus increasing significantly the quality of the fish caught. This in turn means more value of the catch on the market.

· EXCELLENT FOR SQUARE MESH APPLICATIONS: EUROCROSS® is the perfect material for square mesh applications, since it keeps a good shape when used in cod-ends or in specific selectivity applications.
