12 strand braided rope, made of DYNEEMA® yarns.
This rope forms an excellent alternative for heavy and lumbersome steelwire ropes in situations requiring manual handling of the rope.
The strength is higher than that of the conventional steelwire rope and the corrosponding weight is 7 times lower!
The better handling charecteristics are especially appreciated in towing and mooring applications.
This rope is floating! When replacing fibre rope the reduction in diameter can lead to substancial saving of weight and size of e.g. the mooring winches, and when incorporated in the design of the vessel at newbuilding to a saving of cost as well.
