Ropeadvise® | Synthetic ropes

HMPE rope with improved coating

This synthetic rope type has proven itself as full replacement for heavy (general purpose) (6x36IWRC) steelwire. 

Due to the equal or higher strength but 8-10 times lighter in weight. Available in different fibre types HMPE  with improved abrasion resistance.

Next to the HMPE ropes we also can deliver ropes or mooring tails made from Polyester (PES) and Polypropylene (PP) or mixed fibres. We recommend the Rope splicing training in addition to the delivery or in case there is a lack of knowledge on board regarding rope knowledge and splicing skills.
