B08/B12Complex Fiber Mooring Line
(Core/Cover): Polypropylene ＆Polyethylene
Standard: ISO 2307
Superpoly line is a special fiber created by a complex number of polymers, and then made of 12 strand or 8 strand rope construction. Its strength is higher than that of general polypropylene rope, and elongation is slightly lower than that of general polyethylene rope. This product's weight is light that it is floating and does not absorb water, and the operation is easy. The performance and strength are better than those of general polyolefin ropes.
- Special gravity 0.94, floats and water non-absorption
- Good UV resistance
- Firm, but also flexible
- Easy to splice and make loop
- light weight, easy to operate, high efficiency
- General working line
- Mooring tails
- Primary mooring line
- Secondary mooring lines
Specifications are for unspliced strengths, strength will decreases by about 10% after splicing.
Custom size and length available by request.
Mooring lines include primary mooring lines and mooring tails. The primary mooring line which requires high strength and light weight is used to fix the vessel on the shore; The mooring tails that connect the primary line and the mooring bollard should have good elasticity and wear resistance, provide the extension performance for the mooring system, and minimize the impact load caused by wind or waves.
The primary mooring lines and mooring tail can be connected with each other through shackles, splicing or cow hitch, which is convenient for releasing, mooring and replacing mooring tails, and prolongs the service life of the whole mooring system. The best way to improve the stability and efficiency of the mooring system is to select the most suitable mooring line according to the needs.
Rope construction comparison
8-Strand: A braided construction with good strength and elongation. This construction can disperse wear without excessive damage to fibers, so it has good wear resistance.
12 Strand: The hollow single braided construction is very easy to splice, with higher strength and lower elongation. This construction can withstand more internal fiber damage and strength loss caused by cyclic load.
