Why is it necessary to have twist identification
Twist identification of mooring lines is very important. Twist will be greatly reduced the strength of the rope, and makes the use of the rope have potential safety hazards. When the rope is twisted, the construction of the rope becomes uneven; According to the twist direction, half of the strands will bear more load while the other half will become loose, which will reduce the efficiency and strength of the rope.
Heat stretching process
In the normal manufacturing process of ropes, the fibers are not all of equal length, and some fibers only start to bear load when the shorter strands break. Due to the low elongation properties of UHMWPE fibers, this issue becomes particularly serious.
Heat stretching can fully extend the strand yarns and single fibers in the rope, increasing their orientation degree and maximum breaking strength. Multiple stretching can also eliminate uneven tension generated during manufacturing, allowing the irregularly arranged fibers in the rope to straighten out. As a result, the fiber structure gradually shrinks toward the axis center, reducing the rope's diameter.
Optima 5 that have undergone heat stretching are also flexible and tough, which means that higher strength can be obtained at the same diameter or smaller diameter can be selected.
The coating conditioner developed by ROPERS covers each fiber through a special process, providing external protection to the rope surface against wear, UV degradation, chemical exposure, and other environmental factors. Internally, it provides lubrication to reduce friction between fibers and strands. Ropes protected by this coating not only have extended lifetimes but also exhibit superior performance.
