Abrasion and heat generation can often be the enemy of synthetic fibre ropes.To that end, Marlow have a range of options to protect single and double braided fibre ropes, reduce fatigue and extend life.These include:
Specially formulated polyurethane coating.
Improves abrasion resistance and durability.
Increases friction, aids handling and splicing.
Provides colour coding (black as standard, other colour options available on request.
Synthetic Polymer Anionic Coating.
Prevents ingress of dirt and abrasion particles.
Provides “self healing” properties.
Increases coefficient of friction.
Significantly improves core/cover adhesion.
Enhances bending performance.
Reduces yarn on yarn abrasion and heat generation by a factor of 2.
Applied at rope manufacture stage.
Improves flex fatigue experienced in continuous cyclic bending.
Reduces yarn on yarn abrasion and heat generation by a factor of 5.
Applied at yarn manufacture stage – can be used in conjunction with any of the above coatings.
