MAGNARO® HMPE PLUS ROPES
MAGNARO® HMPE PLUS ROPE
HMPE (High-modulus polyethylene) fibres are produced by gel-spinning ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE). It has a very low coefficient of friction and is extremely resistant to abrasion.
The strength is higher than that of conventional steel wire rope and the corresponding weight is up to 7 times lower.
Its better handling characteristics, buoyancy and increased safety (no lash back) are especially appreciated in towing and mooring applications.
The cover can be made from polyester or HMPE, giving the rope extra protection against abrasion and thus increasing the service life of the rope.
