3-strand polymerised polyamide dockline
Ideal rope for use as a dock line or anchor line.
Compared to polyester, polyamide has a significantly higher elongation at break (from 15 to 20%). Its high elasticity makes it particularly suitable for docking, as its fibres protect the cleats by absorbing shocks.
- Good abrasion and UV resistance.
- Polymerisation provides better stabilisation of the strands, more flexibility of the rope and facilitates the splicing operation.
- Goog elasticity
- Easy to splice
If you want to show off in front of your friends, use the word “polyamide” to speak about this plastic material that is a hit on the textile market. If that was a flop because your friends already knew that polyamide was mostly known by its trade name Nylon ®, you can save face by specifying that the word corresponds to the abbreviations of New Yorkand London, the two factories of the American company Du Pont de Nemours that discovered the fibre in the mid-thirties.
