Alfa®Eight

Alfa®Eight is a special composite rope that mixes high tenacity polyester yarns with high tenacity polypropylene multifilament yarns. This distinct combination gives it excellent fatigue properties when compared to an all polyester rope but with less handling weight. Its firm plaited and non rotational construction provides flexibility, excellent abrasion and heat resistance to a rope that sinks.

 

Major features:

Exceptional abrasion and wear resistance even in wet conditions
18-20 % lighter than regular polyester ropes
Low water absorption
Flexible and smooth, non kinking and non rotating
Excellent UV resistance
Sinks

Raw material: Polyester / Mixed Polyolefins
Specific Gravity: 1,10
Melting Point: 265ºC / 165ºC
Elongation at % of BS:
25% …. 4,0%
50% …. 6,0%

Main applications:

Mooring lines
Towing lines
