Deep Water Synthetic Fibre Ropes

Cortland specializes in building and delivering custom designed rope solutions that are high strength, long length, low weight, and have a proven track record in the most challenging global conditions.

Cortland engineers products using both high performance and standard fibres to offer customers the proper solution for each application. High performance fibres are generally limited to three major types, HMPE, liquid crystal polymer (LCP) and Aramids.

HMPE has excellent fatigue and robustness properties; however it suffers from low heat tolerance. LCP provides good fatigue properties with excellent creep resistance. Aramids have excellent heat and creep resistance properties but do not perform as well in abrasion resistance, tension-tension and bend fatigue.

Examples:

  • Synthetic coring ropes
  • Hair fairings
  • Inline attachment or lifting points
