Wear Protection

When extra defense from heat, the elements, cutting, abrasion, or ingress of dirt, mud or particulates is needed, added wear protection can provide the solution. Cortland offers several wear protection options as a sacrificial layer of protection, increasing the service life of a rope or sling and ensuring a safe and successful operation.

SX Chafe Guard
SX Chafe Guard

Combining the lightweight, non water-absorbing properties of HMPE fiber in a tightly braided cover sleeve, SX offers the best cut and abrasion resistance of all wear protection. SX can be supplied with a high visibility polyurethane coating. Primary usage is in eye termination protection and can be seized or spliced into the 12x12 construction.

Cortland Cage

The Cortland Cage solution combines the lightweight, abrasion resistant, and non-water-absorbing properties of HMPE fiber in a braided cover sleeve. Cortland Cage can be secured in place by splice-termination or heavy duty whipping. The open braid pattern allows inspection of Plasma® 12x12 and reduces the total weight of the wear protection. A proprietary polyurethane coating provides added protection in challenging marine environments.

Asgard
Asgard Chafe Sleeve

Asgard wear protection is typically used for protection of lifting or mooring ropes and provides outstanding durability and resistance towards harsh operating conditions. The design features a strong, lightweight construction which is easy to install and retrofit on existing items. Asgard wear protection is designed according to a given diameter of the item to be protected and is provided in lengths according to client specifications.

Asgard wear protection is made from HMPE (High Modulus Polyethylene) and PNW (polyester and/or nylon) fibers in a woven, laminated and PU-coated construction and built in a layered design. The fibers utilized are the toughest of the traditional synthetic fibers. Asgard wear protection can be delivered in a flat construction for protection of webbing, or in a circular construction, for use on mooring ropes for instance.

DXC Wear Protection
DXC Chafe Sleeve

The DXC wear protection is a tightly braided tubular polyester wear protection sleeve with proprietary marine polyurethane coating for use in extreme applications. Excellent choice for placement in the eye or body of sling; DXC wear protection can be fabricated to be free-floating or fixed in place.

XT Wear Protection
XT Chafe Guard

XT wear protection is a tightly braided tubular polyester wear protection with proprietary heavy marine polyurethane coating for use in extreme wear applications. XT wear protection can be fabricated to be free-floating, or fixed in place. It is an excellent choice for eye terminations or selected area body placement, braid-spliced or seized in place. This wear protection is not as flexible as SX wear protection or PNW.

PNW Tubular
PNW Tubular

PNW is a woven fiber material and is the most commonly used protection for abrasion. This wear protection is a permanent installation. PNW wear protection can be customized to meet the needs of any application. Standard colors are black or orange.

PNW With Hook-and-Clasp Securement
PNW With Hook-and-Clasp Securement

PNW is a woven fiber material and is the most commonly used protection for abrasion. PNW wear protection can be customized to meet the needs of any application. This is a removable or replaceable wear protection and is available in black or orange.
