The Function And Classification Of Marine Mooring Rope

Jan 26, 2024

Mooring Rope is a crucial link in ship mooring, ship operations, marine rescue, transportation and hoisting operations, and is widely used in ship applications and many other aspects!

Mooring rope according to the strength, elasticity, durability and operation to choose the most suitable materials.Multiple strands mooring rope used to tie ships. Requires the tensile strength, impact resistance, abrasion resistance, flexibility, light.

According to the structure, can be divided into with 3 strands rope, 6 strands rope, 8 strands rope, 12 strands rope, double braided rope.

According to the material, can be diveded as following:

1.Nylon rope :

High strength, light weight, soft, high elastic, long-term use is not easy to fatigue. The characteristics of strong wear resistance, chemical resistance, oil chemical reaction does not occur.

2.Polyester rope:

High strength, high temperature resistance and the resistance to climate, suitable for high load continuous friction, Acid resistance, alkali resistance and oil resistance, so used for towing.

3.Polypropylene rope:

Soft, low water absorption rate, High oil and chemical corrosion resistance, Not easy to absorb dust, dirt. Friction resistance, not easy to slide in the roller and bollard, in the case of repeated curl, has little influence on the strength. Convenient operation, small elongation, small rebound.

4.Polyethylene rope:

Low temperature resistance, chemical resistance, chemical corrosion resistance. No absorb water that can floating on the water, keeping the various properties in water, suitable for water application. Poor high temperature resistance .still has enough strength at low temperature, soft and easy to operate.

The importance of correctly selecting mooring ropes for ships

Marine mooring ropes are an essential component of normal ship operation. Although the quality of the cables may not pose a threat to navigation safety, it is crucial for the safety of ships berthing, leaving the dock, and passing through narrow waterways.
