Phillystran® HMPE

Phillystran® HMPE

Phillystran high modulus polyethylene fiber ropes (HMPE) have been specifically designed for dock mooring lines, head lines, and breast lines, or any application requiring ropes that are easy to handle and splice. HMPE ropes consist of four HMPE fiber strands around an independent synthetic core. Each strand is individually over-braided with alternating aramid and polyester yarns for added abrasion resistance. Floating ropes are also available upon request.

CAUTION: Break Strength: The breaking strength of a rope is the load at which a new rope will break when tested under laboratory conditions. Break strength should not be mistaken for safe working load. Safe Working Load: Because of the wide range of rope use, rope condition and the degree of risk of life or property, it is not possible to make a blanket recommendation for safe working load. It is ultimately dependent on the rope user to determine what percentage of break strength is their own safe working load. Wear: Ropes wear out with use; the more severe the usage, the greater the wear. It is often not possible to detect wear on a rope by visible signs alone. Therefore, it is recommended that the rope user determine a retirement criteria for ropes in their application. For assistance in developing safe working load and retirement criteria for each application please call or write Phillystran.
