Tough-Ace Rope

Tough-Ace rope is composed with Polyester and Polypropylene fiber.
Polyester has good durability against abrasion and fatigue which means being economy and safe.
In addition, Polypropylene fiber is also economical and extremely light.
This combined rope is in high demand from shipping companies and marine construction companies.
The 1.02 typefloats on sea water.
The 1.06 type has excellent durability against abrasion.
When you use under the condition in which wearing out might happen, as on fairleader, we recommend “TWELL”.

Depending on techniques and development, sometimes numerical values may change.
When comparing with the value of Nylon, the weight decreases 10%,
and its durability against fatigue increases 20%.

In the case of use in the field of towing,we recommend everyday visual inspection.In addition,we can correctly recognize the degree of fatigue of rope by the residual breaking strength test and can recommend our ropes as being extremely safe.
