Our unique production process isn’t limited to one fibre only; FibreMax can produce cables out of any fibre material, depending on the application or customer’s request. Our engineers will assist you in choosing the best fibre option for your application. Fibres that can be used are polyester, aramid, HMPE® or carbon.
Each fibre material has its own distinctive properties. The choice for the right fibre is depending on the characteristics of the application. The need for strength or break load, stretch, dimensions or fatigue life will be of influence on the right fibre choice. Also other issues like weight, costs and lifespan can influence the choice. In order to bring light to the different types of fibres we summarize the most common types and their properties.
All FibreMax cables are supplied as standard with end fittings. Due to our unique endless winding production process the fittings are directly incorporated during this process. This means that there is no need for splicing as is required with traditional steel wire or braided synthetic ropes. The breakload we specify for our cables is the minimal break load (MBL) at which the cable will break; there is no need to subtract a certain percentage (mostly 10%) because of splices.
