FibreMax aramid cables are made with Twaron® or Technora®, which is a very strong fibre developed and produced exclusively by Teijin Aramid. It has a high modulus, is thermally stable, highly impact and chemical resistant.
The unique properties of Twaron® or Technora® fibres used in FibreMax aramid cables give these cables a number of significant advantages over steel-wire ropes, polyester or nylon ropes. When compared at the same MBL, FibreMax aramid cables offer smaller diameters and less weight, resulting in major advantages in terms of easier handling, increasing safety, faster operations and downsizing of constructions.
- Good strength-to-weight ratio
- Low creep of 0,20%
- Good fatigue life
- Low elongation
- Good chemical resistance
Aramid cables can be used in a wide range of applications such as
- Crane pendants
- Boom suspension ropes in mining machine
- Deep sea mooring
- Offshore and marine applications
- Heavy lifting
- Bridge stay cables
- Structural engineering
- Guyed towers and antennas
