Lanko®force sets new HMPE rope benchmark

Posted

Lanko®force is a well-proven synthetic rope in maritime applications demanding high strength. By switching to the latest high modulus polyethylene (HMPE) yarns from Dyneema®, we’ve boosted the rope’s strength retention factor.

Lanko®force is a 12 strand braided rope, and an excellent alternative to heavy and lumbersome steel wire ropes in situations requiring manual handling of the rope. Indeed, while the strength of Lanko®force is comparable to that of conventional steel wire rope, it weighs 7 times less making it an easier rope to handle.

The introduction of DSM’s Dyneema® SK78 fibers for Lanko®force ropes sets a new benchmark for HMPE rope performance in mooring, towing, salvage and lifting. The yarn has a maximum strength rating of 35 cn/dtex compared with other HMPE yarns offering up to 30 cn/dtex, producing a stronger rope. Most importantly, the rope’s higher strength retention factor means the fibers are well suited to the small, repetitive shock loads encountered during towing.

Creep performance is another area of improvement; as a result Lanko®force shows significantly less structural elongation under static loads during long-term moorings.

By switching to Dyneema SK78 we’re able to make a step change in the strength, resilience and creep performance of HMPE maritime ropes. With Lanko®force we are able to offer operators an easier to handle alternative to steel wire ropes for towing, salvage and lifting.

Lanko®force ropes are also available in a range of protective jackets where the rope is exposed to high levels of abrasion and resultant heat. Three types of jacket are available: polyester, Tipto® and Dyneema®. Lankhorst also offers Lanko®force with the innovative Challenger coating, significantly reducing wear from abrasion. The absence of the jacket on the body of the rope makes it easier to inspect the rope and means the rope requires less maintenance, thus increasing the rope’s utility.
