GORE® Performance Fiber for High Performance Ropes can drastically increase the service life of synthetic ropes used in high-tension bending applications.
In high-tension, high-stress bending and lifting, rope reliability and performance are critical. Gore’s patented technology adds GORE Performance Fiber for High Performance Ropes to conventional synthetic rope constructions, dramatically increasing service life. The addition of GORE Performance Fiber for High Performance Ropes can make the difference between reliable performance and premature failure.
Unprecedented bending life for the most demanding applications.
Deepwater installation of subsea hardware
High performance ropes with GORE Performance Fiber offer clear advantages:
- Significantly longer service life
- Reduced operating temperature
- Reduced installation and re-rigging costs
- Compatibility with conventional rope construction
- Quiet operation
Unique in the industry.
GORE Performance Fiber for High Performance Ropes is composed of proprietary expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) with specific engineered physical qualities. The fiber acts as a durable dry barrier to abrasion, reducing friction and elevated temperatures normally caused by friction. This technology also enhances the performance of custom coatings. The result: GORE OMNIBEND Fiber can vastly increase a rope's service life and reliability.
