TERRALINE™ 8 8-strand POLYESTER rope

The engineers at Timm have managed to design a unique 8-strand polyester rope, which delivers over twice the strength of conventional polyester ropes – with a breaking strength 150% above ISO standard.

Timm has produced great ropes since 1772, and constructed our first polyester rope in 1952. Polyester is a particularly reliable fiber, and has proven to be the most durable of the conventional fibers used in ropes.

Rope testing with DNV GL – at the Ormen Lange testlab in Norway – also proved that the subsea breaking strength (MBL) transcends the MBL from the standard ISO 2307 dry test procedure.

The peak performance of the Terraline 8 is obtained mainly through three key elements:
1. Super HT polyester fibers
2. Single yarn marine coating
3. Unique 8-strand MaxLoad design

The Timm engineers have combined the experience from Acera™ high performance HMPE ropes, with an innovative 8-strand rope construction.

This MaxLoad design is based on a set of unconventional yarn twist/strand laying/rope design ratios, and the use of new tools for simultaneous tensioning of all filaments, yarns and strands respectively.

The result is an unparalleled high performance solution which outperforms other traditional polyester ropes.

Suitable for:
Fishery Mooring Towing
