Columbian Rope Co. Offers Free Literature Detailing New Fiber Rope For Marine Use
The Columbian Rope Company, Guntown, Miss., is offering a number of free brochures, bulletins and literature on their new Columbian Eureka® Karat®, Columbian Yankee ® Blend Karat® and Columbian Yankee® 101 Blend Karat® thermoplastic ropes as well as its other series of cordage and ropes for the marine industry.
The newly published literature from Columbian Rope provides extensive details and data, as well as specifications on the fiber EStalon®, which is used in the Columbian Eurkea Karat, Yankee Blend Karat and Yankee 101 Blend Karat series of thermoplastic ropes. A strength-toweight ratio chart of rope fibers is provided, as well as a detailed rope specification table.
According to the company, EStalon is the result of many years' intensive research and development.
Its highly sophisticated formulization combines a specially extruded blend of polyester and polypropylene synthetic. The unique EStalon split-film yarn results in a rope with remarkable strength to weight qualities.
Columbian reports that along with tremendous strength, EStalon characteristics include a higher melting point, superior abrasion resistance, great flexibility, ultraviolet stability, low elongation, no water absorbency, and a specific gravity of less than 1—which means that EStalon floats in salt water.
Columbian manufactures Eureka Karat rope from 100 percent EStalon, while Yankee Blend Karat and Yankee 101 Blend Karat are made of Estalon and another fiber.
Both Yankee Blend Karat and Yankee 101 Blend Karat are excellent for use aboard tugs, workboats and barges because of their high surface friction resistance, strength, durability, light weight and handling features.
In addition, Columbian also has introduced Eureka® Karat® mooring lines, and the company is offering literature fully detailing the product.
According to the company, Karat mooring ropes have been used by one major U.S. shipowner since 1984. The Karat synthetic mooring ropes, 7-1/2-inch and 7-inch-diameter lines, have replaced 1-1/4-inch and 1-1/8-inch wire ropes.
Eureka Karat rope is an arrangement of polyester polymers and polypropylene polymers in a combined extruded form.
