Technora 12 Strand
Technora 12 Strand If you have a demanding application such as landing a rover on the surface of Mars then Technora is the material of choice. This para-aramid fibre rope has excellent tensile strength and fatigue resistance as well as superior resistance to chemicals but it is perhaps its superb resistance to heat degradation that really sets it apart. Technora ropes are chosen as escape ropes by fire fighters and are becoming increasingly popular with theatre riggers. This 12 strand construction rope is very easy to splice enabling the rigger to make up hauling lines quickly on site. As the rope has virtually no stretch under normal working conditions it is the perfect choice when equipment needs to be accurately positioned such as on motor controlled tracks and hoists.
