Furler Lite has been designed to be used for endless furling lines, the ropes construction allows for easy endless splicing with no diameter increase. Furler Lite has a braided black Technora® and Polyester cover with a sacrificial Polypropylene braided core, the cover’s construction provides excellent heat and abrasion resistance.
Elongation is based on figures taken from tests across the diameter range, to produce an average figure.
Technora® is a para-aramid fibre, exclusively produced by Teijin Aramid in Matsuyama, Japan. The fibre is available in two colours natural beige colour and black version. Technora® is strong with excellent abrasion resistance, the fibre has no melting point but starts to decompose once the ambient temperature reaches 500 °C (932 °F).
Polyester has a specific gravity of 1.38 which means it will not float. Polyester has no strength loss when wet, it is flexible and has good abrasion resistance. Polyester fibres also have good resistance to chemicals and have a melting point of 295°C.
