Greffe

Composition:

  • Cover – 16 plait continuous polyester braid.
  • Core – 16 plait continuous polyester braid.

Characteristics

France olympique

Composition:

  • Cover – 16 plait continuous polyester braid.
  • Intermediate cover – 16 plait polyester braid (rope diameter 8mm and above).
  • Core – parallel polyester or aramid.

This double braid with parallel cores makes for an excellent halyard because of its reduced stretch and its good performance in winches. Non-spliceable braid. The aramid core is advised to help reduce stretch.

Braided polyester

Composition:

  • Cover – 16 plait continuous polyester braid.
  • Core – continuous parallel polyester (rope diameter 4-16mm) and continuous polyester braid (rope diameter 18mm and above).

Characteristics

High abrasion and UV resistance. Flexible rope. Used mainly for sheets and reefing lines. Also suitable for agriculture, production of textile architecture, etc.

Polypropylene braid

Composition:

  • Cover – 16 plait continuous polypropylene braid.
  • Core – continuous parallel polypropylene (except rope diameter 2-3mm, which is coreless).

Characteristics

Water repellent line used primarily for thinner halyards or light sheets.

Nomex

Composition:

  • Cover – 24 or 32 plait mixed NOMEX® / polyester braid.
  • Core – 12 plait mixed Dyneema® / polypropylene braid.

Characteristics

A completely new generation of halyards and sheets for classic yachts and rigging. The Nomex® and polyester mix makes this rope flexible, soft to touch and very abrasion resistant. Although it’s a hi-tech rope, its traditional appearance allows it to fit in perfectly on any type of ship. Nomex®, one of Dupont de Nemours®’s trademarks, provides high abrasion resistance as well as, in particular, high breaking strength and tear resistance.
