NILSPIN

NILSPIN was engineered specifically for underwater applications.  With its phenomenal resistance to kinking, corrosion, abrasion and fatigue, NILSPIN is a significant improvement over regular 3x19 oceanographic ropes.

Following the success of our plastic impregnated and coated SPACE-LAY wire rope on long and short term buoy implants, our engineers have designed the ideal underwater rope combining the unique anti-kink and corrosion resisting properties of regular SPACE-LAY with outstanding anti-rotational characteristics, high yield strength, low stretch and low weight in water.
