MOORING TAILS PROVIDE ELASTICITY AND SHOCK/ENERGY ABSORBING WITHIN THE MOORING ARRANGEMENT AND PREVENT DAMAGES TO PRIMARY MOORING LINE. USED ESPECIALLY IN COMBINATION WITH STEEL OR UHMWPE ROPES IN MOORING, TOWING AND OFFSHORE APPLICATIONS.
Standard lengths produced:
- For ringtails: 22 m effective working length with 2 protected eyes of 2 m and 5 fixing points on this length. MBL of ringtail is 1.6 x higher than MBL of single leg mooring tail.
- For mooring tails: 11 m / 22 m effective working length with 2 protected eyes of 2 m / 1 m for mooring tails.
The basic material of the rope is a mixture of Polys and high-tenacity polyester fibres.In general, composite has medium elongation (15 – 17 % at break), high energy absorption, the rope remains elastic for a longer time. MBL in dry is equal as wet. The strength of composite ropes is higher than that of nylon ropes. Due to this fact smaller diameter of rope can be used, providing better and safer handling.As per OCIMF regulation required MBL must be 25 % higher than steel rope.

NYLON / POLYAMID
Advantage is extra shock absorption, high elongation (25 % at break) and excellent UV protection.As per OCIMF regulation required MBL must be 37 % higher than steel rope.
8-Strand Tuck Splice Method 1 and 2:
8-strand ropes are made in whole or in part from any of the following high modulus fibres: polypropylene, polysteel, Multitex (polypropylen technical fibres), polyester, nylon or combination of these fibres.The eye splice is used to place a permanent loop in the end of a rope, generally for connection purposes to a fixed point. An eye is also used to form the rope around a thimble, which is used to protect the rope, especially when it is to be attached to a shackle, chain or wire rope. We can make full protected eye with polyester tubular cloth and full protected splice with seizing, which increase service life of ropes.
