Cortland Chafe Protection

For extended service life of fiber ropes and slings.

Cortland’s high performance ropes are manufactured using some of the most cut and abrasion resistant fibers available in the world today. Many users benefit from the ability to inspect a non-jacketed rope, such as Plasma®. However, when extra defense from heat, the elements, cutting, abrasion, or ingress of dirt, mud or particulates is needed, added wear protection can provide the solution. Cortland offers several wear protection options as a sacrificial layer of protection, increasing the service life of a rope or sling and ensuring a safe and successful operation.

Each application has its own characteristic requirements. To address the various issues, Cortland offers several different wear protection options which range in protective quality, weight, and cost.

Asgard

Asgard wear protection is typically used for protection of lifting or mooring ropes and provides outstanding durability and resistance towards harsh operating conditions. The design features a strong, lightweight construction which is easy to install and retrofit on existing items. Asgard wear protection is designed according to a given diameter of the item to be protected and is provided in lengths according to client specifications.

Asgard wear protection is made from HMPE (High Modulus Polyethylene) and PNW (polyester and/or nylon) fibers in a woven, laminated and PUcoated construction and built in a layered design. The fibers utilized are the toughest of the traditional synthetic fibers. HMPE, for example, is used in personal armor products and PNW is used by the military for belts and webbing. Asgard wear protection can be delivered in a flat construction for protection of webbing, or in a circular construction, for use on mooring ropes for instance.

Asgard wear protection can be custom fabricated to other dimensions and configurations per customer requirements.

Key benefits of Asgard:

  • Available with hook-and-clasp, or lace-on closures
  • Custom fabricated to fit rope diameter and length requirements
