LIROS 3 Strand White Nylon (polyamide) is an excellent choice for a rope/chain combination anchor rode.
Nylon is stretchy and strong, splices neatly and directly into the chain with a very strong connection, but requires traditional rope handling skills to manage a long length because of the twisted lay of the rope.
LIROS 3 Strand Nylon Article 00110 - 100% Nylon (Polyamide) manufactured to DIN EN ISO 1140 Standard (previously DIN EN 696, DIN 83330)
Heat set twisted lay construction offers the same strength and stretch properties as the 8 strand, Octoplait version, is less expensive but suffers a little from stiffness once used in water, especially in the bigger sizes - good UV stability, excellent wear abrasion resistance Overall, a good anchor warp that will run smoothly over a rope/chain gypsy.
LIROS Break Load: 10mm 2400kg ~ 12mm 3300kg ~ 14mm 4400kg ~ 16mm ~ 5600kg ~ 18mm 7000kg - 20mm 8140kg ~ 24mm 11800kg ~ 30mm 17400kg
1 Link Splice - a crown splice formed around the last link of the chain.
Splicing Compatibility - the maximum diameter of rope that will splice successfully into a given chain calibration is limited by the amount of rope fibres that the chain link(s) will accommodate and still allow a degree of articulation in the joint:
10mm Anchorplait - 6mm and 7mm Chain 12mm Anchorplait - 7mm and 8mm chain 14mm Anchorpalit - 8mm and 10mm chain 16mm Anchorplait - 10mm chain 18mm Anchorplait - 10mm Chain 20mm Anchorplait - 12mm Chain 24mm Anchorplait - 12mm chain N.B. We do splice 16mm Anchorplait into 8mm Chain on request but it is a border line tight fit in the link
Jimmy Green Marine offer 3 top manufacturers of Calibrated Grade 40 Anchor Chain, all three eminently suitable for splicing into LIROS 3 Strand Nylon Please bear in mind that while it is possible to splice 3 Strand Nylon into Grade 70 chain, the break load of the rope will not match that of the chain.
