Mooring Line Chafe Protection

Tuesday, February 19, 2013

Fluoron Inc. has developed an Eddy Mooring Line Protection System that is designed to separate the mooring line from all surfaces that will chafe the line. The Eddy System will exceed the breaking strength of the line application, to reduce the possibility of ”Snap Back Phenomenon,” provides chafe protection between mooring line and metal  surfaces, at points of contact and eliminates wear on polished Stainless Steel bits. Flexibility of Eddy System will provide chafing protection for 360 degrees within the I.D. of a chock and eye.   The Eddy System is UV protected. When the mooring line is at maximum tension the internal core fibers will rub against each other developing frictional heat that will melt the fibers together, reducing the breaking strength by 50%.
