Nylacast Chock Liner
Patented low friction technology to support safe and reliable moorings.
Helping to achieve OCIMF meg4 compliance.
Nylacast developed the Chock Liner application to optimise and enhance vessel mooring. Much of its advantages are owed to the unique and versatile materials technology developed through over 20 years of field experience in design, testing and material selection with fibre ropes. The custom-formulated Engineered Polymer has very low friction and is lightweight and corrosion-resistant.
Nylacast’s Chock Liner material technology accommodates HMPE rope and lowers the risk of abrasion and wear when in contact with the chock or Panama fairlead. The Chock Liner is also suitable for polyester/polypropylene, polyester and nylon ropes, as required for FLNG, FSRU and STS, where a specific synthetic pennant may pass through the fairlead.
The unique material paired with the patented coupling technology provides vessel owners and operators with easy installation and low maintenance to improve efficiency overall. NO hot works or dry docking is required for installation.
The Nylacast Chock Liner is also available in ATEX-approved materials for specific industry requirements.
Vessel designers, owners and operators request the Chockliner for new vessels and a retrofit solution to replace Panama fairleads and roller fair leads.
Benefits & Advantages
Significantly reduced rope wear and abrasion eliminates risk of breaking or failure.
No need for crew to be near mooring lines under tension, as no chafe protection required.
Low friction material easily accommodates offshore mooring fibre ropes with significantly reduced risk of wear and abrasion. And eliminated need for jackets.
Self-lubricating, corrosion resistant material results in little or no maintenance needs and elimination of any painting, coating or external protection.
NO hot works or dry docking needed.
Installation kit provided with delivery.
Corrosion resistant material protects against the arduous environments faced in the marine and shipping industry.
Smooth surface finish and material provides better equalisation of mooring loads, especially when in high swell.
