EVOLUTION TK18 has, for many years, been used as a hoist rope on ships and offshore platforms on oceans around the globe in order to lift loads into or out of the water. Its main objectives are to provide corrosion resistance for permanent contact with salt water and to guarantee the secure operation of the crane also for extended periods of use.

 Benefits of EVOLUTION TK18:

  • Pro Active core lubrication - special lubrication for use with active heave compensation (AHC) systems that is ideally suited for high temperatures and extreme heights
  • Long, trouble-free service life thanks to the permanent lubrication of its core provided by the PLASTFILL® insert
  • Highest operational safety due to the high actual breaking forces and the excellent torsional characteristics, even for enormous depths
  • Extremely resistant to corrosion and other external environmental influences due to the PLASTFILL® insert between the core and the outer strands
  • High wear resistance due to the compacted rope surface and the bigger wires in the outer strands
  • Perfect spooling characteristics due to the rope construction's good dimensional stability under lateral pressure and high flexibility
