Fiber Structures

TEUFELBERGER used different fiber structures that support the characteristics of the rope.


Monofilaments

The yarns consist of one single element of a relatively large diameter and are braided into a rope.

 

Characteristics:

  • Very good abrasion resistance
  • Low dirt take-up
  • tiff structure

Textured fibers

A certain degree of disorder is caused in a formerly straight bundle of synthetic fibers to generate characteristics which are usually seen only on natural fibers.

 

Characteristics:

  • Good grip
  • High elasticity
  • Traditional look and feel

    Multifilaments

    A bundle of thin fibers processed into twines which then are braided into a rope. The majority of fiber ropes follow this basic design.

     

    Characteristics:

    • High flexibility
    • High tensile strength

    Staple fiber

    This type of material consists of spun pieces of short filaments instead of a bundle of long ones.

     

    Characteristics:

    • Excellent grip
    • Soft handling
