Vulcanus from TEUFELBERGER is certified to EN 1891A. Because of its aramid cover, it is suited for use as a heat resistant rope.
Standard: EN 1891A
Vulcanus is a heat resistant rope from TEUFELBERGER and certified to EN 1891A. This rescue rope consists of a polyamide core and an aramid cover. Contrary to polyester and polyamide, aramids are highly heat resistant. What is more, these fibers exhibit excellent strength and only slight elongation at break.
Vulcanus ideally complements our portfolio in that it features increased resistance to cutting and abrasion. In view of these properties, it is suited for use as a work rope or work positioning rope and equally well suited for work activities near heat sources and sharp edges. In view of its heat resistance, using it for several fast abseiling procedures in rapid succession is not a problem. Hence, it is also well suited for special intervention units, emergency response organizations, and for use in rescue operations.
Vulcanus offers the following advantages:
- fully compatible with EN 1891A
- high decomposition point (up to 500°C)
- high strength
- increased resistance to cutting and abrasion
