Benefits & advantages

An evolution in mooring technology with safety in mind.

Custom manufactured from initial chemistry to end product, the patented Nylacast Chock Liner® helps to deliver multiple advantages to vessels operating within key industries worldwide.

The Nylacast Chock Liner® can be fitted without any hot work or dry docking, to all chock and vessel types. It can be fitted to new vessels as well as being retro fitted to existing vessels with chocks and panama fairleads.

Increased Safety

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.

Technology

The Chock Liner® was developed by Nylacast to optimise and enhance vessel mooring. Much of the advantages it delivers is 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. This enabled the selection of a custom formulated material which has very low friction coupled with lightweight and corrosion resistance.

Nylacast’s Chock Liner® material technology allows for the accommodation of HMPE rope lower 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 an easy installation, low maintenance product capable of increasing overall efficiency. 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.

“We have experienced huge improvements to our mooring and rope condition after fitting Nylacast Chock Liners. Especially on ropes with no protection, without the Chock Liners I believe the ropes would only last 5 years. Whilst the Chock Liner is hard and tough, it is much smoother and softer than the old steel which means the tension absorption is far better. Fitting Nylacast’s Chock Liner to our vessel was money well spent and we no longer experience rope burn or chafing.”
