Why use high performance chafe protection?
Mainlines: Jacketed vs. Nonjacketed
Jacketed lines are commonly used as mainlines worldwide and are perceived as having a longer service life because of the jacket and core construction. However, some users of these lines find that the jacket breaks or wears faster than the core, resulting in the need to replace the entire line.
|The advantages of nonjacketed lines with chafe (rope) protection are numerous: |
> They are stronger than jacketed lines size for size and they are easy to inspect and repair.
