The distinctive red chafe guards of Timm have been protecting rope assets since 2012. These high tenacity guards are suitable for all rope types (except steel wire). OCIMF states that a rope’s ability to “resist external abrasion damage may be improved by the addition of an abrasion resistant overall jacket". It will also “serve to protect from UV exposure".
These can be easily installed and can provide an instant defensive barrier against sharp surfaces and edges. The heat resistant properties of PES, will also shield your rope from excessive frictional heat build-up.
Poorly maintained fairleads and chocks can also severly harm the service life of your mooring lines. Timm would suggest in such circumstances, applying a chafe guard to reduce destructive cutting.
The Timm Chafe Guard is highly resistant to mineral acids, alkali, electrolytes, oxidising agents and remains stable in aqueous acids and non-polar solvents. They are cold and frost resistant (rot-proof) and are easily fixed into place with 1m lines at each end and an extra durable velcro lining.
