GORE® OMNIBEND® Fiber for High Performance Ropes
In high-tension, high-stress bending and lifting, rope reliability and performance are critical. Gore’s patented technology adds GORE® OMNIBEND® Fiber to conventional synthetic rope constructions, dramatically increasing service life. The addition of GORE® OMNIBEND® Fiber can make the difference between reliable performance and premature failure.
Unprecedented bending life for the most demanding applications.
Deepwater installation of subsea hardware
High performance ropes with GORE® OMNIBEND® Fiber offer clear advantages:
Reduced installation and re-rigging costs
Compatibility with conventional rope construction
Unique in the industry.
GORE® OMNIBEND® Fiber is composed of proprietary expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) with specific engineered physical qualities. The fiber acts as a durable dry barrier to abrasion, reducing friction and elevated temperatures normally caused by friction. This technology also enhances the performance of custom coatings. The result: GORE® OMNIBEND® Fiber can vastly increase a rope's service life and reliability.
Like all Gore products, GORE® OMNIBEND® Fiber is backed by a history of innovation and research supported by a worldwide service organization. Let us work with you to enhance the performance and life of your high-tension synthetic rope designs. Contact us to learn more.
Designed and tested to meet your requirements.
Gore utilizes a range of testing and analytical equipment to evaluate rope technology and validate its performance in specific end-use conditions. We have developed a dedicated rope testing lab with state-of-the-art Bend Over Sheave (BOS) test equipment.
Gore's on-site BOS machine demonstrates our commitment to providing engineering and technical services for high performance rope. These facilities are complemented by our staff of scientists and engineers with the equipment and experience to do detailed failure analysis. We can work with you to meet industry testing protocols and to determine suitability in your application.
