Overview

In high-tension, high-stress bending and lifting, rope reliability and performance are critical. Gore’s patented technology adds GORE Performance Fiber for High Performance Ropes to conventional synthetic rope constructions, dramatically increasing service life. The addition of GORE Performance Fiber for High Performance Ropes can make the difference between reliable performance and premature failure.

Unprecedented bending life for the most demanding applications.

  • Deepwater installation of subsea hardware
  • Elevators
  • Hoists
  • Cranes
  • Mining

High performance ropes with GORE Performance Fiber offer clear advantages:

Unique in the industry.

GORE Performance Fiber for High Performance Ropes 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.  

The best products and the best people, dedicated to quality.

Like all Gore products, GORE Performance Fiber for High Performance Ropes 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.
