The Ultimate Synthetic Rope
Parafil Cable - SIC Italiana Cavi

PARAFIL® ropes consist of a core of closely packed, high strength aramid or polyester fibres, lying parallel to each other, encased in a protective polymeric sheath.

This structure is combined with a specially designed termination technique.

The combination of these two technologies produces ropes of immense strength, capable of meeting the requirements of even the most complex application.

PARAFIL® types
There are three standard types of PARAFIL® available based on the type of fibre used for the core.

However, each of these is available with a choice of polymeric sheaths to suit varying applications.

These include a specially formulated polyethylene, which is suitable for most applications, an EVA copolymer that is more flexible and stress-crack resistant,and a polyester elastomer that offers higher resistance to heat and abrasion.

A flame retardant, cross linked polymer sheath is also available.

Insulating guys, catenaries and support systems

The first applications for PARAFIL® ropes were in the antenna and electrical industries. PARAFIL® is used in insulating guys, catenaries and support systems where PARAFIL'S high tensile strength and insulating properties along with resistance to UV radiation ensures a long and virtually maintenance-free life.

The use of PARAFIL® in these areas has now been extended across the world. In each instance tailor-made PARAFIL® ropes and specially designed terminations are produced to meet each specific customers needs – no system is too complex for PARAFIL®.
