Chafe-Pro® is a cost effective means for preventing chafe abrasion to synthetic lines. Constructed of our proprietary nylon weave, which was designed specifically for the US Coast Guard and US Navy, Chafe-Pro® will protect lines under the abrasive conditions of the harsh marine environment.
Chafe-Pro® is regarded today by the maritime industry as the best chafing gear offered on the world market.
Chafe-Pro®‘s Yacht Grade units have a single layer of heavy-grade black nylon similar to the nylon used in our Commercial Grade series. The Barracuda model was designed specifically for use on the US Coast Guard 87 foot Protector-class and the old 82 foot Point-class cutters. The Barracuda differs in design from the 98Y series by its dimensions and the materials used. This model has an outer layer of blue colored marine-grade polyester and an inner layer of our heavy-grade black nylon.
The #05-98Y-14 fits lines 3/8″ to 3/4” in diameter and measures 5″ x 14″.
Ease of Installation/Removal: Chafe-Pro® is hand wrapped around the line to be protected. It can be installed on lines already in position.
No Lacing/Lashing of Lines Required: Chafe-Pro® uses a unique arrangement of nylon hooks to hold it in its protective position.
High Resistance to Abrasion: Chafe-Pro®, made from marine grade abrasion-resistant polyester and nylon textiles, is also designed to protect lines and boats from abrasion.
UV Protected: Chafe-Pro® units are resistant to damage from UV radiation.
Mildew Resistant: Chafe-Pro® units will not deteriorate from the effects of mildew.
High Flexibility: Chafe-Pro® can be installed in an eye-splice turned on a capstan or windlass, or heaved through a chock.
