COMPANY PROFILE QUALITY, INNOVATION, TECHNICAL EXCELLENCE In 1807 Thomas Burfield opened his rope factory in Hailsham, East Sussex and, over 200 years later, Marlow Ropes continue to manufacture ropes on the same site. In the mid 1950’s Burfield and Son’s was incorporated into the expanding Hawkins and Tipson Rope Group, founded by George Hawkins and Alfred Tipson in 1881. At this time, the factory in Hailsham was one of the first in the world to be manufacturing synthetic fibre ropes. These ropes were specifically made for the yachting industry under the new "Marlow" brand. These new nylon...

GRAND PRIX SERIES GRAND PRIX SERIES The Grand Prix Series uses the highest performance materials such as Dyneema® SK99, Zylon®, Technora®, Kevlar® Teflon® and Zyex®. These materials offer attributes to covers and cores such as higher strength, improved abrasion resistance, better thermal properties, higher (or lower) friction and improved winch handling properties. In the Maxi72 class, development is key to success and you have to constantly push forward in all areas. Running rigging is often over looked and the possible gains are underestimated. Working with Marlow from the beginning of...

GRAND PRIX SERIES CORE TECHNICAL REFERENCE Marlow’s Grand Prix Series offers a range of core options using Dyneema®, Vectran® and Zylon® (PBO). Each material has its own particular strengths and weaknesses. Dyneema® offers by far the best strength to weight ratio of any material used in rope manufacture and is the material of choice for high performance cores. At Marlow we offer a range of Dyneema® cores to suit strength and handling preferences as well as budget. Dyneema® is an Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) and is available in a number of different grades. All grades of...

MATERIAL ELONGATION COMPARISON GRAPHS When elongation is measured as a % of break load (fig. 4), it is shown that whilst Zylon® offers the lowest elongation followed by Dyneema® in D12 Max and then D12, there is no differential between SK78 and SK99. However, when elongation is measured at a given load (for example 4,000kg), which is more relevant to specifying rope for on board applications (fig.5), it can be seen that the advantages of SK99 over SK78 in terms of elongation are clear. This is because the rope is working at a lower percentage of the its break load. However, as Dyneema...

GRAND PRIX SERIES SK99 BREAK LOAD (kg) SK78 BREAK LOAD (kg) WEIGHT kg/100m DIAMETER (mm) BREAK LOAD (kg) WEIGHT kg/100m M-Rig Max's top benefit is minimal creep ideal for standing rigging and steering lines. Add an MGP cover or light weight chafe cover for high wear applications such as life lines. See page 31 for more details on M-Rig Max. For high-load, diameter or safety critical applications, D12 Max is the only choice, either covered or uncovered. Stiffer than standard D12, D12 Max is taken to the limit of its physical properties during the manufacture process resulting in a rope...

COVER TECHNOLOGY The interaction between core, cover and deck gear are fundamental elements of a rope's performance. The Grand Prix Series blends technical materials to impart application specific properties to the cover. The properties of different materials will have a varying impact on the interaction between rope & deck gear, by blending different materials in different ratios we are able to best utilize these material properties to produce the perfect rope performance. The data on page 13 details our standard blend covers & their relative performance in terms of abrasion resistance,...

GRAND PRIX SERIES COVERS MGP RACING 100 MGP PBO 50    X^LUn 24 Plait, 100% Polyester cover offers good allround performance. Cost effective option for general purpose lines subjected to relatively low heat and abrasion. 24 Plait, 100% PBO has outstanding heat & abrasion resistance properties for high load, high temperature applications. Use for runners and high load sheets where winch easing is of particular importance. 24 Plait PBO & Polyester blend offers higher heat & abrasion resistance than MGP Tech 50, but at the expense of grip. More turns required on the winch, but will ease...
