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 core technical reference Marlow’s Grand Prix Series offers a range of core options using Dyneema®, Vectran® and Zylon® (PBO). Each material has it’s 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...

grand prix series 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....

Stiffer than standard D12, D12 Max is taken to the limit of its physical properties during the manufacture process resulting in a rope unrivalled in strength and low elongation. Max 99 offers approximately...

grand prix series 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. Grand Prix Series covers can be specifically and uniquely customised to particular requirements using different material blend ratios and blends of 3 or even 4 materials. The properties of different materials will have varying impact on the interaction between rope & deck gear, by blending different materials in different ratios we are able to best...
