How can Maritime Application Rope Savers be helpful?

Fluoron’s Maritime Application Rope Savers (M.A.R.S.™) bridge the gap between brand new, high-tech synthetic lines and worn deck equipment. Synthetic lines are safer, lighter, faster, and can have the same tensile strength as wire rope. Though a worthwhile investment, synthetic lines can be quickly damaged by weathered and worn deck equipment. M.A.R.S.™ solves this problem! M.A.R.S.™ is essentially a cover that installs directly over your worn and weathered deck equipment. Made of the world’s toughest plastic – M.A.R.S.™ provides a smooth, durable, corrosion-resistant surface. With Fluoron’s M.A.R.S.™ on your deck equipment, the advantages of synthetic rope really shine!

Advantages of Fluoron’s Maritime Application Rope Savers:

• Eliminates line chafing
• Restores rusted deck equipment to a wear-resistant surface
• Prevents corrosion, therefore eliminating line chafing
• Eliminates maintenance; stays clean
• One-time installation takes just minutes
