What is WEB-TEC Chafe Gear?

WEB-TEC chafe gear is an extremely abrasion resistant ballistic chafe sleeve that can be easily adjusted and/or moved on synthetic ropes, used by hundreds of marine towing companies around the world. WEB-TEC can also be found on our own Navy’s “T-AKE” Vessels and Heavy Lift Ships. Our chafe gear is extremely light weight, buoyant, and comes in two grades: WT-grade or EX-grade.

WEB-TEC offers many advantages over standard chafe gear. Its inherent “memory” combats sleeve binding and its urethane coated inside and industrial grade exterior nylon cover greatly reduce friction and wear. With numerous advantages over the average line protection system, it’s hard to go wrong with WEB-TEC chafe gear.

WT Grade:

Offers a durable ballistic material design with ease of removal. All WT chafe sleeves float!


(Extreme) Features a “double locking” hook and loop closure system that more than triples the shear strength of the sleeve. The cover is made of a high grade woven fabric that offers superior abrasion resistance.

  • Tips for Caring for Wire Rope
    Make sure that ropes are adequately lubricated. With use and time, the lubrication that came preinstalled in the rope begins to evaporate and dry out. As this begins to happen, ropes become easily breakable. Chafe gear and rigging gear become damaged when working with ropes that do not have adequate lubrication.
