SAPPHIRE SEALPRO MBX is a braided netting. It is made of a combination of High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) and copolymers. The net has very high abrasion and cut resistance. The material is hydrophobic in nature so water does not enter into the fibres. It therefore retains its strength. These nets have minimal shrinkage and maintain their size and form over time.
Due to the braided construction the net is very compact and it is stiffer than regular polyethylene netting.
This stiffness helps to retain the net shape and allows better water flow and higher dissolved oxygen in the cage.
Better dimension stability reduces the load on the mooring system. This reduces the time and cost of re-tensioning the net.
This net has higher cut resistance than any nylon or polyethylene netting.
Due to its stiffness the nets are easy to clean at the site with machine or robot.
Compact braiding construction ensures against cuts or holes.
Lifetime of 7-8 years due to high wet abrasion resistance.
Lower environmental footprint than nylon. These nets have 3-4 times less CO2 emissions and particulate matter formation (PM) than nylon nets.
