Chafe-Pro, specialty manufacturers and global leaders of removable chafe-abrasion protection, is excited to roll out to the commercial marine industry their new look, some new products and feature a special event in their booth with a live stream of the NASA Orion launch and recovery. The latter being a very proud moment as Chafe-Pro designed and supplied the abrasion protection for the horse collar tow bridle being used to recover the Orion capsule from the Pacific. All attending are invited to stop by their booth 3716 on Dec. 4 to see the chafe gear prototype designed for the project and watch the live stream.  

“The last four months have been incredible for Chafe-Pro as we’ve undergone a transformation of our brand, our marketing and have seen the completion of several new products we are proud to introduce to the commercial industry at the WorkBoat Show”, commented Michael Ratigan, president of Chafe-Pro.  

“We’ve long been considered the industry leader globally in the fight against chafe abrasion and with our new look and products we’re poised to raise the bar even higher. The fact NASA demanded Chafe-Pro be used on the harness for the Orion recovery is just further validation we’re on the right track moving forward”, added Ratigan.    

Chafe-Pro has for over 20 years protected the lines of the U.S. Navy, U.S. Coast Guard and numerous shipping and towing companies around the world, saving them millions of dollars in cordage costs.
