Cortland Plasma® 12 Strand Rope

Plasma® 12 strand is the highest strength synthetic rope available. Plasma 12 strand is manufactured from High Modulus Polyethylene (HMPE) that has been enhanced by Cortland’s patented recrystallization process.

Plasma 12 strand is delivered standard with a polyurethane finish and is easily spliced using a simple lockstitch type splice, 4-3-2 or 5-4-3 tuck splice. Its soft, torque free braided construction provides easy handling.

Tensile strengths are determined in accordance with Cordage Institute 1500.2. Test Methods for Fiber Rope. Minimum Tensile Strength (MTS) published assumes spliced eye terminations at each end of the rope. Weights actually calculated at linear density under stated preload (200d2 ) plus 4%. Diameter and circumference size published is nominal and reflects rope size after loading (10 cycles) to 50% of MTS. See reverse side for application and safety information.
