Cortland Toro™ 12×12 Strand Rope

Toro™ 12×12 is a 12-strand braided rope in which each of the 12 strands is, in turn, a 12-strand rope, or braided primary strand.

Toro is manufactured from high tenacity High Modulus Polyethylene (HMPE).

This patented construction addresses the most critical properties of the fibers to provide a very high strength translation efficiency for larger ropes. This design allows for long lay lengths, making rope that is more flexible for bending applications, easy to inspect, and can be quickly spliced using standard 12 strand splicing techniques. Toro 12×12 is supplied with our standard polyurethane finish, although other coatings can be applied to suit specific applications.

Size: Diameter and circumference are nominal. A new unused rope in relaxed state will measure larger; loading and use compacts ropes, sets splices and lessens rope size.

Weights: Published weights of sizes 1-5/8″– 4-1/4″ diameter are calculated at linear density under stated preload (200d²) plus 4%.

Tensile Strengths: Tensile strength determined in accordance with Cordage Institute 1500‑02 Test Methods for Fiber Ropes and ISO 2307.
