Recognized worldwide as the standard for single braid HMPE ropes, AmSteel®-Blue is easily spliced and inspected. These features, with the superior wear and tension fatigue of Dyneema® SK-75 fiber and Samthane coating, are combined in a torque-free 12-strand single braid design. The result is an industry leading braided synthetic rope that outlasts wire rope and has proven operator cost saving benefits.

AmSteel®-Blue, at only 1/7th the weight of wire, requires less committed crew for most operations, significantly reduces mooring times and tug costs, and improves crew safety. The reduced weight, high strength and low stretch also make it ideal for tug assist/maneuvering lines, resulting in quick, efficient connections and controlled response. AmSteel®-Blue is proven to provide longer service life and reduced costs when compared to wire in a variety of applications.

Standardized working pendants are available for mooring and tug assist lines. AmSteel®-Blue is recommended for split drum winch applications, not recommended for use on H-bitts, capstans or cleats if surging or rendering the rope is required.
