Round Plait Ultra Blue

A firm twelve-strand braided rope construction that has high strength and floats. The distinct blue color is created by our exclusive copolymer Ultra Blue™ olefin fiber. This product has maximum wear life due to the firm round flexibility of the construction and the superior wear resistance of our proprietary fiber. The product's wear life is further enhanced due to our SL-5 ultraviolet inhibitor which maximizes the rope's resistance to sunlight degradation. All Round Plait™ ropes are easily spliced using a standard tuck splice procedure.

Characteristics:

High strength floating rope
Excellent resistance to ultraviolet light
Flexible non-rotating rope
Superior wear life

Applications:

Mooring Line
Floating Tow Line
Tie-Up Lines

AmSteel

High molecular weight polyethylene (HMWPE) fibers and the processing of them into rope constructions has gone through various evolutions of development during the recent past. Our plying and braiding tension control procedures now allow us to offer an HMWPE braid that maximizes strand wear life and product strength while minimizing stretch. Due to slight but constant process and product improvements we have chosen to rename an already proven product to better reflect the company that produces it and its physical capabilities. Spectron 12 has now been renamed AmSteel® to represent The American Group and the strength of steel the product yields.

AmSteel® is a twelve-strand braided rope of tension-set Parallay® construction of HMWPE fiber with our proprietary Samthane™ urethane coating. It is a non-rotational rope that yields extremely high strength and low stretch equivalent to wire rope with seven times less weight. Combined with its flex-fatigue and service life durability, AmSteel® outlasts wire rope and has none of the handling and safety issues associated with wire rope.

Characteristics:

Extremely high strength and low stretch
Lightweight and flexible
Superior wear life
Accommodates 8:1 D/d sheave ratio
Excellent dielectric properties

Applications:

Mooring Lines
Face and Wing Wires
Tug Assist Lines
Winch Lines
Pulling Lines
Specialty Rigging Lines
Wire Rope Replacement

AmSteel Blue

Synthetic fiber and rope design and processing technology have continuously made major strides in development to create synthetic rope products that constantly surpass previously established plateaus of performance. The development of ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) fiber and our tension-set processing procedure has created an added plus to the continuing replacement of wire rope and its associated disadvantages. Based on our processing improvements and the final rope's performance characteristics we are re-naming Spectron 12 Plus to AmSteel®-Blue which is more reflective of The American Group and the rope's performance.

AmSteel®-Blue is the latest development of UHMWPE fiber in a twelve-strand braided rope utilizing tension-set Parallay® design with our proprietary blue Samthane™ urethane coating. This twelve-strand braided rope yields the maximum in strength to weight ratio and is stronger than wire rope constructions - yet it floats. The other major advantage AmSteel®-Blue offers is it also has the best flex-fatigue and wear resistance compared to products made of HMWPE or post-drawn HMWPE fibers. The product's light weight, flexibility, and fast, easy splicing make it truly a unique product.

Characteristics:

Maximum strength to weight ratio
Lowest stretch twelve-strand
Highest wear and flex-fatigue life
Non-rotational
Floats
Fast adn easy to splice
40% to 50% stronger than AmSteel™

Applications:

Mooring Lines
Tug Assist Lines
Face and Wing Wires
Seismic Tow Lines
Winch Lines
Pulling Lines
Specialty Rigging Lines
Wire Rope Replacement
