PROTON®-8

Product Code:830

Fiber:Dyneema® - Polyester Blend

Specific Gravity:1.09

Splice:8-Strand Class II


Proton-8 uses Dyneema® fiber for high strength and low weight, with a polyester overlay to provide the heat resistance and grip necessary for use on bitts and capstans. Its flexible, torque-free, 8-strand construction performs well on both single- and split-drum winches. Proton-8 is Samthane coated, which increases wear life.
