QUANTUM-8

Quantum-8 is a lightweight, high-strength, torque-free 8-strand rope that utilizes Samson’s patented DPXTM fiber technology, which provides superior abrasion and cut resistance with a higher coefficient of friction than other high modulus polyethylene ropes. It floats, grips on a winch or capstan, and has excellent durability. Quantum-8 has an orange Samthane coating for high visibility as well as additional abrasion resistance.
