NEUTRON-8

Neutron-8 is an excellent floating replacement for large diameter wire rope or chain. The unique patented construction results in an extremely high strength-to-weight ratio with reduced compression and less diving on winch drums. Neutron-8 is ideal for tractor-tug working lines and a variety of specialty deepwater applications where long lengths, high strength, and low weight are critical. Recommended for split- or single-drum winch applications. Not recommended for use on H-bitts, capstans, or cleats if surging or rendering the rope is required.
