SATURN-12

Since its introduction, Samson’s 12-strand working line, Saturn-12, has proven to be one of the longest lasting, most durable marine ropes available, increasing residual strength as much as 15-20% when compared with other HMPE lines and their conventional coatings. Its proprietary coating improves abrasion resistance and has been enhanced for greater UV resistance. Saturn-12 is made with Dyneema® SK78 fiber, which provides improved service life in applications where creep results from long-term static loads. This torque-free, flexible, and easy-to-handle construction is easy to inspect and splice in the field.
