Proton-8 is made with HMPE fiber for high strength and low weight and has 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.
