AmSteel-X comes standard with hi-visibility colors, permanent twist identification, length markings and a patent pending end for end indication that you can recognize at a glance. Optimized for mooring, the multi-colored strands make splicing, inspecting, and identifying wear zones easier than ever. AmSteel-X sizes are MEG-4 ready, approved, and come with MEG4 documentation. AmSteel-X is a non-rotational, torque-free, 12-strand single braid made with reduced creep Dyneema® SK78. Combined with Samson’s proprietary coating method and Samthane coating, AmSteel-X provides abrasion and tension fatigue resistance for superior wear. Increasing safety and efficiency in mooring with every improvement we make, AmSteel-X has been verified by ABS according to MEG4 and is type approved by RMRS. AmSteel-X is available with the option of sustainable, bio-sourced fiber. Now, reducing your impact on the planet doesn't mean reducing quality or sacrificing strength.

Line Design Break Force (LDBF): The minimum force that a new, dry, spliced mooring line will break when tested according to MEG4 appendix B. Linear Density (LD): Linear density of line measured at reference load.
ISO strength specifications are for unspliced rope. All other strength specifications are for spliced rope.
Samson is now sourcing Bio-based Dyneema® fiber from DSM that will be available for AmSteel®-X and other select HMPE products. This fiber is sourced from raw materials in the paper and pulp industries and utilizes the mass balance approach. Samson customers can receive more sustainable products with the same superior performance.
For over 140 years the Samson logo has been a symbol of strength. Now, reducing your impact on the planet doesn't mean reducing quality or sacrificing strength. When you see this green logo, you'll know your rope has been made using bio-sourced fiber. Ask your Samson sales representative for details.
