TURBO-DPX

Turbo-DPXTM uses a 12-strand core combined with a proprietary braided jacket design of Dyneema® and polyester fibers. The cover and 12-strand core of Dyneema® are bonded to minimize movement between the two components. Samson's patented use of DPXTM fiber technology creates a very firm, round rope that will have minimal flattening under load, and little tendency to dive or jam on winch drums. Turbo-DPXTM was designed to replace wire rope on winch drums but not to serve as a marine working rope. This firm construction works extremely well as a mooring or winch line. This product design requires a specialized splicing technique. A standard cover repair kit is available and easy to use in the field. Turbo-DPXTM has been verified by ABS according to MEG4, and is type approved by ABS.
