AMSTEEL®-BLUE

AmSteel®-Blue is a torque-free, 12-strand single braid that yields the maximum in strength-to-weight ratio and, size-for-size, is the same strength as steel—yet it floats. AmSteel®Blue is an excellent wire rope replacement with extremely low stretch, and superior flex fatigue and wear resistance.

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. Load Bearing Linear Density (LBLD): Linear density of load bearing member of the line, measured at reference load per CI-1500A.
