RP-12 NYLON

RP-12 Nylon is a round-plaited 12-strand construction of nylon, treated with our proprietary Pro-Gard marine finish. This combination provides reduced wet-strength loss, improved abrasion resistance, and high energy-absorbing properties. This firm, flexible rope provides superior handling and maximum wear. RP-12 Nylon offers excellent shock mitigation for peak dynamic loads during towing or mooring operations, and it is easily spliced using Samson's standard tuck-splice. This product design requires a specialized splicing technique. A standard cover repair kit is available and easy to use in the field.
