RP-12 POLYESTER

RP-12 Polyester has been a standard of performance for years in the tug and mooring industry. The firm strand and smooth construction of this product with low-elongating high-tenacity polyester fiber create a durable workhorse that has excellent flex-fatigue life. The round plait construction allows this rope to conform to contact surfaces. The all-polyester fiber content creates excellent rendering capabilities while giving positive working control. For installing eye splices, RP-12 Polyester is easily spliced using Samson's standard tuck-splice.
