Samson Offers Literature On Synthetic Ropes

The latest technology f r om synthetic fiber research by Samson Ocean Systems, Inc. has resulted in a double-braided rope with the u n i q u e c o m b i n a t i o n of h i gh strength and low stretch. The new generation fiber is c a l l ed Duron II, and is now being used in Samson Stable Braid, an all polyester rope used extensively for utility winch lines, tug headlines, and ship's spring lines.

Stable Braid with Duron II offers highest strength for an all polyester rope, very low stretch over normal working load ranges, improved energy absorption during shock loadings and significantly improved abrasion resistance.

This new rope is expected to replace wire in many applications because of these features.

Examples reported are: Stable Braid with Duron II of 3-inch circumference (1-inch diameter) with a tensile of 36,000 and elastic elongation of 2.0 percent at 15 percent load. A 6-inch circumference (2-inch diameter) Duron II rope provides a tensile rate of 118,000 pounds and elastic elongation of 2.4 percent at 20 percent load.

Stable Braid with Duron II is identified by a Samson BlueMark tracer and is now available in sizes f r om ^ - i n c h diameter to 21- inch circumference, with tensile r a t i n g s f r o m 2,600 pounds to 1,150,000 pounds.
