Samson RopesSamson Ropes- Amsteel AS-78 - 5/32" (4 mm) Blue

 


Samson Ropes AS-78 - like its counterpart 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. AS-78 is an excellent wire rope replacement with extremely low stretch and superior flex fatigue and wear resistance. It is specially designed for improved service life in applications where creep results from long-term static loads.
