- Improved performance over other standard HMPE ropes
- Replaces wire rope size for size at 1/7th the weight
- A torque-free, flexible, and easy to handle construction
- Easy to inspect and splice in the field
- Ship-assist lines
- Rig tow lines
- Tractor tug winch main lines/pendants
- Face and wing wires for push tugs
Saturn-12 represents the next generation in Samson’s 12-strand working lines made with Dyneema® Fiber Saturn-12 has an enhanced coating that improves abrasion resistance and increases residual strength as much as 15–20% when compared with other HMPE lines and their conventional coatings.
Saturn-12’s light weight, high strength, and low stretch makes it ideal for quick, efficient connections and controlled response. Saturn-12 has been tested in extreme conditions and is proven to provide a longer service life while reducing costs when compared to standard HMPE ropes available today.
A compliment to other Samson working lines like AmSteel®-Blue and Quantum-12, Saturn-12 is recommended for tug working lines on drums and as a pendant in ship-assist work. It is not recommended for use on H-bitts, capstans, or cleats due to its very low coefficient of friction.
