Product 1 Example - "SATURN 12"

The next generation in Samson’s 12-strand working lines made with Dyneema®, Saturn-12 has an enhanced coating that improves abrasion resistance and increases residual strength as much as 15–20% when compared to standard HMPE lines available today.

Features:
  • Made with Dyneema® fiber
  • New Samthane Type E coating increases residual strength as much as 15–20%
  • 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
  • Floats
Applications:
  • 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.
