Tech 12


Tech 12™ is a twelve-strand single braid of Technora® fiber with Samthane™ urethane coating. The product has higher strength and lower stretch than other products constructed of other types of high modulus aramid fibers. The Samthane™ coating creates enhanced wear resistance but allows very fast splicing capability. Tech 12™ has extremely good heat resistance and flex fatigue service life. Its extremely high strength and low stretch offer the opportunity of replacing wire rope in static applications.
