ML-12 stringing line for utility rope market
Samson is launching its newest 12-strand stringing line, incorporating Innegra-S fiber.
Ferndale, Wash, April 28, 2010—Samson is launching its newest 12-strand stringing line, incorporating Innegra-S fiber. ML-12 is Samson’s newest 12-strand stringing line, blending Innegra-S, a high modulus polypropylene (HMPP), and Dyneema, a high modulus polyethylene (HMPE). This blend of fibers gives ML-12 performance characteristics between traditional polyesters and high-performance 100 percent Dyneema stringing lines.
Because ML-12 offers lighter weight and higher strength at the same diameter as traditional polyester lines, it can be used on existing equipment for heavier pulls, or it is possible to downsize the line on equipment to pull the same load and store longer lengths on the reel. Furthermore, ML-12 also offers improved elongation over traditional polyester lines.
“This product will allow users to get more out of their existing equipment. In applications where the operator needs more versatility, ML-12 provides a new upgrade option,” says Michael Quinn, sales director of Samson’s industrial division. “We believe ML-12 fills the performance gap between the traditional polyester lines and full HMPE products. Operators who need more than polyester can provide, can now turn to ML-12.”
