FEATURED PLASMA ROPES & PLASMA SLINGS
When compared to wire rope slings, Lift-It® UHMPE Rope
Slings utilizing Cortland’s Plasma® technology have:
• Superior strength-to-weight ratio.
• Excellent bending fatigue.
• Similar elongation properties.
• Will not sink, UHMPE slings float!
• 1/7 the weight of wire rope slings.
• Do not corrode or require lubrication.
• Easy to inspect.
Plasma rope slings NOW available in adjustable models. Please contact for details and pricing.
Super strong, ultra-light Lift-It® UHMPE Rope Slings have similar elongation properties but are 1/7 the weight of heavy, cumbersome wire rope slings. UHMPE Rope Slings also offer the advantages of flexibility as well as the absence of lubricants and corrosion when compared to wire rope slings. Unlike wire rope slings, UHMPE Rope Slings are neutrally buoyant for ease of handling in diving, salvage, maintenance and marine construction activities for oil, gas and
alternative energy companies.
• Lift-It® UHMPE Rope Slings do not absorb water and sling capacity is not reduced while wet.
• UHMPE Rope Slings are easy to inspect when compared to rigid wire rope slings and roundslings.
• External and internal wear is more readily identifiable with 12 x 12 braided strand UHMPE Rope Slings.
• UHMPE Rope Slings have recommended usage diameters that have been validated through destruction testing.
Cortland Plasma® Rope, 12 strand construction is the highest strength
synthetic rope available. Cortland Plasma® 12 strand rope is
manufactured from Ultra High Modulus Polyethylene
UHMPE) that has been enhanced by Cortland’s
patented recrystallization process.
Cortland Plasma® 12 strand is delivered standard with a
polyurethane finish and is easily spliced using a
simple lockstitch type splice, 4-3-2 or 5-4-3 tuck
splice. Its soft, torque free braided construction
provides easy handling.
Plasma® rope 12x12 is a 12-strand braided rope
in which each of the 12 strands is, in turn, a
12-strand rope, or braided primary strand.
Plasma® is manufactured from High Modulus
Polyethylene (HMPE) that has been enhanced by
Cortland’s patented recrystallization process.
This patented construction addresses the most
critical properties of the fibers to provide a very
high strength translation efficiency for larger ropes.
This design allows for long lay lengths, making
rope that is more flexible for bending applications,
easy to inspect, and can be quickly spliced using
standard 12 strand splicing techniques. Plasma®
12x12 is supplied with our standard polyurethane
finish, although other coatings can be applied to suit
PROLINE12™ Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE), also known as HMPE (High Modulus PolyEthylene). UHMWPE Ropes are valued for their performance in vehicle recovery, industrial & marine applications, performance yachting, aquaculture, commercial fishing, and PROLINE12™ can be the ideal substitute for wire rope. PROLINE12™ UHWMPE ropes have long been used for mooring of Tanker vessels, as pennant lines for offshore rigs, tow hawsers, ship assist lines and more.
Cortland D/T Composite is a double braided rope with
the inner core made of Plasma® and the outer
sleeve of polyester. Cortland D/T Composite has very low
elongation, high strength and the feel and handling
of polyester double braid. It is identified with three
external black markers.
Cortland D/T Composite is delivered standard with an
overlay marine finish and is available on special
order with a spliceable polyurethane finish in clear
or any of six colors.
