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
