IronLite HMPE 12-Strand Rope - Miami Cordage

Products

IronLite is Miami Cordage’s strongest synthetic rope, made from UHWMPE fibers. It is a 12-strand single braid, non-rotational rope that, size for size, is the same strength as steel. IronLite has a specific gravity of 0.98, allowing it to float yet it will not absorb water and is UV resistant. UHWMPE fiber ropes have a life span that is typically three times longer than wire rope, making it an excellent wire rope replacement. IronLite has extremely low stretch, superior flex fatigue and wear resistance. It is a high performance rope and useful with high load applications where ease of handling is important and where wire rope is not practical.

Features

    • Safer and lighter than wire rope, no wire splinters
    • Does not kink and easy to handle
    • UV resistant and non-rotational
    • Easy to terminate and splice
    • Standard color: Blue, other colors available on request
    • Extremely low stretch and will outlast wire rope

Applications

    • Competition grade running rigging
    • Trawl and bridle lines
    • Wire replacement – non jacketed and low stretch support lines
    • High performance tug lines
    • Climbing and rigging accessories
    • Pulling and stringing lines
    • Winch lines, general working lines and rig tow lines

      Compliance to the above specifications is based upon testing according to the Cordage Institute Standard Testing Methods for Fiber Rope and/or ASTM D-4268 Standard Methods of Testing Fiber Ropes.

      Weights: Are average and may vary +/- 5%.

      Tensile strengths: Are approximate average for new, unused ropes. To estimate the minimum tensile strength of a new rope, reduce the approximate average by 15% (Cordage Institute defines minimum tensile strength as two standard deviations below the average tensile strength of the rope).
