Samson AmSteel AS-78 – like its counterpart AmSteel®Blue – is a torque-free, 12-strand single braid that yields the maximum in strength-to-weight ratio and, size-for-size, is the same strength as steel, yet it floats.
AS-78 is an excellent wire rope replacement with extremely low stretch and superior flex fatigue and wear resistance. It is specially designed for improved service life in applications where creep results from long-term static loads. Adding a cover is recommended for areas handled by winch or rope clutches.
