Purple Rope – Strongest Rope For Its Weight
Purple Plasma Rope is stronger than steel wire rope of equivalent diameter yet it maintains roughly 1/7th the weight and floats. It is also very low stretch and low creep. Plasma® 12 strand makes an excellent alternative to wire rope in most Lifting, Mooring, and Winch applications.
