Plasma 12 Strand

Plasma 12 Strand is the highest strength synthetic rope available. Plasma 12 Strand is manufacture from High Modules Polyethylene (HMPE) that had been enhanced by Cortland's patented re crystallization process. This process is especially effective in medium to large diameter ropes where strengths are over 50% higher and creep is significantly less than that of standard Spectra 12 Strand.

Plasma 12 Strand is delivered standard with a polyurethane finish and is easily spliced using simple lockstitch type splice, 4-3-2 or 5-4-3 Tuck Splice. Its soft, torque free braided construction provides easy handling.

Type approved product

Tensile Strength are determined in accordance with Cordage Institute 1500.2. Test Methods for Fiber Rope. Minimum Tensile Strength(MTS) published assumes spliced eye termination at each end of the rope.  Weights actually calculated at linear density understated preload (200d2) plus 4%. Diameter and circumference size published is nominal and reflects rope size after loading (10 cycles) to 50% of MTS. 

Plasma 12 Strand is the highest strength synthetic rope available. Manufactured from high performance Honeywell Spectra 900 Fiber, this unique product has been enhanced by Cortland’s patented recrystallization process. Plasma 12 Strand braided into Cortland’s patented 12x12 construction, created a torque-free rope at unappalled strength for its weights.

Plasma is equal or greater strength to wire rope size for size, yet is significantly lighter making handling much easier. Plasma lines offer superior flexibility and are easy to inspect; they will also not rust, corrode or fish-hook as wire rope can. Cortland’s Plasma winch lines spool even and pull off the drum easier than steel making them strong, safe, and reliable every time.



  • Equal or greater strength for wire rope SIZE FOR SIZE
  • Significantly lighter than wire, reducing handling weight
  • Reduced risk of recoil if failure should occur
  • Easier on the hands.  Increasing safety and comfort
  • RFID capability



  • Increased productivity
  • Increased efficiency
  • Safer operations
  • Ultimately, increased profitability
