Amsteel Blue

Amsteel Blue is a torque-free 12-strand single braid that size for size, is as strong as steel but outlasts wire 3:1, making it an excellent wire rope replacement. At only 1/7th the weight of wire, it is a safe and efficient solution for all marine applications where wire is traditionally used. The combination of Dyneema fiber and Samthane coating provide abrasion and tension fatigue resistance for superior wear. Amsteel Blue is easily spliced and inspected.

Amsteel blue is recommended for split-drum winch applications. It is not recommended for use on H-bitts, capstans, or cleats if surging or rendering the rope is required.
