SP 12

Primarily used in long length conducer pulling machinery
SP-12 is a 12-strand blended rope comprised of Honeywell Spectra® fiber and polyester. This rope is designed to take advantage of the high-strength and low-elongation properties of Spectra fibers, while providing a slightly lower price point than 100% Spectra ropes. The primary market opportunity is for long length conducer pulling machinery.

This rope can also be used in any application where 100% Spectra does not fit the need and 100% polyester is limited in selection as well. The rope is available in any of our Maxijacket High Performance colors which will be supplied as a standard coating. This product is identified by the addition of blue polyester fiber in the strand bundle of yarn.

* Knots and abrupt bends significantly reduce the strength of all ropes and lower maximum working load.

** Working load is based on static or moderately dynamic lifting/pulling operations. Instantaneous changes in load, up or down, in excess of 10% of the rope’s rated working load constitute hazardous shock load and would void the normal working load recommendation. Consult Yale Cordage for guidelines for working loads and the safe use of the rope.
