Quantum 12

A lightweight, high-strength rope that grips hardware

Quantum-12 is a lightweight, high-strength, floating rope that can grip on a capstan or H-bitt. The patented DPX™ yarn provides superior abrasion and cut resistance, but with a higher coefficient of friction other high modulus polyethylene ropes. The 12-strand construction provides added flexibility, improved handling, and easy splicing. The vivid green Samthane coating provides excellent visibility and additional abrasion resistance.
