    Information on Tensile Strength VS Working Load.


    • Samson AS-78 Dyneema (like its counterpart Samson AmSteel® Blue) is a torque-free, 12-strand single braid that yields the maximum in strength-to-weight ratio and, size-for-size, is the same strength as steel, yet it floats
    • AS-78 is an excellent wire rope replacement with extremely low stretch and superior flex fatigue and wear resistance
