What You Should Know About the Strength of Amsteel Blue

Not all cordage is created equal. There are plenty of synthetic winch rope options available, but you need to be able to trust that your cordage will be up to the task time and time again. You need to be able to trust that your cordage will not snap when stretched and will be able to stand up to being used in many different rigs. Amsteel Blue offers a durable option with a strength that meets or exceeds that of wire rope. What rigging technician wouldn’t want to take advantage of that? 

So what makes Amsteel Blue so special? Here we will dissect this incredibly versatile synthetic rope to uncover the aspects that make this cordage so strong. 

Strength in Durability

One of the biggest positives of Amsteel Blue is just how durable it is. This 12-strand single braid of Dyneema fibers has an incredibly low stretch, meaning the fibers are not subjected to constant contracting and expanding along with the fatigue this causes. The fibers themselves are wear-resistant as well. The flex fatigue of Amsteel Blue is second to none, making it the best option available for both complex and high-volume applications. This sort of versatility cannot be ignored when one is considering the right rigging cordage for them.

Raw Strength

Not only is Amsteel Blue durable in a way that most cordage options just can not measure up to. 

Size for size, Amsteel Blue is as strong as steel. 

That is not an exaggeration. Amsteel Blue is capable of being used in place of wire rope. This sort of strength in a relatively lightweight option can help in a myriad of different situations. Amsteel Blue is a synthetic winch rope that can do so much more.

Versatility as a Strength

Amsteel Blue is incredibly versatile. It can easily be used in both land and marine applications. Amsteel Blue floats, giving those working in docks and bays a great option to secure, tow and complete their other tasks just as easily as the cordage can be used in different applications on land.
