The steelsafe 78 product offers an exceptional strength of weight ratio. The 12 strand construction retains its flexibility while being easily handled and can be accommodated on most winch systems. The addition of the XBO coating allows for reduced friction and the associated heat build up in larger ropes.

The 12 strand Dyneema® product range has been designed specifically for use in a commercial marine environment. The design has been optimised to prioritise break load. This therefore results in a rope of nominal diameter as measured under a reference tension measured by a minimum break load. The XBO coating ensures that the individual yarns are protected against fibre abrasion and therefore is well suited to cyclical bending to reduce heat build-up.
