SpecTwelve

100% Spectra 12-Strand

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

Spectwelve utilizes Allied's SpectraŽ fiber in a twelve strand construction for a firm, round, and torque-free rope. Spectwelve provides strength and elongation characteristics similar to steel wire rope at a fraction of the weight.

Compliance to the above specifications is based upon testing according to the Cordage Institute Standard Testing Methods for Fiber Rope and/or ASTM D-4268 Standard Methods of Testing Fiber Ropes.
Weights - Are average and may vary +/- 5%
Tensile strengths - Are approximate average for new, unused ropes. To estimate the minimum tensile strength of a new rope, reduce the approximate average by 15% (Cordage Institute defines minimum tensile strength as two standard deviations below the average tensile strength of the rope).

WORKING ELONGATION

SUNLIGHT/UV:

Minimum degradation from UV and aging.

CHEMICALS:

Good resistance to most minerals / organics, acids, weak alkalis. Excellent resistance to bleaches and other oxidizing agents and most solvents.

HEAT:

Melting point of 300°F, progressive strength loss above 150°F. Due to the relatively low melting temperature of Spectra as compared to other synthetic fibers, care must be taken when using ropes of 100% Spectra fiber to avoid damage due to frictional heat build-up. Examples include rendering the rope around a moving capstan or gypsy head, or running the rope over a fixed surface.

DIELECTRICS:

Good resistance to the passage of electrical current. However in rope form, dirt, surface contaminants, water entrapment and the like can significantly affect dielectric properties. Extreme caution should be exercise any time a rope is in the proximity of live circuits.

SHEAVES:

Recommended D/d ratio is 8:1

WORKING LOADS:

No blanket working load recommendation can be made because it depends on the application and conditions of use, especially potential danger to personnel. It is recommended that the user establish working loads and safety factors based on professional and experienced assessments of risks. The working load is a guideline for the use of a rope in good condition for non-critical applications and should be reduced where life, limb, or valuable property is involved, or exceptional service such as shock, sustained loading, severe vibration, etc. The Cordage Institute specifies that the Safe Working Load of a rope shall be determined by dividing the Minimum Tensile Strength by the Safety Factor. Safety factors range from 5 to 12 for non-critical uses, 15 for life lines.

COATING:

Can be Urethane coated to improve abrasion resistance, UV resistance and to create a water barrier.
