Lightweight, high strength rope that grips H-bitts and capstans
Quantum-8 was developed to meet customer requests for a lightweight, high strength, torque-free rope that can float and grip a winch or capstan. Lighter and stronger than Proton-8, Quantum-8 is a unique upgrade. This patented construction utilizes Samson’s exclusive DPX® fiber technology. Quantum-8 has a comparable grip to Proton-8, but unlike Proton-8, it floats. Samson’s proven DPX® fiber technology has the best abrasion and cut resistance of all high-performance fibers, so rope durability is excellent. Quantum-8 has multiple marine uses. It can be used as a high-performance tug working line, a floating tug stern line, a typhoon or vessel mooring line, an offshore messenger, or a pick-up line. Quantum-89 has an orange urethane coating for high visibility as well as additional abrasion resistance
