Mining Tow Lines
When heavy equipment becomes stuck in the mud, mine productivity goes down. Recovering the vehicle can be a difficult and dangerous process. Cortland’s patented Plasma® HMPE (High Modulus PolyEythelene) synthetic fiber has been successfully out-performing and replacing steel wire rope in lifting and towing applications for more than 20 years. Unlike wire rope, Plasma® will not rust or corrode and has much better bend and tension-tension fatigue. These synthetic fiber solutions offer the same strength and elongation characteristics as wire with only 1/7th the weight.
Cortland has also partnered with Applied Fiber to develop a stay cable which greatly increases mine worker safety and productivity. The jacketed Plasma® Haul Truck Tie-back Cables are designed and built specifically to keep a truck bed open during maintenance.

Vehicle Recovery Tow Lines from Cortland replace wire rope through the use of modern high modulus synthetic fibers in a torque-free braided rope construction. Sling strengths are available from 23Te to 425Te. Secure protected factory-splice eye terminations are on each end of the certified and tagged tow sling. All Plasma® Vehicle Recovery Tow Slings conform to ASME and OSHA synthetic fiber sling standards as well as other global certifications such as DNV.
