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.

Plasma® 12 strand is the highest strength synthetic rope available. Plasma® 12 strand is manufactured from High Modulus Polyethylene (HMPE) that has been enhanced by Cortland’s patented recrystallization process.

Plasma® 12 strand is delivered standard with a polyurethane finish and is easily spliced using a simple lockstitch type splice, 4-3-2 or 5-4-3 tuck splice. It’s soft, torque free braided construction provides easy handling. 

Benefits / Features
  • Lowest stretch
  • Low creep
  • Soft hand
  • Torque free
  • Easy splicing
  • Neutrally buoyant in water
  • Select sizes are ABS & DNV type approved

Plasma® 12×12 is a 12-strand braided rope in which each of the 12 strands is, in turn, a 12-strand rope, or braided primary strand. Plasma is manufactured from High Modulus Polyethylene (HMPE) that has been enhanced by Cortland’s patented recrystallization process.

This patented construction addresses the most critical properties of the fibers to provide a very high strength translation efficiency for larger ropes. This design allows for long lay lengths, making rope that is more flexible for bending applications, easy to inspect and can be quickly spliced using standard 12 strand splicing techniques. Plasma 12×12 is supplied with our standard polyurethane finish, although other coatings can be applied to suit specific applications.

Benefits / Features
  • World’s strongest rope for its weight
  • Long lengths available
  • High flex fatigue and abrasion resistance
  • Easy to splice, inspect, and repair
  • Neutrally buoyant in water
  • Select sizes are ABS & DNV type approved
