Plasma® 12-Strand is made up of 12 twisted strands, 6 right-handed and 6 left-handed, which when braided together, create a torque neutral construction. During processing, a polyurethane coating is added to provide protection against application hazards such as abrasion. The finished Plasma is very durable, more cut resistant than other synthetic ropes, and has a very soft hand. It also has excellent bending flex fatigue—far superior to wire rope. It is extremely flexible and conforms easily to surfaces when under load.
