Product information

Timm Master 12 SBA is a mixed polymer rope solution, using the
same material composition as our most-selling premium Timm
Master 8 combined with Timm Snapback Arrestor for improved
safety when mooring. Our Timm Master ropes are supplying
some of the world's largest shipping companies. This is a flexible
and easily handled product made from polyolefn yarn and high
tenacity polyester, with 18% elongation at break.
When a mooring rope breaks, the snap back of the rope can cause dangerous situations. In the worst cases, snap back of a
mooring rope can hurt the crew onboard or people standing on
land. Timm have developed a state-of-the-art snapback arrestor
which reduces the snapback if a rope breaks. It works by having
an elongating core, and will delay the snapback forces if the
main rope breaks. The snapback arrestor is optimized to the
rope diameter and strength, to mitigate the severe risk of
The anti-twisting colors of the mooring rope will help the crew to
determine if the rope is twisting, which might be negative for the
strength and lifetime of the rope. Timm Master 12 SBA has very
good abrasion resistance, having high tenacity polyester in the
outer parts of the strands. The product is buoyant with excellent
UV resistance. Having one of the best strength-to-weight ratios
on the market, this rope will serve as a light-weight and reliable
solution, suitable for all vessel types.
