Product information

The technology behind this innovative solution lies in the energy absorption properties of the SBA core of the rope. If the load bearing construction breaks, the SBA will absorb the snap back forces, resulting in a reduction of snap back. With safety measures like Timm™ Master 12 SBA, you can mitigate risks to personnel during mooring operations, creating a safer mooring environment.

Timm Master 12 SBA is a mixed polymer rope solution, using the same material composition as our best-selling premium Timm Master 8 combined with Timm Snap Back Arrestor for improved safety when mooring.

Timm Master ropes are used by some of the world's largest shipping companies. This is a flexible and easily handled product made from polyolefin yarn and high tenacity polyester, with 18% elongation at break. The colour scheme and layout of the braiding gives an anti-twist visual indicator showing the crew if the rope is twisted. By preventing twist in the rope, you can improve the strength and life span.

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.
