ACERA AMUNDSEN LITE

Acera Amundsen Lite is a 12-strand HMPE composite rope made from HMPE yarns with additional lightweight polyolefin fibers.

Product information

Acera Amundsen Lite reduces the gap between the ultra light high performance ropes and less costly ropes made from 100% traditional fibers or steel.
This rope is based on the DNV GL type approved 12-strand Acera Amundsen HMPE rope, with additional lightweight polyolefin fibers. Acera Amundsen Lite is significantly stronger than polyester and nylon ropes, with better abrasion resistance and is 70 - 75% lighter than nylon ropes of the equivalent strength. Every yarn is individually coated through a rotating 360° Lick-roller process. This cumbersome single yarn coating process demonstrates the uncompromising commitment to the quality standards of Acera. Single yarn coating is proven to significantly enhance internal and external abrasion resistance, and extend service life and strength. 12-strand ropes are regarded as the best rope construction, which has become the most common construction for high performance ropes. When replacing conventional fiber ropes, the reduction in diameter leads to significant savings in weight, space and handling. This reduces the total time required for mooring operations and fuel consumption. The lightweight, strong Acera Amundsen Lite is available at a market competitive price, lowering the initial price gap between high performance fiber ropes and wire ropes.
