Acera Amundsen is a 12 strand high performance rope made from the genuine Acera HMPE yarns, with the unique super eye in both ends with mesh and hollow braided protection.
Acera Amundsen is a DNV GL type approved 12 strand high performance rope made from genuine Acera HMPE yarns, which 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, and has become the most common construction for HMPE ropes.
Acera Amundsen is the alternative to the cumbersome steel wire ropes. It is stronger and safer, with significantly less snap-back. The corresponding weight is therefore 7 times lower. When replacing conventional fiber ropes, the reduction in diameter leads to significant savings in weight (60%), space and handling. This reduces the total time required for mooring operations and fuel consumption.
