Product information

Acera daGama SBA construction offers a tough HMPE rope solution, with full cover braid protection. This product offers protection to the 12-strand HMPE core, with a tight 24 braided PES cover braid layer - bonded together using an exclusive adhesive coating. Timm SBA is integrated into the core of the rope.

Acera with SBA includes the feature of reducing the risk of snap back.

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™ SBA, you can mitigate risks to personnel during mooring operations, creating a safer mooring environment.

Every yarn, both in the core and the cover are individually coated through our unique, rotating 360° Lick-roller process. Single yarn coating extends service life, strength and internal / external abrasion resistance. This product is ideally suited to single drum winching. This is an adaptable product, which can be customized to suit your intended application.
