Validator 12

Vectran Fiber Samthane Coated Extremely Low Creep 12-Strand Single Braid

Validator-12, constructed of Vectran fibers, is the second strongest rope in the Samson line.
 
A LCP (liquid crystal polymer) fiber, Vectran exhibits high strength, excellent creep and abrasion resistance, excellent flex/fold and chemical resistance, and outstanding heat and cut resistance.
 
 
One of the most advanced lines available, Validator 12 is ideal for applications requiring very high strength, low stretch, or resistance to high heat and friction.
 
It is commonly used in high performance running rigging, or as a replacement for wire rigging.
 
Its high creep resistance (low stretch under constant loads) makes it outstanding for use as halyards and control lines.

High strength-to-weight ratio

12-Strand hollow braid construction
 
Supple, absorbs twist, and resists kinking
