Samson introduces three mooring line innovations

(FERNDALE, Wash.) — Samson, a leading developer of high-performance synthetic rope solutions, has announced its latest innovations designed to enhance safety in mooring operations: EverSteel-X, Amsteel-X and SureSteel.

EverSteel-X, designed for semi-permanent mooring, has several new features designed to improve rope lifetime, operational efficiency and safety. Enhanced and proprietary coating technology brings superior abrasion resistance, permanent twist identification and a patent-pending end-for-end indication to this high-visibility rope. EverSteel-X holds third-party certifications and is approved for permanent jetty mooring through the Bureau Veritas, with its POSA approval. BV’s POSA framework qualifies the rope for permanent mooring at a jetty, making EverSteel-X the first and only high-performance synthetic rope to achieve this designation. It is also MEG4 tested and certified through the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS). This line offers the highest UV-resistance, and the highest fatigue performance of all Samson mooring lines, and contains Dyneema DM20 fiber. All of these features work together to maximize line life and reduce risk.

AmSteel-X, a newly introduced product, combines all the features of Samson’s flagship AmSteel-Blue and customizes them even further for the mooring environment. AmSteel-X includes new high-visibility, yarn-level coating for both internal and external abrasion resistance, twist identification, length marking, and end-for-end indication. Made with Dyneema SK78 fiber, Amsteel-X is MEG4-tested and certified through ABS, and available in all sizes to meet MBLsd requirements. 

SureSteel brings a third option to the marketplace, when a balance between initial investment and service life required. Thoroughly tested by Samson, it provides the excellent quality and reliable, consistent performance. SureSteel is MEG4 tested and certified through ABS and is available in all sizes to accommodate MEG4 requirements.
