Supermax Rope

Learn More

SuperMax is the latest development in ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) fibre braided rope.  SuperMax has the strongest tensile strength per weight and is stronger than wire rope of the same diameter. SuperMax is treated with a unique coating and special heat treatment process to enhance its anti-abrasion characteristics.
