The Robline rope maker applies a special process to the Ocean 5000 STS, which consists in heat-stretching the braid to compact the plaits together and to direct them toward their working axle. Stiffer and more resistant thanks to the STS treatment, the Ocean 5000 braid’s elongation will be minimal.
The STS treatment obtains a perfect round cross-section braid, that can be spliced, and a cover added easily.
The Ocean 5000 STS stiffness properties enable steel cables to be replaced on standing rigging. forestays, shrouds, backstays, runners and downhaul strops.
The Ocean 5000 STS braid can also be used ashore with hoists or any application requiring cables.
