Synthetic Rope Winch Lines
ASR Synthetic Winch Lines are designed and manufactured to bring you many years of reliable, high performance vehicle recovery. They are made in the USA, in an ISO 9001:2008 certified facility, and manufactured and tested in conformance with API Q1 Specification Standards. ASR Synthetic Winch Lines are made of Plasma® rope, made with fiber from the Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) family of material (also known as High Modulus Polyethylene, or HMPE) - other products made with such this same family are Amsteel Blue and Dyneema. Plasma was the first synthetic fiber to be approved by Warn for use on their winches – not even the popular Dyneema fiber has been officially approved by Warn.
Since the Plasma fiber has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any fiber (as much as 8X higher than that of high strength steel), this means that ASR winch ropes are 85% lighter and 20-40% stronger than an equivalent steel winch cable of the same diameter.
We also coat ASR winch lines with an extremely durable and highly pliable water/weather resistant fiber-lock coating to give them top tier UV and abrasion resistance. ASR winch lines can be made in custom colors upon request, and all feature a 100" drum warning color, typically red. They come with a stainless steel thimble and can be paired with either a safety hook or sling hook.
Lightweight Ropes also make for Safe Ropes. ASR Synthetic Winch Ropes carry far less kinetic energy than steel winch cables in the event of a failure. This means you and your equipment are safer with an ASR rope onboard.
