New England Ropes’ STS Stronger than Steel Technology is based on a very precisely controlled process that utilizes the ideal balance of uniform tensioning, uniform heating, and minimized rope rotation from start to finish in order to balance fiber lengths within a rope’s cross section. This process essentially presets the rope, resulting in the maximization
of strength, the minimization of constructional elastic elongation, and a longer overall service life for the rope. With STS, sailors have the option to use a rope with a smaller diameter without losing (and in most cases gaining) tensile strength. In addition, the ability to use smaller rope diameters without compromising on strength also reduces the overall weight of the line. Visit neropes.com for more information.
