Global technology leader in the manufacture of wire and fibre rope solutions

TQ12 Pick Up/Messenger Line

The TQ12 is a torque balanced, flexible 12 strand rope construction. Manufactured using high tenacity polyolefin fibres, the TQ12 is ideal for Pick Up/Messenger applications. The full UV stablility and low water uptake are critical to good performance in CALM Buoy applications where the rope may remain immersed for prolonged periods.
