Plasma 12 Strand is the highest strength synthetic rope available. Plasma 12 strand is manufactured from Honeywell Spectra Fiber that has been enhanced by the manufacturers unique recrystallization process resulting in exceptional performance in medium to large diameter ropes where strengths are over 50% higher and has significantly less creep than other similarly marketed 12 Strand products. PLASMA has 100% buoyancy and is considerably lighter in weight in comparison with other lines of comparable strength. PLASMA continually proves itself in the marketplace as being the best value in providing longevity of reliable service and safe handling on site both at sea and land.

Fibre ropes have come a long way since ancient people rolled and wove sheaves of grass. Today, fibre rope is made from familiar synthetic fibres such as nylon and polyester, or advanced fibres such as SPECTRA or KEVLAR. Hi-tech machines braid ropes with precise tension and braid angles.
Fibre rope provides excellent strength to weight ratios, and can be found in a bewildering array of configurations that take into account braiding style, stretch, 'feel', torque, wet and dry abrasion, UV resistance, water absorption, inspectibility and splicing characteristics.
Specialised Rope Products
Jeyco is the sole Australian distributor for the spectra fibre PLASMA (HMPE) rope, PLASMA rope is used in a wide range of high load applications, where traditional wire rope or a larger diameter fibre rope would have been used, PLASMA is stronger, lighter, safer (less recoil) and easier to handle.

Mooring Design & Supply
Moorings are a pertinent part of every vessel that requires a berth in an area where permanent tie up options alongside are not available or not practical to where the vessel is likely to carry out its daily activity. It is also highly important that the mooring is suitable for the vessel tethered to it for a number of reasons most of them relating to Safety and Security to the vessel.
