March 15 - Samson has received its latest patent for developing a technology that blends high modulus polypropylene (HMPE) with high modulus polyethylene (HMPP) together in fibre rope products.

Samson says that MLX is the first rope on the market that provides higher performance characteristics than ropes made with traditional fibres such as nylon and polyester, yet it remains less costly than ropes made of 100 percent HMPE.
