TUF-KOTE Drill Line

  • Abrasion resistant
  • Fatigue resistant
  • Plastic polymer cushions strands, distributes internal stresses and keeps dirt out
TUF-KOTE Drill Line

Backed by a service-proven reputation, these ropes are built tough to withstand abrasion and fatigue.

6-Strand TUF-KOTE ropes are plastic impregnated with plastic polymer applied at high pressure which cushions the strands, distributes internal stresses, keeps in wire rope lubricant and keeps out dirt and debris. This polymer doesn’t melt or soften from the heat of normal operating temperatures. It’s also virtually unaffected by sunlight and cold weather.
