The innovative lightweight block combines a custom high strength alloy with a low profile design, creating a tremendous weight to strength ratio.  The block has the design factor, 4:1.  It's lightweight composite sheave is made with a material blend (MoS2 Filled Nylon/"Moly Filled") that is specifically designed for increased strength and durability.  "Moly Filled" means, Molybdenum disulfide is added during the plymerization of nylon to increase the hardness and wear resistance while lowering the coefficient of friction.  Should any marring of the sheave tread occur, the composite material will cause NO abrasion on the wire rope, unlike traditional alloy sheave materials.  The elasticity of composite sheaves results in a larger contact area between wire ropes and the sheave grove which reduces the specific load and keeps less stress on the wire rope.  Generally the load bearing contact area on composite nylon sheaves is 10 times larger than those of a steel sheave.

The 15 ton LIGHTWEIGHT block is the culmination of over 2 years of research and development between Skookum and B/A Products.  It's the first major redesign of the snatch block since they were patented way back in 1945!  Skookum is a family owned business that was founded in 1890 and is a leader in the forging industry.  For more information about Skookum; check them out at www.skookumtough.com.
