Oliveira X-Trema

X-TREMA LINE ropes produced by Oliveira are made of a material – high modulus polyethylene – that confers special features and several advantages when compared with ropes of other materials. If considering the same diameter, an X-TREMA LINE rope has an equivalent strength of a steel wire rope plus the benefit of flotation. Due to its high strength and durability it peforms well in mooring, towing and offshore installation systems. 

Because of its lighter weight, the X-TREMA LINE rope is much easier to handle, allowing better safety conditions during its usage.
