Oliveira Orion 12

Orion Line® is being produced in a composition of superior polyester and polyver fibres. This combination has proven in the practical field to be highly suitable in situations where the strength of the rope must be superior to that of standard polypropylene.

By this composition also the abrasion-resistance is substantially increased, which improves safety and the life-time of this rope. Orion Line® has a specific gravity of 0.98, being therefore a floatable rope. The 8 strand braided rope is a kink-free construction.

The UV-stabilizer protects the rope against deterioration by UV-radiation, thus contributing to the economic lifetime of the Orion Line®.
