Oliveira Delphin 8

The high strength Delphin Line® monofilaments are produced according to the latest state of the art in extrusion technology. This guarantees a superior and safe performance in practice. The ropes are available in 8 strand (increasingly sold as mooring ropes on sea going vessels) and 12 strand. 

Delphin Line® ropes float and do not absorb water, making the handling very easy. The special nature of the filaments contributes highly to an increased abrasion resistance, thus improving the lifetime and the security.
