Products / SUPERPRO (Proprietary Co-Polymer) / 8-Braid Superpro®
Orion’s Sima extrusion process blends polypropylene and high modulus polyethylene resins to produce the co-polymer fibre used in SuperPro® ropes. SuperPro® is 35% stronger and has many times the abrasion resistance of conventional polypropylene products, with low-elongation characteristics equivalent to pure polyester. Orion’s testing shows that SuperPro® significantly outperforms other “blended olefin” fibres that are extruded using processes other than Sima. SuperPro® co-polymer rope, available exclusively from Orion Ropeworks, offers the best performance-price value.
