Applications


  • 3-Strand Industrial Nylon
    Orion produces high quality 100% nylon ropes for industrial use. All sizes above 5/16″ diameter utilize plied yarns manufactured in a four stage process. Orion uses specific grade raw material sourced from well known manufacturers. Nylon filament is steam heat set prior to twisting to reduce rope shrinkage in the field. Nylon has the highest stretch, strength, and shock absorbency of any synthetic rope.
  • 3-Strand Polyester
    Polyester – A high density multifilament rope incorporating high tenacity white filament in a four stage, plied yarn construction. Among conventional synthetic ropes, polyester has the lowest stretch, best abrasion resistance, and good dielectric properties. Standard color is white.
  • 3-Strand Premium Polypropylene
    Polypropylene is the lightest and most economical synthetic rope, with approximately twice the tensile strength of manila. Polypropylene rope will not rot or mildew, is resistant to most chemicals and acids, floats in salt and fresh water, and can be stored wet.
  • 3-Strand Prodac®
    ProDac® – A value composite rope with an abrasion resistant polyester cover over a polypropylene core.
  • 3-Strand Superior Nylon
    Superior Nylon is made from 100% high tenacity multifilament nylon fiber. The rope is manufactured at full weight with a medium firm lay, resulting in true nylon performance. Orion Superior Nylon is heat-set with steam in the filament stage. This process leads to reduced hardening in use resulting in a rope with consistent firmness workable throughout its service life. Orion's proprietary marine finish is applied to each nylon filament to reduce internal yarn abrasion and water absorption. This added step gives the rope extended service life in an outdoor marine environment.
  • 8-Strand Industrial Nylon
    Orion produces high quality 100% nylon ropes for industrial use. All sizes above 5/16″ diameter utilize plied yarns manufactured in a four stage process. Orion uses specific grade raw material sourced from well known manufacturers. Nylon filament is steam heat set prior to twisting to reduce rope shrinkage in the field. Nylon has the highest stretch, strength, and shock absorbency of any synthetic rope.

  • 8-Strand Prodac®
    ProDac® – A value composite rope with an abrasion resistant polyester cover over a polypropylene core.
  • California Truck Rope
    A 100% monofilament polypropylene twisted rope. Filament for this rope is extruded at Orion from virgin poly resins. Good UV resistance. Black with one orange tracer in each strand.
  • Conduit Tape
    Manufactured from bonded parallel polyester fibers. This product is produced for use as a measuring tape and light weight pull cord. Each reel is printed in 1 foot increments for accurate measuring of conduit runs. Read More….
  • Cotton Twine
    Soft natural fiber makes cotton twine easy to handle. Holds knots well and is biodegradable. Dry store only
  • Easy Haul Potwarp
    An economy sinking potwarp. Made with alternating black polypropylene and white polyester yarns within each of the three strands.
  • EsterPlex
    Produced from high tenacity polyester offering high strength and low stretch. This construction gives a very high mechanical efficiency. Can be easily spliced. Designed for T & D stringing lines and hand lines.
  • Extra-Lene®
    Extra-lene® – A composite rope poly-dac rope. Extra-lene® combines the superior abrasion resistance of polyester cover with the economy of polyolifin core. White with one orange tracer in diameters up to 3/4″. Two orange tracers in diameters above 3/4″

  • Leaving Line
    Economical polypropylene rope made from variegated yarns used as a disposable & economical tie-up line. Not to be used in critical applications
  • Lockman®
    Lockman® – Designed for lighter locking, Lockman® is manufactured with composite spun polyester over a strand core of monofilament polypropylene. The lay of the rope is medium-soft to optimize tensile strength. The fuzzy softness of polyester cover yarns serves to diffuse heat buildup and offers excellent abrasion resistance.
