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.
Lubelock®Lubelock® – Designed for medium and heavy locking, Each strand has a composite spun polyester cover over a lubricated core of high tenacity SuperPro® co-polymer. As tension is applied to the rope the lubrication migrates to the strand surface, decreasing fiber on fiber friction resulting in less heat buildup. Lubelock® is engineered to have balance, […]
Superpro®Orion’s Sima extrusion process blends polypropylene and high modulus polyethylene resins to produce the co-polymer fiber used in making 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” fibers that are extruded using processes other than Sima. SuperPro® co-polymer rope, available exclusively from Orion Ropeworks, offers the best performance-price value.
