Orion Premium® is a durable line with excellent elongation properties. The outstanding performance features of Orion Premium result from a specially composed yarn comprising two different fi bers: a Polyver fibre core which is carefully over twisted with high grade polyester fibers.These composite yarns offer high strength, in combination with high abrasion resistance.
The composition of the two fi bers in Orion Premium is different from the Astra Line. It produces a fl oating Orion Premium rope, with a slight reduction in elongation properties and abrasion resistance compared with Astra Line, which is favored by many shipowners.
Orion Premium elongations at a given load factor, as a percentage of the
minimum breaking force of the rope:
