Superior is an 8- or 12-strand braided rope made of Dyneema®SK78. Superior has a very high strength and low weight-to- diameter ratio. It is stronger than conventional steel wire, yet the weight is 8 to 10 times lower. The rope has very good abrasion resistance and is used in applications where ease in handling and operation is important.
The rope consists of an equal number of interwoven clockwise and anti-clockwise strands making the rope torque free.
During production the rope is standard polyurethane coated using a specialized coating procedure that limits the abrasion and thus significantly extends the lifecycle of the ropes. Other coatings can be applied to suit specific applications.
The rope can also be overbraided with a protective jacket or covered with protection sleeves.
