Oliveira has recently developed the Vela12 range. A twelve strand braided rope made from a new yarn. These ropes fill the gap between the high strength polyester range of products and the high performance fibers (like Dyneema®SK75).

This unique product meets the requirements in the market where a rope is needed stronger than the conventional polyester ropes but less expensive by the purchase than the truly high performance ropes.

Vela12 is a floating rope with little elongation properties. It has been designed for mooring applications or for connecting vessels on the water, such as ship to ship or tug to barge. When steel wire rope in these applications becomes inefficient, Vela12 is the solution.
 
Vela12 elongation at a given load factor, as a percentage of the minimum breaking force of the rope:
 
 
  • MBF
  • 20%
  • 30%
  • 40%
  • 50%
  • Elongation
  • 1,0%
  • 1,5%
  • 1,8%
  • 2,2%

The Oliveira ropes are produced in the Oliveira factory in Paredes, Portugal, in accordance with ISO 2307:2005. The breaking forces indicated are referring to
the strength in the ropes itself, without efficiency losses due to splicing or other end terminations.
