|Regular Lay Rope||The most standard, and accepted for a wide range of applications. The direction of the individual wires is opposite to the direction of the strands. Because of this, the rope is less likely to untwist, and therefore is easier to handle than lang lay rope. This rope is also less subject to crushing.|
|Breaking Strength (BRT)||79.9 t|
The individual wires that form strands are most commonly available in high-carbon steel, generally supplied in an uncoated, or "bright" finish. Zinc coated, or "Galvanized" rope is available in some sizes and carries a nominal strength of 10% below that of a bright rope. On special request, wire rope can be drawn-galvanized, offering the same nominal strength as a bright rope.
Wires are laid geometrically to form strands, each composed of two or more wires. Breaking these strand configurations into several classifications is the basis for identifying wire rope.
A steel center rope yields a higher strength along with the ability to resist crushing Steel cores are required when the environment exceeds 180Â°(F)
