TW Wire Ropes
Galvanized and ungalvanized wire rope is used for many kinds of projects and applications. No matter the application, wire rope must be used properly to ensure the safest working conditions. All of our wire rope is manufactured to meet or exceed Federal Specification RRW-410 and is mill certified.
Our wire rope comes in different strength categories (IPS and EIPS) and different cores (FC or fiber core and IWRC or independent wire rope core). Relevant data for each is listed in the table below. Email us with any questions you have.
6X19 CLASS WIRE ROPE
This wire rope classification is also known as 6x25 or 6x26, consists of 6 outer strands of 19, 25 or 26 wires each with a fiber core (FC) or IWRC core, and is available in galvanized or bright. Some uses for this type of rope are general purpose and industrial such as crane rigging, slings, and more.
6X37 CLASS WIRE ROPE
This wire rope classification consists of 6 outer strands of 36 wires each with a fiber core (FC) or IWRC core and is also available in galvanized or bright. Uses are for the same as 6x19 classification ropes, but are used in applications where more flexibility is required.
Galvanized and Stainless Aircraft Cable
NOT FOR AIRCRAFT USE
Commercial grade aircraft cable cannot be used for aircraft controls. However, it is used in many general-purpose applications such as slings, winch lines, non-aircraft control cables, and more (Mil-spec. also available, please call or email us for more information).
Galvanized Traw Cable
This wire rope classification consists of 6 outer strands of 7 wires each with a polypropylene core (PPC). Uses for this material include trawl cable (trawl rope) for commercial fishing, sand line (for well drilling), and more.
Nylon or Vinyl Coated
GALVANIZED OR STAINLESS - CLEAR OR STANDARD COLORS
Nylon or plastic coated aircraft cable is the same material as shown above but coated with a tough, flexible coating. It is used for general purpose where coating is required.
Stainless Steel Wire Rope
Similar in construction to 6x19 class IWRC galvanized wire rope, stainless steel ropes are used for general purpose in corrosive environments.
Cable Laid Aircraft Cable
Cable laid aircraft cable is used for mechanically spliced slings only and when extra flexibility is needed.
Super Swaged Wire Rope
30% STRONGER than other wire ropes
TW super swaged wire rope provides approximately 30% greater break strengths than other wire ropes in the same diameter. Where applicable, manufactured in accordance with Federal Specification RR-W-410E.
Compacted Wire Ropes
This wire rope classification has 6 outer strands of 26 wires each with a polypropylene core (PPC). Compacted to provide higher breaking strength on smaller diameter cable, compacted ropes are often used in commercial fishing. This type of wire rope runs in metric sizes.
Rotation Resistant Ropes
Rotation resistant ropes are designed to resist the tendency to spin or rotate under load. Used for general use on single-part crane lines to lift a free load, or where rotation resistance is crucial.
Spin Resistant Ropes
While not as rotation resistant as 19x7 rope, 8x25 Spin Resistant rope is more stable. With its increased resistance to bending fatigue and crushing, it is also used for general-purpose on single-part crane lines and sometimes multi-part wire rope systems.
Guy Strand Ropes
EHS CLASS A COATING - PER ASTM A475
Rotation resistant ropes are designed to resist the tendency to spin or rotate under load. Used for general use on single-part crane lines to lift a freeload, or where rotation resistance is crucial.
Deck Lashing Ropes
Not used for overhead lifting, deck lashing cable is used for securing loads on barges, ships, and the like. Also used as perimeter cable in building construction.
