Galvanized Steel Wire Ropes
Galvanized steel wire ropes are constructed of galvanized
wires which are dipped in the tank containing molten zinc to form a thick layer
of zinc coating before the wire is drawing through dies. Then these galvanized
wires are drawn to reduce diameter and increase tensile strength. At the same
time, zinc coating bonding to steel wires is compressed to form a more excellent
layer to protect the steel form corroding.
Cheaper than stainless steel wire ropes.
Higher break strength than stainless steel.
Greater fatigue strength.
Excellent corrosion resistant.
Less wear than other materials.
Galvanized coating serves as lubricant to reduce friction.
Remain ductile over long periods of working.
Easier to inspect for corrosion damage.
