The 6x36 galvanized wire rope is a flexible general engineering wire rope with an equal lay construction and achieves a superior breaking load to the 6x19 construction range. The 6x36 is available with either a fiber core or IWRC (Independent Wire Rope Core) and is used in a wide range of applications, including, but not limited to, wire rope slings, crane ropes, winch ropes, hoist ropes, lifeboat falls, mooring ropes, pursing wires, luffing ropes, and tow ropes.
Galvanized wire rope (steel) features a compressed zinc coating for providing excellent corrosion resistance. With higher break strength, yet lower price than stainless steel, galvanized steel wire rope is widely used in general engineering applications.
The 6x36 wire rope class is made up of six strands of between 27 and 49 wires per strand for additional wire rope strength and durability. The 6x36 features IPS (Improved Plowed Steel), EIPS (Extra Improved Plowed Steel), or EEIPS (Extra Extra Improved Plowed Steel) grade wire rope. Also available in USA-made.
