The 8x25 IWRC (Independent Wire Rope Core) rotation-resistant wire rope is specially designed for use when rotation must be kept to a minimum. Strict adherence to breaking-in procedures and proper handling during use are extremely important with these ropes.
The spin-resistant characteristic is achieved by laying the eight outer strands around an independent wire rope core so these strands are in opposite direction to the lay of the core. Thus, when the rope is in tension, opposing rotational forces are created between the core and the other strands.
The size relationship between strands and cores gives this rope increased wire rope strength, bendability, crush resistance, and fatigue resistance. Also available in USA-made.
