STANDARD WIRE ROPE > 6 Strand Wire Ropes
6 Strand Wire Ropes

A standard 6x36 construction is very robust but has limited resistance to rotation and may cause complications because of twisting and eventual kinking of the wire rope.

The 6 Strand Wire Ropes category includes standard 6 strand, round strand ropes with 25 through 61 wires per strand.

The 6 Strand Wire Ropes are important for their fatigue resistance; this fatigue resistance is made possible by the greater number of small wires per strand.

As the rope size increases, a large number of wires can be used to achieve required fatigue resistance, and still those wires will be large enough to offer adequate resistance to abrasion.
