Fishing rope wire (trawling and purse seining)

Fishing rope wire (trawling and purse seining)
Bekaert offers two types of rope wires for the fishing industry, both of which conform to the EN-10264-2 standard. The first is best for coastal fishing and the second is for trawling and purse seining. Featuring high strength and excellent ductility, the wire can also be compacted, reducing wear on your pulleys. They have excellent abrasion resistance.

Extending your rope’s lifetime

Industrial fishing ropes are submitted to a lot of wear and abrasion, especially trawling ropes used in purse seining. This is why our marine rope wire is suited for the fishing industry. It’s designed with: good corrosion resistance thanks to Bezinal® and Bezinal®3000 coatings, high tensile strength, consistent dimensions for a reduced pulley wear and increased abrasion resistance.

Coastal and industrial fishing ropes

Both types of our fishing rope wire conform to the EN-10264-2 standard. For the coastal fishing industry, we offer a wide range of flexible, corrosion resistant wires. They are best for fine, high tensile, non-compacted ropes. For trawling and purse seining, we offer an equally wide range of high strength wires. These are suitable for thicker, compacted ropes that require higher abrasion resistance.

Fine-tuned properties

Depending on your design, Bekaert can fine-tune the material properties of its rope wires. We offer standard class A and B galvanized wires that improve corrosion resistance. We also have wires coated with Bezinal® and Bezinal®3000, our own zinc aluminum coatings. If your ropes need superior resistance to corrosion and martensite friction, choose Bezinal® coatings.


  • Improves the rope’s lifetime in marine environments
  • Reduces pulley and abrasion wear
  • Resists martensite friction
  • Use with compacted and non-compacted fishing ropes

  • better together

    Situation Skiers count on safety when they go up the mountain

    Solution In close cooperation Bekaert developed superior quality wires that meet the technical customer requirements of ropeway constructors

    Result The customer handles the production of the cables, but also on-site weaving (or splicing) and installation. The cables have a life expectancy up to 40 years

  • better together

    Situation Ultra-strong and length-stable material is needed to reinforce synchronous belts which drive wind turbine blades.

    Solution A high-quality steel cord comprised of 83 twisted wires.

    Result Optimum tensile strength, length stability and adhesion with the rubber belt providing the wind turbine manufacturer with a substantially lighter, maintenance-free and space-saving solution.
