Bezinal®3000: This advanced zinc aluminum coating complies with the NFA 35-035 standard (190 – 350 g/m²). Bezinal®3000 offers superior corrosion and cathodic protection which, compared to zinc, lasts up to 4 times longer when exposed to pollution or marine environments (DIN SS 5002, ASTM B117, ISO 9227).
Wax: This coating is completely water resistant and has been specifically designed for stay cables. The wax features high mechanical stability, and offers additional corrosion resistance to the metallic coating below.
HDPE sheathing: This layer consists of pure PE that has been tightly extruded around the strand. The standard wall thickness of the sheath is 1.5mm (thicker sizes available upon request).
Meeting Fib and PTI recommendations
Bekaert HDPE extruded stay cable strands comply with Fib and PTI recommendations for stay cable design testing. Our strands successfully pass the pull-pull fatigue test of 2000 000 cycles, leading to more durable stay cables.
