High quality – high breaking load

Bekaert offers a wide range of coated round and Z-shaped steel wires for the production of hauling and carrier ropes. The wires that make up the rope core are of consistent quality. They feature high tensile strength and excellent ductility, leading to optimal fatigue resistance and a high breaking load. Moreover the round and Z-shaped wires can be coated with advanced coatings ( Bezinal®, Bezinal®3000 ). The combination of these features provides the right requirements for any traction or track rope: safety, stability, sustainability and less maintenance.
