General purpose rope wire

General purpose rope wire
Our general purpose, steel rope wire is used in a wide range of static and dynamic applications. With it, you can create ropes that are crush, cut, heat and stretch resistant. Their high strength and excellent ductility keep the ropes strong in many applications.

Choosing a reliable high performance

This general purpose rope wire is able to handle any amount of stress, whether the ropes are exposed to breaking forces, bending strength, abrasion or rotation. Our wire meets these challenges and offers safety, reliability and durability.
