Marine cables wire

Marine cables wire
Bekaert high carbon, armoring wire protects and reinforces energy and utility cables that are used onshore and offshore. Applications include: power and telecom cables, cables attached to remotely operated vehicles (ROV) and cables used for seismic and topographic exploration. This wire is abrasion and corrosion resistant, thanks to our specialized coating Bezinal®.

Marine proof

Cable armoring wire has two major requirements. The first requirement is a superior corrosion resistance. As marine cables operate in and above sea level it is important that they can cope with the aggressive marine environment. The second requirement is a tensile strength high enough to the cable to pull or lift marine equipment. Bekaert armoring wire meets these needs.  It features high tensile strength, high abrasion resistance and corrosion resistance for different marine environments.

Tailored solutions

Your ropes may have very specific production and performance requirements. Bekaert listens closely to your needs and uses its advanced production capabilities to produce your ideal armoring wire. Our coating options include standard zinc and wires coated with Bezinal®, our own zinc aluminum coating.
