Quality armoring

Subsea umbilicals come in contact with many damaging factors, including: corrosion, tension, pressure, clashing, entanglement and even sharks. Our armoring wire protects cables from these types of damage. The high quality, steel wire is torsional balanced and galvanized. It ensures excellent fatigue performance in dynamic systems.

A personalized approach

We have high tensile wires with ideal mechanical properties, including excellent ductility, high tensile strength and coatings for corrosion resistance. Choose from two types of coatings -  zinc and our own zinc aluminum coating, Bezinal® to upgrade the wire's corrosion resistance.
