The 6xK36 wire rope is known for its high strength, resistance to abrasion and bending, and flexibility. It is commonly used in lifting and hoisting applications such as cranes and elevators, as well as for anchoring and towing in marine environments.

SICHwirerope as a wire rope manufacturer, specializes in the production of 6xK36 wire ropes, offering top-quality products that meet the highest standards of design and performance. It is particularly versatile and strong, making it ideal for many applications. 

In the following, we will mainly introduce our brand (SICH) the following wire rope:

* 6xK36WS-IWRC Wire Rope

The 6xK36WS-IWRC Wire Rope features an Independent Wire Rope Core (IWRC) in the center of the rope. This enhances the strength and load capacity of the wire rope. The 6xK36WS-IWRC Wire Rope is commonly used in lifting, hoisting, and towing applications that require a high degree of strength, durability, and resistance to abrasion. This type of wire rope is also used in marine and offshore applications, as it provides excellent corrosion resistance and performs well in harsh environments.

6xK36WS-IWRC wire rope

The 6xK36WS-IWRC Wire Rope is a high-performance wire rope that offers excellent strength, flexibility, durability, and corrosion resistance, making it a popular choice for a wide range of lifting, hoisting, and towing applications.

* 6xK36 Galvanized Wire Rope

The 6xK36 Galvanized Wire Rope is a type of wire rope with six outer strands of 36 wires each, totaling to 216 wires. It is known for its high strength, durability, and resistance to corrosion because of its galvanized coating. The steel wire rope is coated with a layer of zinc through the process of galvanization, which provides extra protection against corrosion and rust. Galvanization involves coating the wire rope with molten zinc, which creates an added layer of protection, making it suitable for outdoor and marine applications.

* 6xK36 Ungalvanized Wire Rope

The 6xK36 Ungalvanized Wire Rope, as the name suggests, the wire rope is not coated or treated with any form of galvanization to prevent corrosion. Instead, it is left bare and untreated. The 6xK36 Ungalvanized Wire Rope is known for its high strength, flexibility, and excellent resistance to wear and abrasion.

6xK36 UNgalvanized wire rope

In summary, the 6xK36 Ungalvanized Wire Rope is a cost-effective and durable wire rope solution that offers high strength, excellent flexibility, and resistance to abrasion, making it suitable for various lifting, hoisting, and towing applications.

* Difference between 6xK36 Wire Rope and 6x36 Wire Rope

The main difference between the 6xK36 wire rope and the 6×36 wire rope lies in their construction and characteristics.

The 6xK36 wire rope is a type of wire rope with six outer strands, each made up of 36 wires of different diameters. The “K” stands for “Kontakt” and refers to the fact that the ropes between the outer strands are in contact with each other. This design provides the wire rope with excellent flexibility, high breaking strength, and good resistance to abrasion and wear. The 6xK36 wire rope is ideal for applications that require frequent bending or flexing, such as winches, cranes, or elevators, and in marine environments.

On the other hand, the 6×36 wire rope also has six outer strands, but each is made up of the same size of wires and does not have a “Kontakt” design. Because of this, the 6×36 wire rope has a more rigid structure than the 6xK36 wire rope, which makes it less flexible but more resistant to crushing or flattening under high loads. Therefore, it is best suited for applications that involve straight lifting or hoisting, such as anchor chains, hoists, and overhead cranes.

In summary, the 6xK36 wire rope is preferred when flexibility and resistance to abrasion are important, while the 6×36 wire rope is better suited for applications that require greater crushing resistance and less flexibility. If you want to buy 6×36 wire ropes, pls see here.

What is the load capacity of the 6xK36 wire rope?

- The load capacity of the 6xK36 wire rope will depend on a variety of factors such as the diameter of the wire, the number of strands, and the length of the rope. The breaking strength of the wire rope is the total load required to break the wire. It is crucial to determine the load capacity of the wire rope based on the application's requirements to ensure safety and efficiency.

Is the 6xK36 wire rope suitable for marine environments?

- Yes, the 6xK36 wire rope's high resistance to abrasion, wear, and corrosion makes it ideal for use in marine environments. The wire rope's galvanized coating protects it from corrosion caused by saltwater exposure, making it suitable for offshore applications.

What is the lifespan of the 6xK36 wire rope?

- The lifespan of the 6xK36 wire rope will depend on several factors, such as the working environment, frequency of use, maintenance and storage practices, and load capacity. Generally, wire ropes have a long lifespan and can last many years with proper care and maintenance.

What is the minimum bend radius for the 6xK36 wire rope?

- The minimum bend radius for the 6xK36 wire rope will depend on the diameter of the wire rope. Generally, the smaller the diameter, the smaller the minimum bend radius. It is essential to follow the manufacturer's recommendations regarding bending the wire rope to prevent damage or failure.

How should I store the 6xK36 wire rope when not in use?

- To prolong the lifespan of the 6xK36 wire rope, it should be stored in a dry, cool place, away from sunlight, and moisture. The wire rope should be stored on a reel or rack to prevent bends, kinks, or tangles that can make it unusable. It is recommended to store the wire rope loosely wound to allow air to circulate and prevent mildew or rust buildup.
