* 8x36 Galvanized Wire Rope

The 8×36 Galvanized Wire Rope is a type of wire rope made of steel wires covered with a layer of zinc to protect it from rusting and corrosion.

* 8x36 Ungalvanized Wire Rope

The 8×36 Ungalvanized Wire Rope is a type of wire rope made of steel wires that are not coated with a layer of zinc to protect them from corrosion. Instead, the wire rope is left uncoated, making it more economical than galvanized wire ropes.

* Difference between 8x36 Wire Rope and 6x36 Wire Rope

The main differences between the 6×36 wire rope and 8×36 wire rope are as follows:

  1. Construction: The 6×36 wire rope consists of six strands, each with 36 wires, whereas the 8×36 wire rope consists of eight strands, each with 36 wires.

  2. Flexibility: 8×36 wire rope is more flexible than 6×36 wire rope. This is because the Warrington Seale construction used in 8×36 wire construction gives the rope more flexibility.

  3. Breaking Strength: The 6×36 wire rope has less breaking strength than the 8×36 wire rope. The additional strands in the 8×36 design give it a higher breaking strength.

  4. Durability: The 8×36 wire rope is more durable than the 6×36 wire rope. Due to the additional strands and galvanization, it is more resistant to wear and tear.

  5. Corrosion Resistance: The 8×36 wire rope is more resistant to corrosion than the 6×36 wire rope. This is because the 8×36 wire rope has a galvanized layer coating to protect it from corrosion, whereas the 6×36 wire does not.

  6. Cost: The 6×36 wire rope is generally less expensive than 8×36 wire rope due to its construction and lack of galvanized coating.

In summary, the 8×36 wire rope is more durable, flexible, and offers higher breaking strength and corrosion resistance than the 6×36 wire rope, but it is generally more expensive. The choice between the two depends n the specific needs of the application and the budget. If you want to buy 6×36 wire ropes, pls see here.
