8XK36WS wire rope “K” designation in its name refers to a higher carbon content in the wire, making it stronger and more durable. The “WS” character stands for “Web Strand” where one or more strands have a larger diameter compared to the other strands, which helps to increase the rope’s resistance to abrasion and fatigue. This type of wire rope is commonly used in heavy lifting applications, such as in cranes, elevator systems, and suspension bridges. 

SICHwirerope as a wire rope manufacturer, specializes in the production of 8xK36WS 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:

* 8xK36WS-IWR Wire Rope

The unique feature of 8xK36WS-IWR wire rope is the IWR (Independent Wire Rope) core. The IWR core consists of individual, high-strength, helically-laid, galvanized steel wires that are laid in a specific pattern to provide maximum stability, strength, and crushing resistance to the wire rope.

This type of wire rope is commonly used in critical load applications such as construction, mining, and offshore rigging. It is essential to comply with the manufacturer’s specifications to determine the necessary load capacity, fatigue resistance, and rope life expectancy required for the intended application.

8xK36WS IWR Wire Rope

Overall, 8xK36WS-IWR wire rope offers a vast range of benefits that make it a dependable and safe choice for use in various industries and applications that require heavy-duty lifting and rigging. If you need this type of wire ropes, pls feel free to contact us.

* 8xK36 Galvanized Wire Rope

8xK36 galvanized wire rope is a type of wire rope that consists of eight strands, where each strand contains a minimum of 36 wires, made from high-carbon steel. The wire rope undergoes a hot-dip galvanizing process, which involves coating the wire rope with a layer of zinc to protect it from corrosion.

8xK36 Galvanized Wire Rope

Overall, 8xK36 galvanized wire rope is an excellent choice for applications that require high strength, durability, and corrosion resistance. It is a reliable option for marine, construction, and heavy load applications where safety and longevity are essential.

* 8xK36 Ungalvanized Wire Rope

8xK36 ungalvanized wire rope unlike the galvanized wire rope, it is not coated with a layer of zinc during the manufacturing process, which means it is ungalvanized.

* Difference between 8xK36 Wire Rope and 8x36 Wire Rope

The primary difference between 8xK36 wire rope and 8×36 wire rope is the construction of the wire rope.

8xK36 wire rope consists of eight strands, with each strand containing a minimum of 36 wires made from high-carbon steel. The “K” in 8xK36 refers to the high carbon content of the wire, which makes it stronger and more durable.

On the other hand, 8×36 wire rope consists of eight strands, where each strand contains a minimum of 36 wires, made from either high-carbon or low-carbon steel. Unlike 8xK36 wire rope, the “36” in 8×36 refers to the number of wires in each strand, and it does not indicate the carbon content.

Another difference between the two wire ropes is the construction pattern. 8xK36 wire rope usually features an alternate lay construction pattern, which means that each strand is laid in the opposite direction of the adjacent strands. This helps to minimize torque and reduce the likelihood of wire rope failure.

In contrast, 8×36 wire rope typically features a regular lay construction pattern, where all the strands are laid in the same direction. While this type of wire rope can be more flexible, it can be more prone to torque and subsequent wire rope failure.

Overall, the key differences between 8xK36 wire rope and 8×36 wire rope are the carbon content, construction pattern, and resistance to torque and wire rope failures. It is essential to consider these factors when selecting the appropriate wire rope for your specific application. If you want to buy 8×36 wire ropes, pls see here.
