Galvanized steel wire ropes are constructed of galvanized wires which are dipped in thetank containing molten zinc to form a thick layer of zinc coating before thewire is drawing through dies. Then these galvanized wires are drawn to reducediameter and increase tensile strength. At the same time, zinc coating bondingto steel wires is compressed to form a more excellent layer to protect thesteel form corroding.
Cheaper than stainless steel wire ropes.Higher break strength than stainless steel.Greater fatigue strength.Excellent corrosion resistant.Less wear than other materials.Galvanized coating serves as lubricant toreduce friction.Remain ductile over long periods of working.Easier to inspect for corrosion damage.
