Stainless Steel Wire Roes for Marine & General Applications

Stainless steel wire ropes boast higher corrosion resistance to salt water than galvanized wire ropes, so they are the best choice of marine applications. Meanwhile, the bright appearance of galvanized wire ropes will dull over time, but stainless steel wire rope will maintain its bright and modern appearance for years. Therefore they are generally used in decoration for modern display and architectural purposes, such as railings, architectural cables, cable balustrades, handrails, etc.

Two coils of stainless steel wire rope

Stainless steel wire rope

Normally, stainless steel wire rope is made of 304, 305 or 316. And here is a simple comparison of these materials:

  • The 304 material, as the most common type, is magnetic with excellent corrosion resistance and strength compared with galvanized steel wire ropes. But it still will corrode to some extent over year so it is not suitable for marine and food applications.
  • The 305 material is more corrosive resistant than 304. Meanwhile, it is largely non-magnetic perfectly suited for aeronautical and naval fields.
  • The 316 materials is the most corrosive resistant type and highly used in high corrosion environments and places with high salt spray. But the 316 material is about 10% less strength than 304 stainless steel.

Construction:
Four main constructions of stainless steel wire ropes - 1 × 19, 7 × 7, 7 × 19, 6 × 36 FC/IWRC are available as shown below:
