Stainless Steel

  • Hercules SLR offers stainless steel and galvanized aircraft cable manufactured to the highest specifications.
  • Aircraft cable is wire rope that consists of individual steel wires laid in a spiral around a central wire to form a strand. The strands are then twisted together to form the cable.
  • Aircraft cable is specified by the number of strands in the rope, times the number of wires in each strand. For example, the 7 x 7 notation means that the rope has 7 strands and there are 7 wires in each strand and the 7 X 19 notation means that the rope has 7 strands and there are 19 wires in each strand.
  • The 7 X 7 construction is relatively stiff and is less likely to kink.
  • The 7 X 19 construction is both more flexible and more fatigue resistant than the 7 X 7 construction.
