- Forged from special bar quality carbon steel, suitable for cold forming.
- Hardness controlled by spheroidize annealing.
- Swage Socket terminations have an efficiency rating of 100% based on the catalog strength of wire rope.
- Stamp for identification after swaging without concern for fractures (as per directions in National Swaging Brochure).
