8-PAC is recommended for hoist ropes for steel mill ladle cranes and hoist and trolley ropes for container cranes, or other hoisting applications with heavy-duty cycles or where severe bending occurs.
Other features of 8-PAC include:
Superior Performance. 8-PAC has higher breaking strength and gives superior performance in difficult hoisting applications compared to standard 6-strand and 6-strand compacted ropes.
Abrasion Resistance. 8‑PAC compacted strand design provides improved abrasion resistance as compared to standard 6 and 8 strand ropes because of the increased wire and strand surfaces contacting the sheaves and drums.
Superior Flexibility. 8‑PAC is significantly more flexible than standard 6 and compacted 6 strand ropes with better spooling and longer service life.
Resistance To Multi-layer Drum Crushing. 8-PAC’s plastic-filled (BXL) core offers increased resistance to crushing through better support of the outer strands.
