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.
