FLEX X-19

Flex X-19 is made from 19 strands and is a category 2 rotation resistant rope. Six strands are laid around a core strand in one direction, then 12 Strands are laid around this first operation in the opposite direction. Because of its tightly compacted, smooth design, Flex X-19 offers advantages:

  • More crush resistance than a standard 19 x 7 rope while providing the same rotation resistance.
  • Higher strength-to-diameter due to compacted wires in the strands. With increased metallic area, it provides rope strengths equal to 6 strand XXIP IWRC ropes of the same diameter.
  • Resistance to bending fatigue due to the uniformity of the wires within each strand. The strand's outer surface is smooth, reducing contact pressures between the rope's strands and radial pressures as it operates over sheaves and drums.
  • Exceptional stability due to the higher density strands coupled with the smooth outer surface.
  • Improved handling, operating and spooling characteristics.
  • Reduced wear to sheaves and drums.

It's used in single-part or multi-part hoist lines wherever you encounter spooling problems, drum crushing, block twisting or have fast line speeds.
