ROPETEX S18 is a semi-rotation resistant steel wire rope consisting of two layers of strands and a (steel) wire strand core. As the outer strands are closed in the opposite direction of the inner strands this rope is considered as semi-rotation resistant rope. ROPETEX S18 should not be used with a swivel and for unguided single part in great lifting height, with reference to the rotational properties (see manual).
ROPETEX S18 is mostly used in diameter from 3 to 8 mm in several lifting applications like truck cranes, overhead cranes, jib cranes, electrical hoists and all other applications where a semi-rotation resistant wire rope is good enough.
If you are searching for a rotation-resistant steel wire rope, look at ROPETEX S55.
