8.0mm Stainless Steel Wire Rope

$5.63$1,898.89 Includes GST

8.0mm wire, primarily for use in Rigging. 7×19 wire structure is best suited for use in mechanically swaged fittings (Hand Swages or Ferrules), whereas 1×19 is best suited for use in hydraulically swaged fittings, and 7×7 works with both manual swaging and hydraulic swaging.

8.0mm Stainless Steel Wire Rope

This 8.0mm stainless steel wire rope is super easy and VERY robust wire for the DIY guy who wants that awesome shade sails or rigging – used by both Professionals and DIY’s, it is excellent with all appropriately sized fittings. Other uses extend to:

  • Safety Wire
  • Shade Sails
  • Trawler Nets
  • Rigging
  • Slings
  • Catenary Wire

…and whatever the creative genius can imagine.

This is considered a highly flexible wire making it very easy to work with and has minimal stretch coefficient. Its  ease of use makes it excellent for use with Thimble and Ferrule fittings and acceptable for use with hydraulically
swaged fittings.

Our international supplier is dedicated to high carbon wire and rope manufacturing. Their long experience of wire and rope manufacturing enables them to design and manufacture wire and rope with optimal balance between high tensile strength, fatigue resistance, abrasion resistance, and structural stability. The added bonus is that they provide a special treatment for bright and smooth surface of wire and cable to deliver a truly top-shelf, long lasting product that will look new for ages…

Wire Structure:

Three common wire strand constructions are:

  • 1×19 indicates 19 thin wires twisted together in a silky and therefore smooth finish. Consequently, 19 individual wires twisted together construct a single strand of our premium wire. This is the least flexible wire structure. As a result, it is the easiest to keep clean.
  • 7×7 indicates a collection of 49 individual wires grouped as 7 sub-strands of 7 wires each. Consequently, 7 wire bundles twisted together form a single strand. This is more (medium) flexible wire than 1×19. As a result, it is for ‘general purpose’ applications and is most economical because it is commonly available.
  • 7×19 indicates a collection of 133 individual wires grouped as 7 sub-strands of 19 wires each. Consequently, 7 wire bundles of 19 wires twisted together form a single strand. This is our most flexible wire for use in rigging or small cranes or winches rather than balustrade construction. Low Cost Wire does not recommend 7×19 wire for balustrade construction.

…In conclusion, the more wires twisted to make a strand, the more flexible is the strand of wire because it deforms/bends without damage.

Application & Use

  • First of all, this wire may be mechanically – fastened  or manually or hydraulically swaged.
  • Cutting of the wire  is best done using Parrot Beak cutters (collapsing trapezoidal design) rather than shears or a grinder.
  • Terminal Loops are formed with Mechanical fastening or manual swaging. In addition, terminal loops must use stainless steel thimbles  (eyelets) to retain the strength of the wire by distributing the load along  the entire length of wire in the terminal loop (available here). Recommended for only 7×7 and 7×19 structures
  • Mechanical fastening is done with Wire Rope Grips (Bulldog Grips) Low Cost Wire does not  recommend this approach.  Industry practice is three per terminal loop for safety purposes. This only suits 7×7 and 7×19 structures.
  • Manual swaging is done using Ferrules (or crimps or hand swages) rather than Wire Rope Grips. Nickel Coated Copper is used instead of Aluminum because matching alloys is important. As a result, catastrophic swaging failure will not occur. Aluminium swages WILL cause a dissimilar alloys reaction and as a result corrode  the Stainless Steel wire.  Low Cost Wire strongly recommends an All-in-1 swaging tool. Recommended for only 7×7 and 7×19 structures
  • Hydraulic swaging  is done using a hydraulic press either bench mounted or hand held. Hydraulic swaging for architectural purposes may economically use a  Professional  Hydraulic Swaging Tool while remaining work safe. These tools generate pressure ‘spot’ welds. Low Cost Wire strongly recommends that hydraulic swaging for lifting and marine applications use a bench mounted hydraulic press which can generate pressure ‘seam’ welds. Recommended for 1×19. (works with 7×7 and 7×19 structures).
