Zinc (galvanized) coated steel cable is the most common type of cable. It offers moderate corrosion resistance, and remains ductile over long periods when running over sheaves. Galvanized cable is stronger than stainless steel cable.
304 stainless steel cable (also known as 18-8) is the most common type of stainless steel cable. It offers better corrosion resistance, but lower strength than galvanized cable.
316 stainless steel cable offers the most corrosion resistance and is ideal for marine environments, but lower strength than grade 304 stainelss steel and galvanized cable.
This is galvanized cable with a clear vinyl coating. It provides additional corrosion resistance, high flexibility, superior appearance and abrasion resistance.
