While wire rope may come pre-lubricated, the lubrication will not care for your rope the way it needs to. We tested the lubrication of wire rope in our lab, and saw that the pre-lubricated wire rusted in only 3 days after bathing in saltwater. When we tested the lubricated wire rope coated with HinderRUST, which happens to be extremely surface active and absorbs right into the rope, we saw that the wire did not rust.
We were astonished by this and excited to see a product that can help extend the life of lubricated wire rope. These are essential pieces of equipment that hold together things like the George Washington Bridge and that go deep down into mines. When they rust and corrode, they become weakened and dangerous.
“HinderRUST soaks right into our wire rope, protecting the entire cable.”
