In mining hoist ropes with plastic encased core, a plastic sheathing is inserted and impregnated between the outer layer of strands and the inner layer(s) of strands. This plastic filler reduces potential sliding of the various components while still allowing necessary movement. The plastic also fills the free space between the exterior strands which acts as a cushion and noticeably prevents friction wear damages. But perhaps the biggest advantage of this product is that the plastic covers the core, so it’s able to seal the lubrication in the inner strands and keep out the polluting agents that lead to corrosion.
