Unitrex XS-8 Applications

  • Industrial duty. This versatile rope is a great choice for a wide range of industrial tasks where a combination of strength and overall toughness is required. 
  • Boating jobs. Ropes and cables play an essential role in the marine industry as a whole. In addition to the other traditional rope products you use both on the water and on docks, you may have a need for a strong plaited cable, like Unitrex XS-8. 

Features of Unitrex XS-8

  • Impressive strength. Perhaps the top selling point of this cable is its strength, which is quite significant. The thickest Unitrex XS-8 measures 4-3/4’’ in diameter and offers a Minimum Spliced Break Strength of over 1 million pounds!
  • Lightweight cable. One of the features that makes Unitrex XS-8 so easy to use is the light weight of the product. For instance, a 100-foot section of this cable in the 1 ½” diameter thickness only weighs 52 pounds. 
  • Durable. Even some strong ropes and cables are prone to damage from abrasion, but Unitrex XS-8 holds up well. A polyester jacket that is saturated with urethane and then cured leaves the exterior of this cable extremely tough and ready to stand up to the toughest jobs.
