Unitrex XS-8

Unitrex XS-8

This cable consists of eight (8) UniTrex™ XS ropes plied together to form an 8-strand plaited cable. Very strong, very light and very abrasion resistant, UniTrex XS-8 is unique. The base cable UniTrex XS is made of parallel strands of UHMPE fiber, bonded together with a rubber-ized adhesive, wound with rubber tape and over braided with a polyester jacket, which is saturated with urethane. The subsequent oven curing fuses the tape making a very tough cable, or in this case, strands, to make an even larger strength member.

Unitrex XS-8 is easily spliced with a straight forward tucking procedure.
