PVC/Vinyl & Nylon Coated Cable Information:

  • Plastic coating applied to exterior of aircraft cable
  • Nylon is a harder coating than PVC/Vinyl 
  • PVC/Vinyl is better for outdoor applications with direct sunlight
  • PVC/Vinyl is more cost effective than Nylon
  • PVC/Vinyl is for general multi-purpose use
  • Nylon is used in fitness equipment applications, normally with pulleys and high cycling
  • Nylon is used in rough applications where rubbing and sharp edges can come in contact with the coated cable
  • Plastic coating can provide protection against corrosion and in some cases reduce wear of the rope and other rigging components
  • Plastic coated aircraft cable can be difficult to inspect
  • Nominal strengths for plastic-coated aircraft cable are based on the diameter and grade prior to coating
  • PVC (polyvinyl chloride) synonymous with vinyl 

7 X 7 PVC/Vinyl Coating

Table Summary:

The 7 X 7 PVC/Vinyl cable coatingtable displays the bare cable diameter, outer vinyl diameter, galvanized steel weight and stainless steel weight.

7x7 PVC/Vinyl Coated Cable Information:

  • 7 x 7 PVC/vinyl is less flexible than 7 x 19 and is used in applications where pulley cycling is low and infrequent
  • Vinyl coated 7 x 7 is for general purposes and is cost effective

Additional Coating Information:

PVC / VINYL COATED CABLE

A vinyl coating maintains its flexibility in most outdoor environments due to excellent UV protection and flexibility in cold weather. It is also cheaper than a nylon coating. 

Applications:

  • General purpose
  • Sailing
  • Security
  • Towing
  • Outdoors (sunny or cold environments)

NYLON COATED CABLE

A nylon coating is ideal for indoor cycle applications such as pulleys. Its rigidity resists gouges. While nylon coated cable performs poorly in the sun it has good chemical resistance.

Applications:

  • Pulleys (exercise equipment, conveyer pulleys, etc.)
  • Acidic environments (sewers, wells, etc.)
  • Indoors (minimal sun light)

 *All coatings available for military grade MIL-W-83420
