Lexco® Cable is an industry-leading wire rope assembly manufacturer specializing in cable coating extrusions to meet your aesthetic, durability, or safety requirements.
For 60 years, Lexco® has been providing customers across the country with top-quality wire rope coatings. Lexco® has a long history of meeting our customers' aesthetic, durability, and safety requirements when it comes to extrusions with our polyvinyl chloride (PVC), nylon, and high-density polyethylene (HDPE) coatings. Discover the expertise and experience you need to get the perfect coating extrusion for your wire rope application.
Our most commonly requested coating is PVC, which is ideal for its aesthetics, ergonomics, protection, and visibility. We can provide PVC coatings in over a dozen different standard colors, including translucent, solid, and high-visibility variations, and are happy to quote you a custom color to meet the needs of your company, brand, or application. Our in-house extrusion department can provide outside diameter (OD) coating up to 5/8".
We also offer two types of nylon coatings, Nylon-6 and Nylon-11, which deliver improved endurance for applications involving high levels of friction or abrasion. Nylon-6 coatings are a cost-effective choice for use with pulleys and sheaves. Nylon-11 can additionally be used with pulleys and sheaves and provides a greater lifespan in high cycling applications, for example, MIL-DTL-83420 Type II is Nylon-11 coated. Nylon also offers higher temperature ratings than our HDPE and PVC coatings. Our in-house team can produce up to 1/2" OD coatings in numerous solid and translucent colors, with custom color options available upon request.
High-density polyethylene (HDPE) coatings are also available to meet the specific requirements of your application and can be done in-house with up to 1/2" OD coatings. Typical HDPE coating applications include instances where the cable is required to be buried underground.
All Lexco® coatings are inspected using laser micrometers for OD measurement to ensure you always receive a top-quality final product. Extruded cable is available by the foot, reel, pre-cut, or included directly as part of your wire rope assembly.
Lexco coatings are available in a wide variety of translucent, opaque, and high-visibility colors. For a custom color quote, you can also contact us directly.
