This Standard covers mine hoisting, mine haulage, and ski-lift ropes, and ropes for general applications. It includes requirements for raw materials and construction features for round strand and flattened strand rope, locked coil rope, plastic impregnated and jacketed rope, and compacted strand rope in bright and galvanized finish.
The Standard also includes requirements for in-service destructive testing of steel wire ropes for mine hoisting applications.
This Standard is not intended for use in the manufacture and purchase of aircraft cable, elevator rope, tiller rope, swaged rope, marlin-covered rope, marine or shipping ropes, bridge rope, and strand, galvanized sash cord, zinc-coated strand, or galvanized guard rail cable.
The values stated in either SI units or inch/pound units are regarded as standard. Within the text, the inch/pound units are shown in parentheses and in separate tables (except for Tables 11 and 16, which do not contain measurement values). The values stated in each system of measurement are not exact equivalents; each system is to be used independently of the other.
