7×19 Aircraft Cable

Aircraft Cable is mainly used to control the rudder, aileron, engine, landing gear, compass needle corrector and so on. Aircraft Cable has a higher performance requirement than ordinary steel wire rope because of its special use environment, safety and reliability and long time use. For example, the tensile strength requirement is more than 1865MPa; the fatigue tests under different tension are required according to the structure and specifications. After fatigue test, the worn parts should have enough strength, that is, breaking force (see wire rope inspection) can not be less than 50% of the breaking force specified by the wire rope. Aircraft Cable also requires high corrosion resistance.

Adheres to Federal Specification RR-W-410, Type VI, Class 2
