hamma™ strand has been developed to provide the marine and architectural industries with a quality ‘compacted’ strand that has a smooth clean finish, aesthetically superior to any product currently on the market, while maintaining the strength and corrosion resistance of all traditional stainless steel wire rope supplied by Arcus Wire. As hamma™ is a ‘compacted’ strand there is no need to pre-stress the wire. This process of strand compaction decreases the constructional stretch of the wire which also results in breaking loads approximately 30% higher than conventional strands.
