Philadelphia Resins Offers New Bulletin On Its Wire Rope Socketing System

Stronger, more reliable wire rope assemblies are provided by a twopart liquid system for socketing wire rope. This pourable, resin socketing system provides elasticity at termination transition points to insure maximum resistance to shock loads.

Actual results of dynamic test loads are included in a new, fourpage sales bulletin. This brochure explains how the resin socketing system, developed by Philadelphia Resins Corporation of Montgomeryville, Pa., cures quickly to provide 100 percent of the rated break strength of a wire rope, while eliminating installation hazards associated with poured zinc or babbitt.

After curing for less than an hour at 70 F or for only five minutes with a wraparound heater, SocketfastE will withstand severe environments from - 6 5 to 200 F, and it will not be affected by electrolysis or immersion in most corrosive fluids.

For socketing boom pendants and other wire rope assemblies on cranes and other equipment, Socketfast combines ease of installation with substantial improvements in fatigue strength and shock resistance. This poured resin system also eliminates the need for acid etching and handling of molten metals. To replace wire rope assemblies in the field, the resin system allows standard sockets to be used over and over again by merely driving out cured cones with a drift pin.
