Wirelon

Union is the industry leader for coated can conveyor wire rope.  Since its inception in 1960, Wirelon has proven its superiority in major food canning and can manufacturing operations.  

Wirelon with Nylon 11 Coating is recommended for continuous exposure to temperatures below 250° F.  Wirelon can be furnished in any standard size needed to fit a particular installation.  Available on standard reels or in prespliced and recoated loops, it is designed to replace uncoated wire rope of the same nominal outside diameter with a minimum of preparation.
