ALPINE CABLE PROTECT is a special re-greasing agent for ropes that efficiently protects wire ropes of ropeways against the effects of weather and wear, thereby increasing the service life of the rope. The product is pre-diluted with a special solvent in the factory, resulting in very good application. Once the solvent has evaporated, a thin, incredibly adhesive, water-repellent protective film is formed.

Technical details

Field of application

ALPINE CABLE PROTECT is used on wire ropes of ropeways, ski lifts or material haulage tracks.

  • DSB 80


  • 5l
  • 25l
  • 60l
  • 200l


Storage: well sealed, dry and cool. The product must be applied in the shortest amount of time possible. If necessary, thin with ALPINE CABLE SOLVENT only.

Nice to know


  • prevents the corrosion and inner wear of wire ropes.
  • extends the service life of wire rope.
  • neutral in contact with the most common wire rope sheaves and traction sheaves
  • fully compatible with common basic rope lubricants
  • To be applied sparingly just once or twice a year.


ALPINE CABLE PROTECT must only be applied to dry and clean wire ropes. The product must be applied using a sprayer at temperatures of >+10°C. Before the system is put into operation, observe the evaporation time for the solvent.


Requirement for stranded ropes: <30 g per m² of rope surface; requirement for fully locked track ropes: <15 g per m² of rope surface or in accordance with information provided by rope manufacturer and calculation formula.

What does tribology mean?

Tribology covers scientific research and technical applications of friction, wear and lubrication, taking account of design, materials science, regulations imposed by the authorities, etc. Tribo technology also deals with the retention of the value of machines and tools, simplification of lubrication application, minimisation of energy losses plus environmental demands, cost-optimised production and targeted maintenance schedules.
