6x37 Classification Wire Ropes have a third layer of wires which makes them more flexible, although less abrasion-resistant, than ropes of the 6x19 classification. Each strand contains numerous, small-diameter wires. As the number of wires in each strand is increased, flexibility is increased… as wires per strand decreases, flexibility is decreased.
