With any wire rope, you need to consider the load capacity above all else, because it is this factor which will determine whether or not it will be safe to use in the context that you have in mind.
For instance this 3mm diameter 6x19 rope, that limit is set at 552kg. This allows for half-tonne loads to be hauled without issue.
Coating steel wire rope in plastic is done to provide protection, both for any surface the rope comes into contact with in addition to the rope itself. Where moisture, sunlight and chemical substances might compromise a rope in certain settings, the plastic shields the steel and therefore ensures additional longevity is achievable.
Ultimately you can control exactly how your rope is constructed and supplied, up to and including fittings.
