Steel Wire, Zinc Coated, Stainless Steel


Wire Types

Various types of wire are widely used in industry - steel, zinc coated, stainless, high-carbon and low-carbon, as well as other types of wire. Depending on the application and operating conditions, the optimal type of wire is selected for the manufacture of certain types of products.

Steel Wire

Low carbon steel wire is used in a variety of industries where the main requirement for the wire is its flexibility and ability to hold its shape. Low carbon wire is widely used in the production of various types of wire products, and is also used for assembly and packaging as a binding wire. Such wire is used for the manufacture of ordinary barbed wire, fences and other products for agriculture.

High Carbon Steel Wire

High-carbon steel wire is used for the manufacture of products in which the high strength of such a wire is important, as well as its spring properties - the ability to restore its shape after deformation. High-carbon wire is used for the manufacture of various kinds of springs and other similar products, as well as for weaving ropes. In addition, high-carbon wire is used in the production of razor wire because of its high strength and spring properties.

Zinc Coated Wire

Zinc coated wire is used where there is a risk of corrosion. Zinc coated is available as low-carbon wire and high-carbon wire. Both hot-dip zinc coating and galvanization can be used to coat the wire with zinc; in the first case, the quality of the zinc coating is higher. Products are made from zinc coated wire, which are operated in conditions of high humidity and in the open air. If wire products are used in an aggressive environment, then it is better to pay attention to stainless wire.

Stainless Steel Wire

Stainless wire is used for the manufacture of products that, during operation, come into contact with an aggressive environment - acid or alkali, as well as if a product made of such wire will be under the constant influence of aggressive natural factors - salt water and others. Examples of such products are products for the chemical and food industries, as well as concertina barbed wire, which is installed to protect objects on the coast of the seas and oceans, and is also used to protect ships from pirates. Stainless wire can be made from AISI 201, AISI 304, AISI 316, AISI 316Ti, AISI 321, AISI 430 and other types of stainless steel.
