Everything You Need to Know About Different Types of Wires from Straight Wire Manufacturers & Export

Updated: Feb 16, 2023

A binding wire is used to tie construction materials. It is widely used in the construction industry to secure rebars at their joints in order to ensure the integrity of a building. A binding wire is arranged in a way that offers quality, strength, adaptability, and non-abrasiveness. As a result of their tensile strength, they are capable of knotting without breaking. Binding wires are usually light steel wires designed for binding rebars in the field of construction. Consequently, they are also known as annealed steel wires since they are extremely robust, flexible, and reusable.

Importance of Different Types of Wires:

There are many types of baling wires available on the market, including soft coils, cut wire, etc. The best way to determine which wire is right for you is to ask your local dealer about the different types.

These are the 5 types of baling wires:

1. Single Loop Wire:

Single loop baling wire is made from black annealed wire and galvanized wire using medium carbon steel. Due to its flexibility, the single-loop wire can be cut according to requirements, ensuring minimal waste.

2. Double-Loop Wire:

This type of baling wire comes in pre-cut lengths. It has loops on both ends. A double-loop baling wire is an ideal choice for bales or materials with a high expansion force as well as high production applications. A double-loop wire is quite popular in the recycling industry due to its ease of use.

3. Black Annealed Wire:

Compared to other types of baling wire, black annealed wire is relatively soft. Furthermore, it prevents the wire from corroding or wearing down over time.

4. Boxed Wire:

This type of wire is made from specialized black annealed wire. The wire can be used on any single ram auto-tie baler.

5. High Tensile Wire:

High tensile baling wire can be used to bale a wide range of recycled products that require strong wire to hold them together.

Types of Wires and their Characteristics:

1. Copper Wires:

Copper is an easy-to-work metal that conducts heat and electricity well. It is therefore used as wire due to its ductile and malleable properties as well as its superior heat and electrical conductivity as well as its corrosion resistance.

2. Aluminum Wire:

Aluminum wire is a wire product made from aluminum and aluminum alloy wire blanks. The thermal expansion coefficient is higher, it is cheaper and lighter than copper wiring, and it has a higher specific electrical resistance.

3. Steel Wire:

Steel is the standard alloy used in ropes and cables. Despite its strength, it is much more resistant to corrosion than galvanized or coated ropes.

4. Metal Alloys:

An alloy consists of a mixture of chemical components, one of which must be a metal. It has all the characteristics of a metal, including electrical conductivity, opacity, ductility, and luster.

STRAIGHT WIRE manufactures wires using ultramodern technology and best-quality raw materials that comply with international standards. The products go through strict testing before they are released to the market.

Here are different types of wires from Straight Wire Manufacturers & Exporters:

1) TW1061T Tie Wire:

TW1061T is exclusively used for tying rebar to a MAX REBAR. Ideally suited for marine or other harsh environment applications using precast or pre-stressed concrete.

Product Description


· Grade of the wire: Q195 2

· Size of the wire 1.0mm

· Standard: Galvanized wire and black annealed

· Has Certification: ISO9001, SGS, CTI, ROHS

In general, black annealed wire is used for weaving and baling. Also known as black annealed iron wire, this wire is made of carbon steel wire and is used to erect large structures and residences. A black oxide finish is applied to this low carbon steel, dead soft annealed wire to provide a thin, mildly corrosion-resistant surface. It is commonly used in construction, precast, and pre-stressed concrete applications. There are three main types of black annealed wire: coil wire, spool wire, and big package wire. You can also straighten and cut the wire into cut wires and U-type wires. Compared to black iron wire, a black annealed wire has a softer and more flexible texture. Various properties are added to the annealed wire by thermal annealing to make black annealed binding wire. The benefits of black annealed wires include high durability, fine finish, superior quality, and corrosion resistance.

Straight Wires, one of the leading black annealed wire suppliers, provides prompt and efficient delivery of black annealed wires. In addition to being made of superior raw materials, our black annealed wires provide long-lasting tensile strength and longer service life.

Our Product Specifications:

· Diameter: 0.4mm to 6mm

· Coil Weight: 1kg to 800kg

· Coil Dimensions: Single Coil of a continuous strand (No welded Joins)

· Carbon: 0.06-0.12%

· Tensile Strength: 300 – 350 MPa (40-50kg/mm)

· Elongation: 30%-35%

· Internal Diameter: 480mm/630mm

· External Diameter: 550mm/700mm

3) Galvanized Wire:

The most commonly used wire finish for bale ties is galvanized. In galvanizing, raw steel or bright basic wire is dipped in molten zinc and coated. In many cases, this occurs close to the drawing process or immediately after the wire has been drawn to the desired thickness or gauge.

As a result of galvanizing, bale ties can be used in wet and humid conditions without compromising their structural integrity. The use of galvanized bale ties is recommended when storing your baled material in an exposed location. Compared to black annealed bale ties, galvanized wire is stiffer and has less elongation. Among the three types of finishes, galvanized wire offers the greatest durability and versatility, particularly when storing bales outside.

As a result of its strength, galvanized steel wire is an excellent choice for building homes and businesses. Due to its all-weather properties, galvanized steel wire is so popular among builders.

Product Specifications:

Galvanized for application in highly corrosive environments, our premium 16 ga Steel Galvanized Bar Tie protects the product's integrity during the placing process and prevents corrosion of the reinforcing bars to ensure structure longevity. These are made of 100% melted steel, also known as cable ties, to provide assurance that rebar stays in the proper position.

4)Electro-galvanized wire:

This type of wire, also known as cold galvanized wire, is made of high-quality carbon steel wire. The wire is primarily used to make nails and wire ropes, wire mesh and fencing, binding flowers, and weaving wire mesh.

5)Hot-Dipped Galvanized Wire:

Galvanizing iron base metal that has already been galvanized by another layer of zinc alloy coating is called Hot Dipped Galvanized Wire. Strong corrosion resistance and high tensile strength are provided by hot-dipped galvanized wire with firm zinc coating. It is widely used for making handicrafts, weaving wire mesh, forming fencing mesh, and packaging products.

6) U-type wire:

This kind of tie wire, is made of iron wire, annealed wire, galvanized wire and PVC coated wire, etc. The U-type wire exhibits good corrosion and oxidation resistance. It is widely applied to fix daily subjects, industrial construction tying, etc.

7) Steel Fibers:

Steel fibers mixed into the concrete can provide an alternative to the provision of conventional steel bars or welded fabric in some applications. The most common applications for steel-fiber-reinforced concrete are industrial floors and pavements.
