Steel tape and wire – characteristics and applications
» News » Steel tape and wire - characteristics and applications
Steel tape and wire are hardware products of a universal nature. They are used:
in industry – as a basis for the production of parts;
in construction – to reinforce reinforced concrete structures or to firmly fasten individual elements of a building;
in logistics – for packing goods during their transportation.
You can buy high quality steel tape and wire on the A-Sintez website.
Steel tape: characteristics and applications
Steel strip is obtained by cold rolling of metal. To increase the strength, increase the service life and resistance to negative external factors, the finished product is strengthened (using work hardening, training) and an anti-corrosion coating (zinc, lacquer, polymer) is applied. By purpose, steel tapes are divided into industrial (used as a basis for the manufacture of metal parts) and packaging. The following products are packed using steel straps:
building and finishing materials (concrete blocks, bricks, glass, wood panels);
rolled metal products (steel sheets, strips
metal and polymer pipes;
solid products (furniture, machines, tanks).
Hard-worked steel bands can withstand more weight and almost do not stretch – they are used in heavy industry, while soft ones are used for packing medium-heavy goods (250-500 kg). In both cases, it is convenient to use mechanical, pneumatic or manual type packaging machines to fix and secure the ends of the tape.
Steel wire: characteristics and applications
Steel wire is obtained by passing the warp (wire rod) through drawing machines. The cost of steel wire depends on its diameter, length and weight.
The high quality of the wire and its resistance to adverse conditions provide:
The thickness of the product – the thicker it is, the stronger the wire, however, as the thickness increases, bendability decreases. According to modern standards, the wire diameter should be in the range of 0.16-10 mm.
The presence of an anti-corrosion zinc coating – it increases the service life of the product in conditions of high temperature or humidity (the wire becomes stainless).
Annealing (treatment at high temperature) makes the wire softer and provides excellent bendability.
The use of mild steel increases the strength of the finished product.
They are used in industry, in the subsidiary farm, for domestic and decorative purposes. Wires and cables, cables and ropes, chain-link mesh, springs, needles, strings and other products necessary for everyday life and production are made from wire.
