High carbon steel wires are produced by cold drawing process from high carbon steel wire rods with carbon content of 0.35% - 1%. Each wire is manufactured for specific application according to international or user’s standards.
High carbon steel wires are supplied either bright (no coating) or coated. Widely used coatings are Phosphate coating, Zinc coating (galvanized), Galfan coating, Bronze coating, Brass coating, Nickel coating and others.
Usually, high carbon steel wires have higher tensile strength than low carbon steel wires, therefore used for tougher applications.
