Wire Rod Shape and Size

The steel wire rod is a finished product and is cold-formed for farther processing. Although it has a variety of shapes, it is mostly rolled round. Diameters often range from 5 to 15 millimeters, with most comply with the ISO standards, makes it easy for the sizes to advance in increments of 1 mm to 20 mm.

All steel wire rods are formed into the coils without any break. This is to ensure that steel wire rods are well-prepared for farther processing (usually by heat treating, coating, and cleaning). The coils’ internal diameter often varies from 810 to 910 millimeters, and the external, from 1100 to 1300 millimeters (depends on the capability of mill’s equipment). Subsequently, the weight of the coils differs from approximately 600 kg and larger above 2 tons.

Carbon steel wire rod is the most common with no minimum content specified or required of molybdenum (Mo), aluminum (Al), chromium (Cr), niobium (Nb), cobalt (Co), nickel (Ni), tungsten (W), titanium (Ti), zirconium (Zr), vanadium (V), or any other element required for a particular effect of alloying. Carbon steel wire rods contain copper content, generally up to 0.40%. Moreover, the manganese content will not exceed the level of 1.65% and 0.60% will be the maximum level of silicon.
