Wire rod is made of billet steel; therefore wire rod is
categorized as bar product, to distinguish it from the hot and cold
rolled coil made of slab steel. Wire rods are usually classified
according to the content of the carbon, which are wire rods with
low, medium, or high carbons. In addition, wire rods are also
classified based on their applications.
Low and medium wire rods have carbon contentof less than 0.25. This
kind of steel is commonly used for wire, nails, wire mesh, and as
basic material for welded fabrication (window or door lattices,
fences, and bars).
Specific application such as layered electrode wire for welding
purpose requires a very tight control in terms of alloy content as
preferred by customers.
Other applications require higher pull strength. These applications
require high carbon content (usually more than 0.40) with the
addition of a number of alloys, such as Nb, V, and Cr to produce
bar steels with better pull strength and formability. High carbon
wire rods are generally used for spring beds, bicycle (motorcycle)
wheel trellis, umbrella frames, and other constructions.
Wire rod applications include:
