Strand Iron Wire is a metal product that is widely used at present. It is made up of multiple steel wires. Due to its different characteristics, its material is also different. There are three main types: steel stranded wire, aluminum-clad steel stranded wire and stainless steel stranded wire. Made of monofilament and stranded wire, there are 2, 3, 7 and 19 filaments, the most common of which is the 7-wire structure. According to the demand, its coating can increase the galvanization layer, copper plating layer, zinc-aluminum alloy layer, aluminum-clad layer, epoxy coating and the like.
Maybe we hear more about steel bars, the same metal products. Do you know the difference between them?
First of all, from the appearance, the diameter of the steel bar is relatively thick, and it is a single-strand steel wire, and the steel strand is a thick cable formed by twisting a plurality of strands of steel wire. Secondly, from the perspective of use, steel strands are mainly used for: load-bearing cables, pull cables, reinforcing cores, bottom wires, etc., while steel bars are more used for large-scale, light-thin, thin-walled, heavy-duty, high-rise buildings. In fact, in some respects, steel strands can replace steel, but the cost will increase.
Steel Wire Mesh is also very common, and we still need to know more about this kind of thing that is commonly used in industry.
