Wire Rod


Wire rod is produced by hot rolling billets on special continuous rolling mills. It is a long product formed into coils that is used as semi-product.

Depending on the chemical analysis and on the kind of use, wire rod can be classified into the following families:

  • Low carbon wire rod for the production of wire mesh for the construction industry and for the production of drawn wire (raw, annealed and coated)
  • Middle/high content carbon wire rod for the production of drawn wire
  • Welding wire
