The Definition of PC Wire
Prestress: Artificial compression stress to compensate tensile stress to be exerted from exterior force.
Prestressed Concrete: Concrete Structure built with Pre-Stress.
PC Wire and PC Strand: Steel Wire or Strands used to Pre-stress concrete structures.
Pre-stressed concrete is high-strength concrete that has internal steel wire reinforcement. Because pre-stressed concrete requires no coatings, it is a low-cost construction material.
Material: High carbon steel.
Standards: ASTM A421, ASTM A 881/A 881M, BS5896, JISG3536, ISO6934, EN10138, GB/T5223 or according to customers' requirements.
a. Export anti-rust packing with vapors corrosion inhibiting technology and wrapped 3 clothes outside the coil. There are a large wooden pallets on the bottom.
b. No cloth outside the coil.
Inquiry please provide: Standard, Diameter, Mechanical property (especially tensile strength), coil weight, packing dimension, Quantity etc.
PC Wire Types:
We offers major three types of PC wire including plain surface PC wire, spiral ribs PC wire and indented PC wire, widely used in reinforcement for concrete industry, such as large-span bridges on railway and highway, overhead crane beam, rock-soil anchoring Project, multi-storey industrial buildings, stadiums, coal mines and etc.
Our company has first-class PC wire production equipment, And Our PC wire production process have strict quality inspection.
PC Wire Application:
PC Wire and PC Strand have a wide range of use, such as bridges, crane beams, cement poles, prestressed concrete pressure pipe, multi-factory frameworks, subway, railway sleepers, poles, dams, nuclear power plants, high-rise buildings and houses, anchor, railway sleepers, panel, and concrete pipes, etc.
PC wire is used in major construction projects as a means of increasing the strength of cast concrete components, ranging from railway track sleepers, ground stabilizing piles, floor beams and pipe systems. The process involves the continuous heating and stretching of a cold drawn high-carbon steel wire to produce a finished product with a much improved yield stress and greatly reduced load relaxation.
Note: PC wire and strand require great caution because they can be easily damaged by improper handling, storage and installation.
