Quality is our priority

Baling Wire Direct is one of the largest baling wire manufacturing companies in North America. That’s why we strive to provide our customers with the highest quality products. Our baler wire is created under the highest standards of quality and performance.

Our dedication to quality is unparalleled. We carry out meticulous testing on all of our products to ensure they perform to the highest industry standards. Wire that fails to pass our quality testing is removed from stock, ensuring only strong and reliable carrier wire reaches our customers.

We control every aspect of production and distribution, which allows us to deliver premium products, the lowest prices, and unparalleled customer service.

Our Autoship™ system keeps you informed every step of the way, ensuring the smoothest possible purchasing experience. Receive tracking information via email or text message. Enjoy quick delivery in as little as 1–3 business days!

About the galvanizing process

Our 7-step galvanizing process goes as follows:

  • Surface preparation: first, the wire is cleaned to remove any surface impurities. This ensures proper adhesion of the zinc coating.
  • Pickling: the wire is immersed in an acid solution to remove any remaining oxides and scale. This process prepares the surface for galvanizing by creating a clean substrate.
  • Fluxing: the wire is then immersed in a flux solution (zinc ammonium chloride), which prevents oxidation and promotes a uniform application of the zinc coating.
  • Galvanizing bath: next, the wire is dipped into a 450°C (850°F) bath of molten zinc.
  • Alloy formation: while immersed in the molten zinc, a metallurgical reaction occurs between the iron in the wire and the zinc, resulting in the formation of a series of zinc-iron alloy layers. These provide excellent abrasion and corrosion resistance.
  • Withdrawal: the wire is gradually withdrawn from the zinc bath. The rate at which the withdrawal takes place is controlled to allow excess zinc to drain off and ensure the final product has an even coating.
  • Quenching: the coated wire is then quenched in water or a quenching solution to cool it rapidly. This process solidifies the zinc coating and completes the galvanizing process.

After the wire is galvanized, an optional wax coat can be applied to the galvanized wire. This creates a clean surface finish and also provides additional protection. The smooth wire finish prevents scrap metal messes and always feeds properly into automatic baling machines.

Classes 3 galvanization

There are different galvanization classes corresponding to different levels of longevity and protection. We galvanize our products to Class 3, unlike many competitors that settle for Class 1 galvanization. This ensures that our wire can bear the elements and stand the test of time. 

Class 3 galvanized wire is given a zinc coat that is much thicker than Class 1. Whereas Class 1 wire coating uses 0.28 ounces of zinc per square foot, Class 3 uses a thicker coating of 0.80 ounces per square foot. 

Class 3 wire will last anywhere from 13–30 years before it rusts (compared to Class 1’s 2–11 year lifespan), making it well worth the investment.

Galvanized bale ties versus bright bale ties

We sell baling ties in two finishes: galvanized and bright. They are both used to bundle materials together, but their coating gives them different advantages.

Galvanized double-loop ties are better when:

  • Bales will be stored in contact with the elements
  • The material baled is corrosive

Raw steel ties, or bright wire ties, are uncoated. They are best when:

  • Bales are stored away from the elements
  • Budget is a priority
  • The bales might expand (bright bale ties have more elasticity than galvanized)
  • Bales are client-facing, requiring a slightly nicer appearance.

The choice between galvanized and bright bale ties depends on the specific requirements of the baling operation, including the type of material being baled, the environmental conditions, and the need for corrosion resistance.

Other wire products we sell

We offer a wide range of additional products beyond double loop bale ties. Other wire products we sell include galvanized wire, black annealed wire, single loop bale ties, and more.
