Exceptional quality guarantee

As one of the largest baling wire manufacturing companies in North America, we strive to provide our customers with high-quality wire products.

At Baling Wire Direct, we carry out meticulous testing on all of our products to ensure they perform to the highest industry standards. Wire that fails to meet our quality assurance criteria is removed from stock, ensuring only the strongest and most reliable carrier wire reaches our customers.

We have perfected all aspects of production and distribution to deliver exceptional products, competitive prices, and unrivaled customer service.

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

Bale ties made in America

We monitor and control every aspect of our wire production process from start to finish. It all begins with raw steel wire rods purchased from family-owned American mills. Metallurgical traceability documents guarantee the chemical composition needed to ensure precise load capacity and tensile strength specifications.

Our team of over 120 trained staff and 5 on-site engineers then subject the steel wire to a mechanical descaling process. Descaling eliminates the presence of harsh chemicals to further improve wire quality, reduce environmental impact, and keep our workers safe.

Next, the baling wire enters a bull-block drawing machine to undergo incremental diameter reductions. Our machine closely monitors temperature and internal grain structure to optimize consistency. The wire is then rapidly air-cooled to produce a uniform microstructure and maximize tensile strength.

Once drawn and treated, the wire is cut and formed into durable bale ties. Single loop ties are cut and bent to include one loop, while double loop ties are cut with a loop at both ends. These can be used in manual balers and other hand-tie baling applications.

The annealing process

Annealing involves heating the steel above its recrystallization temperature, maintaining that temperature, and then cooling it.

The process creates a uniform atomic structure, increases ductility, and reduces brittleness. The result: smooth wire that is easy to use, flexible, and durable.

After annealing, we apply a coat of wax to the finished product. This surface treatment provides a final layer of protection and also produces gorgeous wire that never leaves a mess and feeds smoothly in automatic baling machines.

Advantages of black annealed wire

Black annealed wire offers several advantages over other types of wire:

  1. Improved ductility and flexibility: the annealing process softens the wire, making it more pliable and easier to bend.
  2. High tensile strength: despite being softer than other finishes, black annealed wire still maintains a high tensile strength.
  3. Wide range of applications: due to its versatility, black annealed wire can be used in various industries and applications, such as packaging, construction (reinforcing steel bars, binding materials), and agriculture (fencing, trellises).
  4. Ease of use: annealed wire is softer, making it easier to cut, shape, and handle.

It's important to note that while the black annealed wire is resistant to damage, it is more prone to rust compared to other types of wire such as galvanized wire.

Other wire products we sell

Beyond annealed single loop bale ties, we sell a wide range of additional wire products including high-tensile wire, galvanized wire, and double loop bale ties.
