100% American bale tie wire

We're proud of the wire products we produce, and our quality guarantee is built into our manufacturing process.

It all starts with American steel that we buy from trusted, family-owned mills. To ensure our steel hits the mark each time, we require metallurgical traceability documents to be provided with every purchase.

From there our 120-person production staff and 5 onsite engineers get to work making our black annealed wire. The steel is subjected to a mechanical reverse-bending descaling technique that reduces die wear while removing scale and rust to create a scale-free, smooth wire. 

Our mechanical approach eliminates the need to use dangerous chemicals, which serves to keep staff safe and reduce our environmental impact.

Next, the bale wire is drawn through a heavy-duty bull-block continuous wire machine, and then it is air-cooled to ensure consistent tensile strength. Once the wire has cooled, it’s sent on to be annealed

What is the annealing process?

The uniformity of a wire’s atomic structure can be improved through a process called annealing. The annealing process involves heating steel above its recrystallization temperature, maintaining that temperature, and then cooling it. The result is an increasingly ductile and flexible wire that still retains its strength.

After annealing, we apply a coat of wax to the finished product. This treatment provides additional protection and also smooths the wire so that it feeds easily into many types of balers without creating a mess.

The benefits of annealed wire

Black annealed wire is popular because of its many benefits, these include:

  1. Improved ductility and flexibility: the annealing process softens the wire, making it more pliable and easier to bend.
  2. Wide range of applications: black annealed wire can be used to bale foam, carpet, ABS plastics, textiles, tissue paper, copper, aluminum cans, and much more.
  3. Ease of use: the softened state of the wire makes it easier to cut, shape, and handle.
  4. High tensile strength: despite its flexibility, black annealed wire still maintains a high tensile strength that allows it to withstand pressure.

It's worth noting that black annealed wire is more prone to rusting compared to galvanized wire. However, rust doesn’t necessarily impact the wire’s tensile strength. If strength is a primary concern, consider trying our high-tensile 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.
