Galvanized Stay Wire - Wire and Strand for ACSR reinforcement Core Wires

Galvanized wire and strand hot dipped galvanised is extremely flexible and soft, extensively used as galvanized steel core wire for reinforcing, especially for ACSR reinforcement.

Materials: Choice mild steel wire

Processing: Wire drawing, acid washing and rust removing, galvanizing, annealing and coiling.

What is ACSR and Uses
ACSR cable is a Aluminium conductor steel-reinforced cable, a device used in overhead transmission and distribution across rivers and valleys and other spacious areas. ACSR cable wire offers good electrical conductivity and sufficient mechanical strength, large tensile strength, composed of cold drawn aluminum wire and high tensile galvanized steel wire.

Why Galvanized Steel Wire for ACSR
Galvanized wire used as the ACSR core wire shall have a high tensile strength and heavy zinc coating corrosion resistance property. The wire strand shall be twisted evenly and tightly. The direction of each layer of ACSR is opposite, and the direction of the outer layer of ACSR is right. The twisted steel core is naturally arranged. After the steel core is cut off, the steel core is easy to reset.

Stranded galvanized steel wire is made of carbon steel zinc plated. The single wires are concentrically stranded and wrapped helically around a central wire. Wire numbers are single wire, 7 wire strand, 19 wire strand, etc.
