Types Of Square Wire and Its Uses
A wire is formed by drawing the metal into a flexible rod. Wires come in different shapes and sizes. Shaped wires can be categorized as round wire, rectangular wire, flat wire, and square wire. The square wire is a type of shaped wire which represents the shape of a square. It requires a rolling and annealing process to produce a square wire. Square wires are specifically used for making industrial products.
Types of Square wires:
High carbon steel square wire: This is a type of square wire which contains carbon in the range of 0.6 percent to 1.0 percent. High carbon steel square wire is vulnerable to heat and as a result, it can be worked into many different forms.
Silver square wire: This wire is manufactured by the process of annealing which gives it strength and allows it to bend into the desired shape. It is mostly preferred in banding designs.
Square green GI PVC coated wire: It is a square wire which is green in color coated with polyvinyl chloride. It is mainly used for industrial, agricultural, and fencing purposes.
Plastic square wire: This square wire is made from plastic by the process of rolling. This wire is generally used for fencing.
Grades of materials used in making square wires:
Stainless steel: Stainless steel is used for making square wires. Stainless steel is an iron-based steel alloy that is corrosion resistant. It contains a minimum of 11% chromium. it is not damaged if exposed to high temperatures as it is resistant to heat and fire.
Nickel Alloy: Nickel alloy is also useful in high-temperature environments due to its high strength, toughness, and superior corrosion resistance. Hence, it is used in making square wire. MONEL (1) alloy 400 is a high nickel-copper alloy that has the strength of mild steel and will never corrode when used in industrial applications.
Mild steel: Mild steel is one of the important materials used in making square wires. It contains a small percentage of carbon but is strong and easily worked.
Aluminum: It is the most commonly used material for manufacturing square wires due to its low density and corrosion-resistant properties.
Copper: Although copper has low tensile strength it has favorable corrosion-resistant properties.
