What Is Tie Wire Used For?
Tie wire is a versatile tool with several uses, but construction is the most popular. Many refer to it as “rebar tie wire” or “concrete reinforcement wire” because it reinforces the steel bars that live inside large concrete structures.
Construction workers have a set of wire tie tools that allow them to quickly wrap the wire around the rebar and twist it. They will repeat this process throughout the entire network of rebar mesh, significantly increasing the structural integrity of the concrete.
Most would assume that these steel bars are welded together, but it is much less common. Welding rebar together increases the heat of the metal, which can lead to serious structural issues down the line.
When building concrete structures, the last thing you want is stress fractures forming from the rebar. These issues are incredibly difficult to solve, and welded rebar is virtually impossible to replace without demolishing the original structure.
Stainless steel tie wire offers much more flexibility, allowing the concrete slabs and rebar to move independently without creating stress fractures. In fact, concrete inspectors will often require tie wire whether the rebar is weldable or not. It is just that much more effective.
Other Tie Wire Applications
Construction is not the only application for tie wire, however. Companies in many different industries use these products to ship materials. The lumber, agriculture, and scrap industries find tie wire to be particularly useful. They often refer to it as “baling wire” or “binding wire” because it is the easiest way to secure bales of materials prior to loading them onto trucks.
Wood, hay, straw, rubber, tires, scrap metal, cotton, and wool are just a few examples of things you can transport with steel tie wire. Construction companies will even use it to ship the rebar they plan to use in their projects.
You will also find tie wires on farms in the form of fencing. It is one of the most cost-effective ways for farmers to seal off outdoor pens. Not only is it quick and easy to install, but it can also connect to an electric fencing system to discourage animals from jumping out or running through.

How Is Tie Wire Made?
Here at Brookfield, we use wire drawing to manufacture all our metal wire products. This is the best process for creating high-quality wire, and with our state-of-the-art wire drawing equipment, we can maintain higher levels of precision and quality control for every project. We also offer quick lead times and competitive pricing for high-volume production.
The wire drawing process starts with reducing metal rods at their cross-sections and continuously feeding the wire through our drawing dies. The metal rod will progressively decrease in diameter as the drawing process progresses. We will repeatedly draw the wire until it meets your exact requirements.
Our tie wire products offer the following features and advantages:
What Is Tie Wire Made Of?
Tie wire is most often manufactured with stainless steel, especially for construction applications. It offers the most tensile strength and over durability, so it is the best choice for long-term use.
Steel wire ties also go through an annealing process. What is annealing? Annealing is a heat-treating process that impacts both the physical and chemical properties of the metal. it significantly improves the flexibility of the wire and makes it easier to bend and tie around rebar and other materials.
While stainless steel is the most common choice, it is not the only option. We offer a full range of high-quality metal alloys to choose from. It all depends on the type of project you are working on.
Tie Wire Metal Alloys
Wire drawing with 300 series stainless steel is a Brookfield specialty, but we can also work with a wide variety of other alloys. Our electric strand annealing furnaces allow us to process nearly any type of wire for rolling, shaping, or die drawing.
With global purchasing, we give our customers access to a full range of quality metal alloys. We source our materials only from the most reliable domestic and NATO suppliers, so we can guarantee higher quality products with the lowest possible pricing. Check out our tie wire alloy selection below:
