Because wire rope is a premium quality product with demanding requirements, it is produced to rigorous internal standards which meet or exceed industry specifications.
Compositional aspects such as segregation control are achieved by controlled melting, casting and rod cooling practices. Surface decarburization is controlled by our walking beam reheat furnace practices, and our ultra heavy duty no-twist V-Block ensures exceptional dimensional control of the rod, which permits more accurate prediction of finished wire properties. Precise controlled cooling of the rod is possible via our modern Stelmor cooling conveyor. Our processes produce carbon steel grades of 1045 up to 1093 to meet the tensile refined grade requirements.
Due to the critical nature of this product, EVRAZ Rocky Mountain Steel employs selective scrap control along with electromagnet stirring both in the mold and below the mold to ensure our products meet the demanding requirements of this application. Tensile Refined grades are typically employed in these applications due to the requirement of precise final wire/strand tensile strength.
Tire Bead and Cord
The high strength, flexibility and adhesive qualities of steel bead and cord make it an ideal rubber reinforcing material. EVRAZ Rocky Mountain Steel produces 5.5 mm high-carbon rods to meet the high quality standards required by our customers. All heats are carefully analyzed for chemical components and the wire rod is critically inspected for surface and internal defects. Each heat of steel is processed as a single unit under controlled conditions.
