Between 5.5 mm and 18 mm in diameter, Ege Celik Wire rod is produced for applications of cold drawing to finer sizes, welding electrodes, welding wires, wire rope and springs, fasteners and general cold heading, pre-stressed concrete wires, bead wire and tire cords.
Selected scrap is charged to the electric arc fumaces in order to control the impurity elements such as Cu, Cr and Ni, Level of total impurities is kept minimum by adding Pig Iron and HBI to the scrap.
Eccentric bottom tapping and bottom purging system are employed at the electric ard furnaces in order to control the slag amount and composition.
Final product is inspected with narrow tolerances both in size and shape.
Surface oxide is suitable for mechanical descaling and chemical pickling.
Wire rods of 5.5-18 mm are compacted and secured automatically by four wire ties into coils of 1500 kg. Two tags covering the details of the heat are attached.
Traceability of the product is ensured with production certificates of every heat.
Certificates with chemical analysis and mechanical properties allow the product to be traced until after final use.
These grades are produced according to ASTM and DIN standards. It is possible to produce other grades with some deviations in analysis on special request.
