Products and applications

Our core competences: Steel wire transformation & coating technologies

For over 135 years, we have been transforming steel wire and applying unique coating technologies.  Every day, we continuously improve both the bulk and the surface properties of our steel wire products.

We draw steel wire in different strengths and diameters, even as thin as ultrafine fibers of one micron.  We bundle the wires into cords, ropes and strands, profile them into complex shapes, weave or knit them into fabric, or process them into an end product.

Depending on your application, coatings are applied which reduce friction, improve corrosion resistance, or enhance adhesion to other materials.
