Fishhook wire

Bekaert fish hook wire consists of a range of high-carbon steel wires or steel alloyed wires such as tungsten-vanadium. These wires feature excellent surface quality, high ductility and very consistent mechanical properties. Because of these features, Bekaert fishhook wire can easily be shaped and processed without losing any of its strength. 

These wires are suitable for a wide range of industrial and recreational fish hooks and have diameters ranging from 0.1 to 4.5 millimeters.

Strong and Flexible High-Carbon Wire For Your Application

Bekaert fish hook wire has a high carbon content resulting in a thin and sturdy hook. Unlike stainless steel, which might break under heavy strain, this wire is more likely to bend. The alloy composition of this high-carbon wire is also easier to process than stainless steel. The wire can be cut, bent, honed and hardened without losing its mechanical properties.

Meeting Your Production Needs

The wires are available in different packaging. The different coil types allow the wire to be easily unwound and formed without getting damaged in the process. This results in higher output and a significant reduction in waste.

Bekaert's fishhook wire solutions help streamline your production while maintaining the high quality of your final product. Our fishhook wire solutions offer various benefits for your production processes, including:

  • Exceptional stability for forming, barbing and pointing
  • Superior hardenability
  • Excellent coating properties for plating and galvanizing
