Something You Need to Know about Rebar Tie Wire

Nov. 19, 2021

Rebar Tie Wire, also known as rebar tying wire, is made from the softest low carbon annealed steel wire. With fully galvanized and PVC coating on the surface, it offers excellent flexibility and corrosion resistance mainly used for tying and bundling reinforcing steel bars, supporting plants in gardens.

Features of Rebar Wire:

Excellent flexibility and softness. It has excellent flexibility and softness through the process of drawing, acid-washing, and annealing. Anti-corrosion and endurable. With galvanized and PVC coating on a surface, such soft annealed rebar tie wire can resist corrosion and not easily break. High standard and quality. It has perfect properties and makes your work more efficient without hurt.

Application of Rebar Tie:

Mainly used for supporting plants in gardens to protect and erect trees, vines, creepers. As package in daily life for grain potatoes, lime, canes, seed, bread, etc.

Rebar tie wire is popularly used in reinforcing steel bars, fixing concrete buildings, swimming pools. Recommended to be applied in bundling products such as wire, rod, lumber, PVC tubes, pipe.

Different kinds of ties, like sailing knots, are used based on contractor preference, and partially on the rigidity required. A stronger tie is used on vertical reinforcements if the steel contractor uses the form itself to reach upper levels. Tying rebar is generally done with the help of a metal hooking tool or a simple pair of pliers that can also cut the wire tie if necessary. Each tool allows the bending, pulling, and twisting of the thin wire ties to be accomplished as quickly and efficiently as possible.


Different types of ties:

Snap Tie: The most common “knot” is a single tie, and is accomplished simply by wrapping the wire once around the joint, twisting it a couple of turns, and either snapping it off or possibly cutting the long end of the wire. It is the type of tie most often used for horizontal surfaces, such as reinforced concrete foundations, and the rebar rests on chairs, cushions, or pads to keep it elevated above the dirt.

Wrap and Snap: A variation of the single is used to tie horizontal members to vertical supports in a way that prevents them from sliding down. Just as it sounds, the wire is wrapped around both members, then tied at one side and snapped clean.

Saddle Tie: Sometimes called the “U” tie, this is just a bit more complicated than the others, and in some regions, it is the preferred method. It is somewhat similar to a square knot, rather than forming a diagonal binding across the bar.

Wrap and Saddle: A one and a half loop around the steel adds a bit more security and rigidity, but it is finished the same as the standard saddle tie.

Figure Eight Tie: This is an alternative to the Wrap and Snap, and is a very secure tie for vertical reinforcement.

Which type of tie is right for you?

Ironworkers, like any other construction trade, have their own preferences, and as long as they conform to standard practices, all are sanctioned by engineers, architects and inspectors.
