Carbon Steel Wire

We are a leading supplier and distributor of the highest quality carbon steel wire on the market. Our wire products are trusted by major industrial customers for their strength, reliability, and durability. Offering an extensive portfolio of standard and specialty wire, Continental Steel is always ready to deliver.

Wire is available in both low carbon and high carbon quality steel. Low carbon wire is available as galvanized, bright, and annealed with wire processing options that include cold heading and straighten and cut. Used primarily for components in applications such as the construction, automotive and military. Carbon steel wire comes in diameters that range from 0.008” to 1.25” depending on the type.  This type of carbon wire forms easily and can handle moderate flattening and bending.

High carbon wire is used in diverse applications across various industries. We offer bright wire, galvanized wire, and PC wire in diameters ranging from 0.011” to 0.312” and strand and rope with diameters from 1/8” to ½”. Our exceptional high carbon wire is found in quality musical instruments and fine furniture as well as in construction and industrial applications.  This type of carbon steel wire is stronger due to the higher carbon content and less ductile than low carbon wire.

Our exhaustive inventory of carbon steel wire will meet the needs of any industry and application. Our metal fabrication services enable us give our customers what they want and need with unequaled quality and service. Carbon wire products supplied by Continental Steel & Tube cannot be matched by our competitors. For more information on our products and services, please contact us today.
