Wire rod for mesh
Celsa produce a mild steel coil which is also known as wire rod for mesh. This mesh coil is used by some fabricators in the production of reinforcing mesh. The wire rod is produced on our rod line, which can achieve speeds of up to 90 metres per second during production. The material is laid on the cooling beds via a laying head where it cools before being stacked and bound vertically.
Wire rod for mesh is produced in a wild coil format and has a carbon content of ≤ 0.18% in diameters between 5.5mm and 17mm. Coil weight is 2.2 tonnes.
All our Wire Rod for Mesh is certified to the BES 6001 responsible sourcing standard through the Eco-Reinforcement

- Wire rod for mesh is used as feedstock for the production of Grade 500A high yield coil which is used predominantly in the production of reinforcing mesh for concrete.
- Celsa wire rod has a yield strength of 300 N/mm2. Once sold to mesh producers, the mild steel coil is fed into a cold rolling line where it is work hardened increasing the yield strength to over 500N/mm2, and has ribs indented onto the surface of the material.
- Reinforcing mesh is a produced by welding together a series of lengths of horizontal and vertical reinforcing bars, in a grid formation. Mesh reinforcement mats are predominantly used to reduce cracking in concrete slabs.
