The Department of Transport Specification for Highway Works requires that 1.2mm stainless steel tying wire is used for fixing all types of reinforcement on exposed faces of bridges, roads and other structures.
The use of stainless steel tying wire provides long tern protection against corrosion and also prevents rust staining on the concrete surface should the wire encroach into the concrete cover.
Stainless steel tying wire is soft and easily bent and twisted. In addition to being used to fix reinforcement bars and reinforcement mesh, stainless steel tying wire can also be used for fixing insulation products.
