18GA Rebar Wire Ties in 304-Grade Stainless Steel
These eighteen gauge wire ties and made with ultra-soft steel, chemically engineered to be “stainless” and hold up in the harshest of conditions. As a relatively thin gauge of wire, 18-GA stainless steel offers a nice blend of durability and pliability. Our 18-Gauge wire leaves the factory at a diameter of 0.0475″.
Stainless Steel Fasteners for Concrete & Other Outdoor Projects
Manufactured for use in holding together grids of rebar, especially in coastal climates, these wire ties find their way into all sorts of jobs. Our stainless ties are often used for irrigation projects, scaffolding, pool construction, driveways, apartment complexes, retailers, grocery and produce bag closures.
Eighteen Gauge Stainless Steel Wire Ties
Our stainless steel wire ties are sold in bulk, with 5000 individual ties included per bag. Lengths available range from 4″ to 16″. These ties are consistently manufactured to strict quality specifications. Don’t settle for less with something your structure is relying on!
Common Usage of 18GA Stainless Steel Wire Ties
Rebar wire ties are used for securing and binding reinforcing steel bars (or fiberglass bars), also known as rebar, together in construction projects. These steel bars are typically used to reinforce concrete structures, such as foundations, walls, and beams, and the wire ties provide a secure and reliable way to hold the bars in place. Rebar wire ties are often used in conjunction with rebar tying tools, which are specially designed pliers that twist the wire ties tightly around the rebar. This creates a strong and stable structure that can withstand the weight and pressure of the concrete. The wire ties can also be used to connect rebar to other materials, such as mesh or timber, in order to create a more complex and durable structure.
Comparing the Types of 18ga Ties
Rebar wire ties come in a variety of gauges, lengths, and materials, including black annealed wire, galvanized wire, and the ultimate in corrosion resistance, stainless steel wire. The specific type of wire tie used will depend on the requirements of the project, such as the size and weight of the rebar being used, the location of the project, and the environmental conditions. Regardless of the specific requirements, however, rebar wire ties are an essential component in any construction project that requires reinforced concrete structures. If budget allows, stainless steel is typically the ideal material and most preferred by concrete contractors as well as DIYers and anyone else putting together an outdoor project.
