Bar wire is a very important part of any concrete business.
Rebar tie wire or bar wire secures and ties pieces of rebar together during the construction process. Bar wire is very pliable and durable. Tie wire is usually found on a roll or spool and is very easy to dispense. Rebar wire can also be used in baling machines. I use a plastic coated rebar wire in all of the baling machines at the recycling plant. Recycling of many different types comes to my business. I received glass, plastic, aluminum, and cardboard. All of the cardboard has to be placed in a bagel where it is crunched down to a smaller size. Each one of the bales of cardboard is secured using a piece of rebar tie wire. It is looped onto a double loop wire and secured in place for easy travel. The plastic coated rebar wire is best for my circumstance, because it does not cut into the cardboard. The plastic coated rebar wire has been on sale for the last 6 weeks. I have saved about $200 every week on supplies because of the cheaper rebar wire. Unfortunately, I ordered some supplies today and I found out that the plastic coated tie wire is no longer on sale. The coils of tie wire were back up to the regular price. I wish I would have known that the sale was going to end. I probably would have stocked up on more supplies while the cheap price was still happening. Now I’m stuck paying regular prices until the next sale.
