This is wire rod with a high carbon content. Depending on the final mechanical and technological properties required, we add various micro-alloys to the steel. Prestressing steels are used in the building industry and need to withstand the highest mechanical stresses. As a result, there are special requirements with regard to the tensile strength of the products.
The main applications for prestressing steel include
- bridge building
- industrial and residential construction
- railway construction
- wind power stations
