B450A/C and B500A/B quality steel is obtained by cold rolling or stretching wire rod.
This product has considerable mechanical characteristics, and is used in subsequent production processes (welded wire mesh, lattice girders and brackets used to assembly metal reinforcements) and as a finished product.
It can be produced with cold rolled wire (starting from a diameter of 4 mm) and hot rolled wire (from 6 mm to 16 mm), by joining the longitudinal and transversal wires using electric resistance welding to form a panel of the desired dimensions. Easily applied, welded mesh is mainly used for paving, industrial floors, wall reinforcement and for the restoration of dwellings.
Extremely easy to use with a high quality content. The mechanical properties of weldable hot-rolled coils, combined with a compact packaging size which is nevertheless of considerable weight, facilitate storage in confined spaces. The special coil-on-coil processing ensures accurate and faster coil unwinding, giving considerable increases in output. The reduced number of daily changes results in fewer downtimes, less scrap and a higher level of safety.
The Feralpi Group is one of Europes leading manufacturers of steels for use in building construction. The parent company Feralpi Siderurgica, which was set up in 1968 in Lonato del Garda, near Brescia, has developed steadily over the years to form a group of industries that currently turn out two million tonnes of steel and rolled products a year, and has a workforce of 1500 permanent employees in Italy, Europe and North Africa.
