What Is Binding Wire?
Binding Wire is used for the purpose of tying applications in the field of construction. It is used extensively in the construction sector for tying the rebars at the joints so as to keep the structure intact.
Binding wire is also called annealed wire and is made of mild steel. Annealing endows it with the properties like flexibility and softness, required for its main use.
Binding wire is available in different diameters ranging from 0.61 mm to 1.22 mm.
The application of binding wire requires it to be flexible enough so as to tie easily and strong enough so as to hold the joint in place. There are various methods used for tying the joints.

Why Steel Are Binds By Binding Wire?
One of the major use of binding wires is to keep the reinforcement provided in proper place because without the binding wire reinforcement will be free to move which could lead to increase in spacing between reinforcement in a particular section and decrease in a particular section which can lead to the decrease in strength and ductility of the structure and increase the chances of failure.
Purpose of Binding Wire
1- Maintain the accurate design location,orientation (direction) of steel bars. To prevent dislocation of the steel bars when pouring concrete on them; when consolidating the concrete with vibrator and when workers walk over them.
2- They hold the lapped bars in the ideal position.
3- To secure secondary’s like chairs, spacer bars etc in position during construction.
4- For miscellaneous construction related purposes.
