Coil Weights

Wire Rope

Because wire rope is a premium quality product with demanding requirements, EVRAZ Pueblo produces this product to rigorous internal standards which meet or exceed industry specifications.

Compositional aspects such as segregation control are achieved by controlled melting, casting and rod cooling practices. Surface decarburization is controlled by our walking beam reheat furnace practices, and our Morgan Ultra Heavy Duty No-Twist V-Block ensures exceptional dimensional control of the rod, which permits more accurate prediction of finished wire properties. Precise controlled cooling of the rod is possible via our modern Stelmor cooling conveyor. Our processes produce carbon steel grades of 1045 up to 1080 to meet the tensile refined grade requirements.

PC Strand

Due to the critical nature of this product, EVRAZ Pueblo employs selective scrap control along with caster mold stirring to ensure our products meet the demanding requirements of this application. Tensile Refined grades are typically employed in these applications due to the requirement of precise final wire/strand tensile strength.

Tire Bead and Cord

Representative chemical specification










Tire Bead and Cord

The high strength, flexibility and adhesive qualities of steel bead and cord make it an ideal rubber reinforcing material. EVRAZ Pueblo produces 5.5 mm high-carbon rods to meet the high quality standards required by our customers. All heats are carefully analyzed for chemical components and the wire rod is critically inspected for surface and internal defects. Each heat of steel is processed as a single unit under controlled conditions.

Coiled Reinforcing Bar

Our Coiled Reinforcing Bars represent some of the highest quality rebar products in the world. EVRAZ Pueblo coiled reinforcing bar exhibits excellent tensile and yield strength deformation uniformity, microstructure, and chemical control. These attributes provide our customers with superior, consistent performance and value.

The EVRAZ Pueblo facility produces ASTM A615, ASTM A706 and Dual Grade grades of deformed rebar ranging in size from #3 to #5 through our vblock.

Sizes available in 4,200 lb coils

  • #3 (10 mm)
  • #4 (13 mm)
  • #5 (16 mm)

And #6 and #7 ASTM A615 and ASTM A706 available from our pouring reels in 2,800 lb coils

Also available: smooth reinforcing bar grades in our rod size range.
