Annealed Wire: baling wire that has been made softer and more flexible through its chemistry and heat treatment. Accent Wire Tie offers black annealed former wire.

Baling Wire: also known as bale wire, is a type of wire used to band or secure together corrugated cardboard, paper, plastic, aluminum, foam, tires, textiles and other materials that are processed in the waste and recycling industry. Baling wire used in the agriculture industry for to bind bales of hay, or straw, is also known as hay wire.

Elongation: amount of permanent give or stretch a strand of baling wire can withstand before breaking

Hi-tensile Wire: baling wire although still ductile, is more rigid than annealed wire. It is used mainly in two-ram balers. Galvanised hi-tensile former wire will have a tensile strength of 1000-1400 N/mm2.

Tensile Strength: greatest amount of longitudinal stress or force a wire can withstand before breaking. This number is expressed in N/mm2 (Newton Per Square Millimeter). Baling wire with low tensile strength will break under a lesser load than baling wire with high tensile strength.

Yield: the point of tension at which elongation begins.
