Since 1979, Sumiden Wire has manufactured seven-wire prestressed concrete steel strand (PC strand) in the United States. We are able to offer a wide range of sizes and grades as specified in ASTM A416. With manufacturing in both California and Tennessee, we are able to reliably supply your PC strand needs nationwide. We are in the process of adding a new manufacturing location in Texas scheduled to open 1st half 2017. For specifications, click here.
EPOXY COATED PC STRAND
Sumiden Wire manufactures ASTM A882 epoxy coated PC strand in the same size range as uncoated PC strand. We also offer three different surface finishes depending on the required strand-to-concrete bond performance: no grit, fine grit and coarse grit. Our epoxy coated PC strand not only covers the outside of the strand, but also all internal voids are completely filled. See our epoxy coated strand data pages for additional information.
STAINLESS STEEL PC STRAND (NEW)
Protecting structures against corrosion damage is a concern for owners across the United States. In addition to offering epoxy coated strand, Sumiden Wire is proud to be the first US PC strand manufacturer to offer high-strength, low-relaxation stainless steel PC strand. This innovative new product is produced using a duplex alloy 2205 wire rod that is melted and manufactured here in the US; therefore compliant with all Buy-America and Buy-American requirements.
INVESTING IN THE FUTURE
To maintain competitiveness and quality, we routinely re-invest in our manufacturing facilities and equipment. We also invest in the future of our industry by regularly working with researchers in academia and private industry to develop new and innovative products and techniques. Sumiden Wire is also a proud supporter of the PCI Foundation and its efforts to educate and inspire the next generation of prestressed concrete designers and engineers. Sumiden Wire is also an active member of the Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute and the Post-Tensioning Institute.
