Hardwire tapes are constructed from the 3X2 cord type and is available in standard brass or galvanized. These tapes are 12” wide (12” of steel fiber, 12 ½” grid) and are sold in 50’, 500’ and 2000’ rolls. Fiber density is measured by the number of steel cords per inch. All Hardwire tapes come in low, medium, and high densities.

 

Low Density Tape(4 WPI) These tapes allow for higher viscosity resins to be used including cementitious mixtures and thermoset putties. These tapes are also good where light reinforcement, tear resistance or load spreading behavior is needed. You can also use them for building laminate thickness, adding tear resistance to SMC, or as stay in place distribution media. When utilized with PSA adhesives they can be used as the reinforcement component for self leveling floor repair systems as well.

Medium Density Tape(12 WPI) These tapes will add additional reinforcement and still offer exceptional wet through. We have found that 12 wires/inch tapes are excellent when using thin set mortars and polymer concretes to ensure adequate wet-through. Medium density products also work great as stay in place distribution media.

High Density Tapes (18 - 20 WPI) These tapes are used where maximum stiffness is required and you want to gain the maximum advantages from the Hardwire fibers. These cords are the stiffest to work with and are designed to give outstanding compression values via cord geometry that allows the individual wire filaments to work together in a unprecedented way by allowing the cord to be flexible for processing, yet behave like very large diameter steel rods in compression once molded. The high density tapes still wet through well but lower viscosity resins are preferred.

 

The Cord
The 3x2 Hardwire® is a high carbon steel cord with a micro-fine brass or galvanized coating. The 3X2 cord is made by twisting 5 individual wire filaments together - 3 straight filaments wrapped by 2 filaments at a high twist angle. The result is an easy to handle cord that combines great engineering values with excellent economics. If your application is tension dominated choose the 3x2.
