Annealing, in a metallurgy and materials science, is a heat treatment wherein a material is altered, causing changes in its properties such as hardness and ductility. It is a process that produces conditions by heating to above the critical temperature, maintaining a suitable temperature, and then cooling. Annealing is used to produce ductility, soften material, relieve internal stress, refine the structure by making it homogeneous and improve cold working properties.

Jade Sterling Steel is a full service distributor of both wire rod and bar products in a variety of conditions including annealed. Some of the annealed wire rod products we supply include spheroidized annealed at finished size (SAFS), spheroidized annealed in process (SAIP), spheroidized annealed rod (SAR) and drawn from annealed rod (DAR) .We can also have full length bars annealed for specific requirements and applications.

Jade Sterling Steel can have bars normalized. Normalization is an annealing process in which a metal is cooled in air after heating in order to relieve stress. With long-standing relationships and priority pricing and delivery from various processors, we can offer some of the most competitive prices on annealed products. Most of the wire rod we supply in the annealed condition consists of alloy grades, however, we have the capacity to supply many other grades in this condition as well. We supply annealed wire rod in coil form weighing from 2,000 – 4,000 pounds. This rod may be packaged into a tightly banded coil, or on a carrier if desired. We can also have full length bars annealed in a full range of diameters and grades.

Whether you’re in need of a single 4,000-pound coil or bundle, a full truckload or even a rail car of annealed product, let Jade Sterling Steel go to work filling your requirements.
