Bright basic wire, also referred to as BBW, is drawn from hot rolled rod. The rod is cold drawn through a die in order to produce a product with close dimensional tolerances, improved mechanical properties and a bright finish. Shotblasting or pickling is often completed prior to drawing in order to remove surface scale. Bright basic wire may be produced in industrial, cold finishing, high carbon and cold heading qualities. BBW may be used in a variety of applications including fasteners, components, baskets and displays. End products may include nails, rivets, u-bolts, fan guards and carts.
