Cold Heading Wire

CWI Cold Heading material is used extensively in the manufacturing of fastening systems such as but not limited to rivets, fasteners, pins, screws, bolts and washers. Central Wire draws material for cold heading applications from 0.040 inches to 1.000 inches (1.02 mm to 25.4 mm). We can offer 100% DFARS as required. The broad range of coatings and lubricants, coupled with superior metallurgical consistency, ensure peak performance under demanding conditions of heat and pressure. Central Wire’s molybdenum disulfide coating decreases the coefficient of friction as heading and extrusion forces increase. In effect, the harder you work, the harder it works for you. The copper-moly coating has a shiny black appearance, is securely bonded to the wire surface, and formulated specifically for the most difficult cold and warm-formed parts. For less complex applications, CWI’s Techcote™ wire is unsurpassed for consistency.
