Count on ISW for Cold Heading Quality Wire- Fast.

Cold heading quality (CHQ) wire is a type of steel wire that is specifically designed for cold heading applications. Cold heading is a manufacturing process that uses compressive force to shape wire into a variety of products, such as bolts, nuts, screws, and rivets. CHQ wire is made from high-quality steel that has been carefully processed to ensure that it has the necessary strength, ductility, and machinability for cold heading.

CHQ wire is a versatile and durable material that is used in a variety of cold heading applications. It is known for its high tensile strength, ductility, and machinability. CHQ wire is available in a variety of sizes and finishes, and it can be either bare or coated with a protective layer. The type of CHQ wire that is selected will depend on the specific application. For example, CHQ wire that is used to make bolts will need to have a higher tensile strength than CHQ wire that is used to make nails. Not sure what type of CHQ wire you need for your application?
