Broom wire is high-tensile strength steel wire specifically used in the construction of wire brushes for street sweepers and other industrial broom applications.
Because of the amount of stress and wear these brushes endure, the steel used in the wires must be flexible, durable and resistant to corrosion. For that reason, broom wire is typically constructed of galvanized or PVC coated steel, usually with a high carbon content to give it strength. Depending on the brush construction, broom wire may be oil-tempered, oil-coated or patented. A variety of diameter sizes and tensile strengths are available.
