    Some of the measures have to be taken during the use of

    prestressing concrete steel:

    • Prestressing concrete steel is sensitive against intensive

    heat sources. Internal structure and mechanical features of

    steel may be changed if it is exposed to intensive heating.

    • Loading and discharging have to be made in minimum

    amounts and corrosion and pressure have to be avoided in

    order not to change mechanical features.

    • Coils have to be stowed over ground level and they have

    to be covered in a way that they allow a good air circulation

    in order to avoid condensation.


    Prestressing is to apply constant stress artificially to

    structural components before applying external loads.

    For the prestressing concrete wires and strands in

    various dimensions, types and resistances, which are

    produced exclusively, are used.

    Prestressing concrete steel elements are produced by

    taking stress from high carbon special wire rods with

    vanadium alloys after a distinct load and a regular

    patenting treatment.

    In prestressed concrete structures the prestressing

    applied initially is decreasing in time due to warping and

    creep of concrete and relaxation of prestressing steels.

    Therefore, the characteristics of the steel defined as steel

    relaxation under constant length or loss of stress is one

    of the important parameters taking into consideration in

    designing of prestressed concrete structures.

    Advantages of the products with lower relaxation:

    • More tensile and yield strenghts.

    • Super durability against fatigue and corrosion.

    • Consistent load elongation relation.

    • Super straightening feature.


    Our products are tested under the latest technology standards by our highly qualified and experienced experts to provide durability, elongation and relaxation features according to the parameters of international standards.


    Çelik Halat ve Tel Sanayi A.Ş. started

    producing PC Strand in 1986 as the first

    mover in Turkey. With new projects and

    investments; our company intends to extend

    its domestic market leadership to overseas.

    PC strand with 7 strands that are used in

    the areas such as bridge girder production,

    prefabricated construction elements,

    ground and mine anchorages, nuclear

    power stations, silo constructions, housing

    constructions are produced according to the

    ASTM, BS, EN, TSE ve JIS standards.

    Primary advantages provided by PC Strand:

    • Having high tensile strength.

    • Potential great prestressing in small edges.

    • Less need for anchorage and application
