Q 1: Single wire must be cheaper than the other two?

To some extents, yes, it is a little bit cheaper. Taking an example, for packing 100 meters length per reel, less material used for single wire ones’ production. Besides, weaving is not that complicated. They shall be cheaper. But is that all? No! The fact is that when our customer place the order, they ask for the unit of net weight same as the other two. It means that a single reel with single wire can cover more length. Do more with less! Smart!


Q2: Reverse twist mush be more expensive than traditional twist?

For traditional twist, wire gauge shall be no thinner than BWG 15, while reverse twist wire diameter ranges from BWG12-18. Wire diameter is the key points.
