Multi-strand (MS) Wire rod is a finished product in a steel plant rolled from the billet of the MS wire rod mill. The steel for MS wire rods is produced by both the steelmaking processes namely the basic oxygen steelmaking, and the electric furnace steelmaking.
MS wiring is more flexible and less susceptible for cracking and metal fatigue than single-stranded conductors. The increased surface area of multi-stranded conductors decreases the amount of resistance encountered by the currents or signals passing through the wire.
MS (Mild Steel) pipes are used for plumbing, air conditioning, ventilation, heating and fire-fighting. They are used in many industries for various engineering application. They are used in many construction activities. As pipes are mild steel pipe tubes, they can easily be welded and framed indifferent shapes and sizes for tubing and pipelining purposes. These types are typically covered with different metals or paints or varnish. MS pipes are extremely stronger with low level of carbon. They are widely used for structural mechanical purposes, domestic application fencing and general engineering. Our superior quality MS pipes are in great demand in the sectors of agriculture, public health, housing, irrigation, engineering and oil and natural gas.
A G Universal Limited manufactures high quality MS pipes in India. The raw material for MS pipes is purchased from steel authority of India (SAIL) which is a public sector company. We manufacture MS pipes in different sizes, grades and specification as per national and international guidelines.
MS pipes differ from GI (Galvanized Iron) pipes. Both have similar look but they differ in terms of weight, composition, strength and durability as described below:
- GI pipes are of poor strength with low cost.
- They are weaker than stainless material.
- They do not provide protection against rusting for a longer provide whileMS pipes have rust-free protection.
- GI pipe is manufactured with ordinary steel applied in a poll of molten zinc while MS pipe is manufactured by mixing ordinary steel with chromium ion molten state.
The various specifications for MS pipes are:
- Size: 15NB – 900NB
- Width: 500 – 2500mm
- Length: 500 – 10,000mm
- Type: Seamless MS Steel pipe/Welded MS steel pipe.
Seamless Steel Pipe is formed by drawing the solid billet over a piercing rod to create the hollow shell without welding or seam while welded MS Steel pipes are basically tubular products, made with a weld either from plates, sheets, bands, coils or strips
Features of MS pipe

MS Wire Rod
MS wire rod is a hot rod mild steel product which is produced from a billet. It is a rod made using low carbon content having less than 22% of carbon in it. MS wire are used in all kinds of steel wires, wire nails and wire entanglements they are transported in the form of wound coils. There sizes range from 5.5 mm to 12 mm. They are manufactured through the cutting edge mill with the help of latest technology we ensure that all our products are of superior quality with dimensional accuracy and consistent properties.
