Pre-stressed concrete strand (PC strand) is a high-grade, low-relaxation, 7-strand steel cord used in the reinforcement and strengthening of pre-stressed concrete structures. Because it is used in critical applications, this strand consists of high-carbon steel with a high tensile strength, manufactured to the highest quality standards to ensure its durability. PC strand is available in several different thicknesses, ranging between .25 inches and .6 inches in diameter.
