The best prestressing cables and wires in the world
The prestressing cables serve for prestressed concrete which is a kind of reinforced concrete in which the reinforcement means are used to create an artificial load on the element, and this artificial load opposes the element's service loads and in fact offsets part of them. Prestressed concrete beams are generally used for building bridges or coverings bearing great loads over large spans.

The concrete's artificial load is called tension, and is usually obtained by adding tensile stresses to the reinforcement of the element, before applying the service loads. If the prestressing is before casting of the structural element it is called "pre-tensioned", if it is performed after building of the element, it is called "post-tensioned".
