Plastic coated double loop rebar ties have a myriad of use.
More commonly, it is a used for binding and sealing.
Gunny sacks are made mostly of burlap and they used the plastic coated double loop rebar ties to bind the gunny sacks when they are shipped. They also use the plastic coated double loop rebar ties in weavin bags and seal sacks. The plastic coating is used to protect the product from being injured by the metal. Although there are many uses for plastic coated double loop rebar ties, you can see it used in craft stores, and in flower shops. The original need for rebar ties was to keep rebar together so it didn’t slip when the concrete was poured. This was an important use, however, over the years, the metal has become finer, and people have found many uses for something that was once only used in construction. Over the years, I’m sure there will be new uses for it, and it will all be because of the ingenuity of people to use what they have at hand. My father has been using stainless wire tires and barbed wire around the farm, for as long as I can remember. When I asked him who taught him to use this often recycled material, he said he learned it all from his dad. I’m glad dad is teaching all this stuff to me now. Someday, I want to own a farm, and I’ll be baling hay and making fences to keep the cows and horses in. It will be hard work, but it is worth it.
