spiral wire for lead seals
Explanation:
Hi again Sarah,
This is a type of spiral wire threaded through a lead seal of the type used to seal trucks and containers.
It's a relatively common product; the spiral in the wire allows the lead seal, when compresses, to grip the wire. The seal or wire must be cut to open the container. Commonly used by customs, security etc

zinc coated spiral thread for lead seals


Explanation:
Hello Sarah
Just guessing really. The people at the website below (Italian) call it "spiral thread", but I have doubts about the authenticity of this term, even though it gives plenty of hits.
Regards
Derek
