Now Available: Stainless Steel Wire

As part of our ever-expanding range of metal options, we have teamed up with our sister business The Crazy Wire Company to add a massive collection of raw stainless steel wire options.

Having supplied raw wire for many years, we have the knowledge and confidence to provide wire tailored to each application as well as to provide technical assistance. To keep it simple we are offering 1 spool size for each wire specification, but if you do need a specific weight or length then please contact us. We have 6 spooling machines in house, so many bespoke products is simple for us.

Here are a few quick points on why stainless steel wire is such a popular option…

What Is Stainless Steel Wire?

Stainless steel wire is a type of wire made from a combination of iron and at least 10.5% chromium. The chromium content in the wire gives it its corrosion-resistant properties, making it a popular choice for a wide range of applications, including construction, medical equipment, and kitchen utensils. Stainless steel wire is also known for its strength and durability. It can be formed into various shapes and sizes and is often used in wire meshes, cables, and wire ropes.

There are several reasons why stainless steel wire is so popular:

  1. Corrosion resistance: Stainless steel wire is made of a combination of iron and at least 10.5% chromium, which gives it excellent corrosion resistance properties. It can withstand exposure to a variety of environments, including water, chemicals, and acidic substances.
  2. Strength and durability: It is known for its strength and durability, making it suitable for use in a wide range of applications. It is often used in construction, medical equipment, and kitchen utensils, as well as in wire meshes, cables, and wire ropes.
  3. Non-magnetic properties: Some types of stainless steel wire are non-magnetic, making it suitable for use in applications where magnetic properties are not desired.
  4. Low maintenance: It’s easy to clean and maintain, and it does not require regular painting or other forms of protection.
  5. Low cost: Stainless steel wire is relatively low-cost, making it a cost-effective choice for many applications.
  6. Recyclable: Stainless steel is also 100% recyclable, which makes it environmentally friendly.

All these properties make stainless steel wire a versatile and cost-effective choice for a wide range of applications.

What Grades Are Available?

304, 316, 430 and 316L are all types of stainless steel wire that we currently stock in large quantities. They are often used in different applications due to their unique properties.

304 stainless steel wire is the most common type and is often used in a wide range of applications. It is known for its corrosion resistance, heat resistance, and strength. It is also non-magnetic and has a relatively low cost.

316 stainless steel wire is a higher grade version of 304. It has a higher nickel content which gives it better corrosion resistance in certain environments, particularly those with high levels of chloride. It also has higher strength and durability than 304.

316L stainless steel wire is similar to 316, but it has a lower carbon content. This makes it more resistant to intergranular corrosion, which can occur when the steel is welded or heated. It also has improved formability, making it a good choice for applications that require complex shapes and sizes.

All these types are widely used in various industrial and commercial settings. The choice between them will depend on the specific application, environmental factors and cost.

Besides fastenings and fixings, springs and clamping methods, our wire can be used for a wide range of applications. Other products made from this material include stainless steel wall ties, welded mesh, and exhaust brackets. In particular, stainless steel wall ties benefit from their anti-corrosive properties since they are constantly attacked by water.
