Stainless Steel Wire

Stainless steel wire is a thin, flexible strand or rod made from stainless steel. It can be produced through several processes, including cold drawing and cold rolling, which enhance its strength and surface finish. Stainless steel wires are known for their excellent tensile strength, durability, and resistance to corrosion and oxidation.

Shangang Steel is a custom supplier of wire made from stainless steel, carbon steel, and Galvanized Steel. We can supply round or flat stainless steel wire in a variety of finishes and dimensions, Shangang Steel also has the capability to provide value added services such as cutting, bending, beveling and get in touch with us today to get a quote on your next project!

Stainless steel wire can be made as round or flat ribbon and finished in a variety of tempers. Common stainless steel wires with good corrosion resistance and high cost performance are 304 and 316 stainless steel wires. Some common stainless steel wire applications include tie wire, pins, lashing, forming wire, filters, gaskets, elevators, safety wire, shaped and flat wire, conveyors, jewelry, springs, brush welding, electrical, wire line, craft wire, and more!

Wire Gauge

  • The standard of stainless steel wire has the following standards according to different stainless steel products:
  • Ordinary low carbon steel hot rolled wire rod GB701-65;
  • Ordinary low carbon steel non-twist controlled cold and hot rolled wire rod ZBH4403-88;
  • High quality carbon steel wire rod GB4354-84;
  • High-quality carbon steel non-twist-controlled cold and hot-rolled stainless steel wire ZBH44002-88;
  • Rope wire rod YB349-64.

In addition, there are domestic stainless steel rods 301, 304, 321, 316, 316L, 410, 416, 420, 430, and other types, including grades that meet ASTM, DIN, and EN standards, and those that apply international standards. Titanium, molybdenum, nickel, tungsten, chromium, and other high-temperature alloys are stainless steel wire.

Common Specifications

  • Stainless steel cord code S, soft [commonly known as hydrogen stripping] surface is bright, soft, non-magnetic, anti-fatigue, large extension force, and other characteristics. 0.03-5.0mm 301, 302, 304, 304L, 316, 316L, 310, 310S, 321, etc.
  • Stainless steel lightly drawn wire code LD, lightly drawn, after heat treatment, the steel wire is drawn with a small reduction surface. The surface is bright, soft, anti-fatigue, and has the characteristics of certain extension force. 0.03-5.0mm 301, 302, 304, 304L, 316, 316L, 310, 310S, 321, etc.
  • Stainless steel cold drawn wire code WCD, cold drawn, smooth surface, good toughness, wear resistance 0.03-6.0mm 302, 304, 304L, 316, 316L, 310, 310S, 321, etc.
  • Stainless steel spring wire High hardness, strong elasticity, good wear resistance and compression resistance 0.15-5.0mm 302, 304H, 304L, 316, 316L, 310, 310S, 321, etc.

Different grades of stainless steel wire

  • 316 stainless steel wire: 316 stainless steel wire has better corrosion resistance than 304 stainless steel, and has good corrosion resistance in the production process of pulp and paper. And 316 stainless steel wire is also resistant to erosion by marine and aggressive industrial atmospheres. 316 stainless steel wire has good oxidation resistance. In the range of 800-1575 degrees, it is best not to use 316 stainless steel continuously, but when 316 stainless steel wire is used continuously outside this temperature range, the stainless steel has good heat resistance.
  • 304 stainless steel wire: It has good corrosion resistance, heat resistance, low temperature strength and mechanical properties, good hot workability such as stamping and bending, and no heat treatment hardening phenomenon. Uses: tableware, cabinets, boilers, auto parts, medical appliances, building materials, food industry
  • 201 stainless steel wire: It belongs to high manganese and low nickel stainless steel, with low nickel content and poor corrosion resistance.
