Stainless Steel Wire — Flawless Formability
An extremely versatile component, stainless steel wire comes in many forms and suits thousands of applications from cold-heading and tying to welding and creating quality springs. As the largest supplier of stainless steel wire in the UK, we are able to quickly provide all types of this essential product, including forming wire.
Often, wire requires shaping and forming to create the desired component with a professional level of accuracy. Stainless steel exhibits exceptional ductility – the ability to be deformed without breakage when kinetic stress is applied. The material and mechanical properties of the metal can be controlled precisely, producing the perfect wire for any application with consistent, unrivalled quality.
The uses for stainless steel wire are many and include a wide selection of fastenings and fixings, springs and clamping methods. The material is regularly used in the manufacture of stainless steel wall ties, welded mesh and exhaust brackets.
Even the very smallest and most complex components can be produced using our stainless steel forming wire, thanks to state-of-the-art Computer Numerical Control (CNC) systems. This is helping to evolve technology and ideas across industry, from aerospace and art to catering and medicine.
When choosing our stainless steel forming wire, there are many options to ensure that you get exactly the right material for the job at hand. These options include annealed/drawn wire, EPQ (Electro Polishing Quality) and lubrications options from metallic and oil to soap coatings. A full range of metal grades is available and our skilled technical team are always available to help you select the right one.
