Cold Heading Wire
We analyse our cold heading wire in house, giving us complete control over quality. Seamlessly combining ductility and formability with robust strength, cold heading wire has literally thousands of applications across the spectrum of industry. The wire boasts a blend of qualities that makes it ideal for creating fixings and fasteners such as screws, pins, rivets, tie rods, bolts and studs: these qualities include high formability, good surface finishes, low levels of magnetism and excellent resistance to damaging corrosion.
Cold heading wire from BS Stainless is of consistently-high quality, resulting in extended die life and increased machinability. We can supply the wire with a range of coatings including soap, copper metallic and a number of others to customer specification. Several different grades are also available: the most common is 302HQ, a specialised grade which incorporates 3% copper to reduce cold work hardening rates. 302HQ stainless steel is the industry standard for crafting light machine screws and self-tapping screws.
Stainless steel is an ideal metal to be formed and shaped due to its superlative ductility, which allows its shape to be changed without breaking due to kinetic stress. We are able to precisely
control both the material and mechanical qualities of our stainless steel wire, allowing us to produce premium the optimal wire for any given application with reliably consistent quality.
Forming wire has many different construction applications from the manufacture of wall ties to stainless steel mesh. Its superior qualities have also seen it used for an array of artistic projects: award winning artists Robin Wight and Candice Bees have both used our stainless steel wire to create stunning sculptures.
