Top 3 Types of Stainless Steel Wire

Representatives from BS Stainless will be at the WIRE 2018 expo and trade fair in Dusseldorf last week. It was great to have so many visitors drop by and meet us in Hall 14 at stand B59. We had hundreds if not thousands of visitors even if our stainless steel wolf did steal the limelight. As wire is most definitely the subject of the moment, here is some information on three types supplied by BS Stainless.

Spring Wire

We supply a large and ever-increasing selection of spring wire from stock. All of the many available choices are cold-drawn to precision tolerances in accordance with EN10270-3 specifications, offering truly consistent quality across the board. Every last metre of spring wire is guaranteed to provide a high tensile strength and elasticity, along with superb cast and helix charac­te­ristics. Highly resistant to fatigue, our spring wire is supplied with a standard soap coating to maximise efficiency when used in spring forming machines; if this coating is not required, the wire is supplied with a bright, aesthetically-attractive finish. For small diameters of wire, a nickel coating can be applied.
