Stainless Steel Wire

Stainless Steel Wire

We have already witnessed the widespread use of steel wires in our lives these wires are differentiated according to their applications in various fields. Steel wire manufacturing involves the galvanisation of steel. Further, this galvanised steel is drawn into wires of varying lengths for various industrial and general applications. Bansal Wires is a leading stainless steel manufacturer in the U.S.A. Our units manufacture a diverse range of steel wires with thicknesses ranging from very thin to normal thickness wires according to the use in the industry. The range varies from 0.04MM to 10.00 MM thickness.

Types of steel wires:

There are many types of Stainless Steel Wire available in market, but the main category involves four major types.

  1. Austenitic Stainless Steel –  It is the most commonly used Stainless Steel alloy.  It contains higher level of chromium content as compared to all other alloys used for designing Stainless Steel. This composition of chromium gives it the highest resistance to corrosion. The other most important characteristic of austenitic Stainless Steel alloys is that it tends to be non-magnetic, but they may convert into magnetic elements after cold workings. are non-magnetic and can maintain their strength at high temperatures
  2. Ferritic Stainless Steel –   This is another popular type of Stainless Steel wire mesh manufactured which is being popularly used in industries after austenitic alloys. This is the highly magnetic alloy of Stainless Steel and it can easily be hardened with cold working. They are very inexpensive alloys because a lesser amount of nickel content is used for designing it.
  3. Duplex Stainless steel –  This kind of stainless steel has 50% properties of austenitic and 50% ferritic. It is a hybrid form of steel but stronger than either of its alloys of origin. This strength gives duplex stainless steel improved corrosion and cracking resistance. It has high ferritic content hence magnetic in nature. Duplex stainless steels can be welded and are well suited for saltwater corrosive conditions, making them useful for the underwater oil industry.
  4. Martensitic Stainless Steel –  It is not a frequent Stainless Steel alloy in use as it has very low corrosion resistance as compared to other forms of alloys. However, the hardness of the alloy is optimal and very higher indeed. This makes it the most optimal choice for applications that require extra higher tensile strength as well as impact resistance. To make this steel corrosion-resistant,  you can apply extra protective polymer coating hence making it extra stronger and corrosion-resistant.

Stainless steel wires have multiple applications and are widely used in the power industry, construction, various engineering, and petrochemical and food industries. These are also used as a welding material for the live conductors of cables, ropes and springs.

For other domestic and light mechanical jobs, these wires are used in making ropes, cables, springs and various other parts for machinery.  Many times, Stainless steel wires are used in the manufacture of furniture, architecture, etc.

Stainless steel wires are also used in making the stable and durable structure of yachts and boats, as it withstands corrosion and mechanical stress, since no other wires cannot resist. Bansal wires are a leading stainless steel wires manufacturer in U.S and deal in every kind of wire
