Straightened Wire | Stainless Steel 316

316 stainless mandrel wire
Properties
Component Supply's stock of 316LVM is vacuum remelted stainless to produce a more uniform chemistry with minimal voids and contaminants. It is spring tempered, drawn, and straightened with a bright finish. The molybdenum addition distinguishes 316 from 304 and is added to aid in corrosion resistance to chlorides. It is strong and can be easily welded or soldered. 316 medical wire is supplied in lengths of 36" and 72" and is available in diameters from 0.005" to 0.0400" in 0.001” increments. Price breaks begin at 30 pieces. Material certificates are available for $10.
