STAINLESS STEEL 316 / 1.4401

General Description

ELEKTRISOLA steel wire is suitable for several industrial applications. We also offer enamelled stainless steel wire in a wide variety of colors. Enamelled stainless steel wire offers not only electrical insulation, but also a less aggressive surface than bare stainless steel.  Type 316 contains 2% molybdenum, giving increased chemical, corrosion, and oxidation resistance in comparison to the T304 alloy.

The stainless steel type 300 and 400 series are available as a bare wire or enamelled with any of our insulations. All stainless steel wire is produced to customer specific requirements or to ASTM standards. Wire sizes are available down to 50 AWG (0.025mm).
