Strong, machinable, versatile.

Stainless Steel Products manufactures Stainless Steel 1008 alloy in round wire, flat wire, cut to length for the performance you need for the most demanding uses.

Attributes

Stainless Steel 1008 alloy is one of the most popular steel alloys, and offers a long list of benefits when made into wire:

  • Excellent weldability
  • Ideal for parts that require moderate strength
  • Good matte surface finish
  • Excellent for machining
  • Excellent for cold-forming

Having the right blend

Galvanizing Options

Electro galvanizing:

Electro galvanizing (zinc electro plating) is corrosion resistant. The coating is smooth, uniform and has a bright finish ideal for applications where aesthetics is important. Electro galvanizing is economical. 

Hot Dip Galvanizing:

In hot dip galvanizing, after steel wire has been thoroughly cleaned, it is dipped into a molten zinc bath. This process applies a very heavy coat which is typically 5-10x thicker than electro galvanizing. Because this plating is thicker, it is more durable and lasts far longer in field applications than electro galvanizing. Hot dip galvanized wire is dull gray color in appearance. A typical application for hot dip galvanized wire is for use at construction sites. Please be advised due to the complex process required for hot dip galvanizing it is more expensive than electro galvanized wire.
