The Crazy Wire Company are long established as Europe’s preferred suppliers of top quality 304 grade SS wire stainless steel. We have enormous stock levels at all times, as we use this wire to weave our marine grade woven mesh products.

The 0.34mm (27AWG) 304 grade ss wire stainless steel offer remarkable durability and optimal performance, making them suitable for a wide variety of commercial and industrial applications. In particular, 304 grade stainless steel is known for its excellent corrosion resistance and exceptional welding characteristics. These are crucial in industries like construction, manufacturing, and even some artistic applications. Despite its thickness of 0.34mm, or 27 American Wire Gauge (AWG), it is rigorously designed to maintain a balance between rigidity and flexibility, making it robust but also versatile. The wire is 304 grade stainless steel. This exhibits commendable tensile strength and is inherently resistant to high temperatures, ensuring structural integrity even under extreme conditions.

There are a variety of applications for the wire. This includes but not limited to filtration processes, constructing robust protective screens, constructing fencing solutions, and creating specialised fabrications. The 304 grade is particularly valuable in the industry due to its durability, as it effectively resists oxidation and ensures a long lifespan. This offers an economical solution by minimising replacement and maintenance costs. 304 grade stainless steel is also food-safe and frequently used in the food and beverage industry. This ensures safety and hygiene during food preparation and processing. With its robustness, flexibility, and reliability, this product is a brilliant choice for projects that require both strength and corrosion resistance.

We provide a comprehensive range of sizes tailored to meet diverse needs. The wire diameters range from a delicate 0.08mm up to a more robust 0.87mm. These sizes correspond to American Wire Gauge (AWG) standards from 40AWG down to 20AWG. To assist with electrical applications, it’s noteworthy that our wire resistances vary from 252.17 Ωm at the finest size, decreasing to 1.2 Ωm as the wire diameter increases.

Specification of this product:

  • Diameter – 0.34mm (340 Micron – 27 AWG)
  • Ohms/ft – 7.85

These specifications not only testify to the wire’s adaptability but also its capacity to fulfill specific requirements in both craftsmanship and technology.

FAQs About This Wire

How Resistant Is 304 Grade SS Mesh To Wear And Tear?

This grade of stainless steel wire is particularly admired for its exceptional resistance to wear and tear, a property attributed to its intrinsic properties. As a result of being well-balanced in nickel and chromium alloys, 304 grade stainless steel exhibits remarkable resilience against corrosion. This maintains its structural and aesthetic integrity even under continual use and exposure to different chemicals. Whether used in abrasive environments, such as filter systems, or in protective applications where it may be exposed to harsh weather conditions, this wire remains durable, resisting pitting, and remaining steadfast. Additionally, its ability to withstand substantial physical forces and maintain its original form and stability, even under pressure and in high-traffic environments, makes it a suitable material for applications requiring wear-resistant and robust materials. Because of its durability and consistent performance, 304 grade stainless wire is an ideal choice for scenarios requiring a combination of longevity and durability.

Can 304 Grade SS Mesh Be Repaired If Damaged?

Yes, 304 grade ss wire can often be repaired if damaged. This is thanks to its notable weldability and flexibility, which are inherent to its metallurgical composition. When the wire incurs damage, such as a tear or breakage, welding can typically be employed as a viable repair method. The 304 grade ss is known for its exceptional welding characteristics. This enables effective joining of the broken or damaged sections. Welding repairs can be accomplished using compatible stainless steel welding wires and electrodes. This ensures that the repaired section regains its strength and continues to exhibit the corrosion resistance that 304 grade is known for.

For smaller damages or in scenarios where welding might not be applicable, manual weaving or intertwining of a new wire might be considered to restore its integrity. It’s crucial, however, to ensure that the repair work is executed meticulously. This is to maintain the uniformity and stability of the wire . Keep in mind the specific application and associated load-bearing requirements. Thus, while 304 grade ss wire does provide feasible options for repair, professional assessment and technique are paramount to ensuring the longevity and functionality of the repaired wire in its subsequent usage.

Is 304 Grade SS Wire Mesh Compatible With Other Metals?

304 grade ss wire demonstrates compatibility with various metals, though certain considerations should be maintained to optimise its performance and longevity when integrated with different metallic components. Stainless steel, especially the 304 grade, is known for its resistance to corrosion and oxidisation. This can be particularly beneficial in applications where it is paired with other metals. However, it’s vital to be mindful of galvanic corrosion, a phenomenon that can occur when dissimilar metals are in electrical contact in a corrosive environment. The potential for galvanic corrosion is influenced by the electrochemical properties of the metals involved. For instance, aluminum, carbon steel, and zinc have different electrochemical potentials compared to 304 stainless steel. It could be susceptible to corrosion if not properly isolated or if used in an inappropriate environment.

To mitigate risks and ensure the longevity of the application, appropriate design considerations, such as the use of isolation materials or coatings, can be employed. Understanding the specific application, environment, and compatibility of metals can ensure that the 304 grade ss wire not only maintains its integrity but also does not inadvertently accelerate the corrosion of the metals it is paired with. Consequently, while compatibility is feasible, it must be approached with astute engineering and metallurgical insight.
