The Crazy Wire Company are long established as Europe’s preferred suppliers of top quality SS317L wire. We have enormous stock levels at all times, as we use this wire to weave our marine grade woven mesh products.
The SS317L wire, made from high-grade stainless steel with a thickness of 0.6mm (23 AWG), offers a versatile solution for a range of applications across various industries. With its exceptional quality and reliability, this product is manufactured from corrosion-resistant stainless steel SS317L. Due to its 0.6mm diameter, the wire strikes a perfect balance between flexibility and strength, making it the perfect choice for precision and resilience projects. Corrosion and oxidation resistance at high temperatures make it suitable for harsh environments, ensuring long-term durability and performance.
In the manufacturing of medical devices, SS317L wire is commonly used because of its sterility and non-reactive properties. Furthermore, it is widely used in the automotive industry for components that require high strength and resistance to wear. The construction industry appreciates the structural integrity of this wire, which is often used for reinforcing materials. As a result of its high tensile strength and durability, this wire is a favorite in the aerospace industry for critical applications requiring safety and reliability. Furthermore, its chemical resistance makes it ideal for use in chemical processing, where it can handle exposure to a variety of harsh chemicals.

FAQs About This Wire
Can SS317L Wire Withstand Chemical Exposure?
Yes, SS317L wire is highly capable of withstanding chemical exposure. It is made with SS317L grade stainless steel, a grade of stainless steel that is known for its excellent corrosion resistance, especially under harsh chemical conditions. Chromium, nickel, and molybdenum contribute to the corrosion resistance of SS317L by preventing pitting and corrosion by most chemicals, solvents, and acids. As a result, it is the perfect choice for use in chemical processing industries, where aggressive substances are often encountered. When used in manufacturing processes involving strong acids or in environments where chemical cleanliness is fundamental, SS317L wire maintains its integrity and performance, ensuring durability and reliability.
What Are Common Mistakes To Avoid When Using SS317L Wire?
- Inadequate Handling and Storage: SS317L wire should be handled with care to avoid mechanical damage. It should be stored in a clean, dry environment to prevent any corrosion or surface contamination.
- Improper Cutting and Shaping: Using inappropriate tools for cutting or bending the wire can damage its structure. Always use suitable tools and techniques specific to stainless steel.
- Overlooking Environmental Factors: While SS317L is corrosion-resistant, it’s still important to consider the specific environmental conditions it will be exposed to, such as extreme temperatures or particularly corrosive chemicals.
- Neglecting Cleanliness: Stainless steel wires should be kept clean, as surface contaminants can lead to localised corrosion. Ensure the wire is free from dirt, grease, and other materials that can compromise its integrity.
- Incorrect Welding Practices: If welding SS317L wire, use appropriate welding methods and filler materials. Poor welding techniques can lead to issues like thermal stress and corrosion.
- Ignoring Manufacturer’s Recommendations: Always follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for use, handling, and storage. These recommendations are based on thorough testing and understanding of the material’s properties.
- Overloading the Wire: Be mindful of the tensile strength limits of the wire. Exceeding these limits can cause deformation or breakage.
- Using in Incompatible Applications: Ensure that SS317L wire is suitable for the intended application, particularly in terms of chemical compatibility and mechanical requirements.
- Lack of Regular Inspections: Regularly inspect the wire for signs of wear, corrosion, or damage, especially in critical applications.
- Not Consulting with Experts: In case of uncertainty about its use or application, it’s always better to consult with a metallurgical expert or the wire manufacturer.
