Description

SS316L Ribbon Wire

This stainless steel ribbon wire, 0.4 x 0.1mm, made from SS316L marine grade stainless steel and spanning 200 metres, is highly versatile and durable. Due to its corrosion resistance, this material is ideal for use in marine and industrial environments. Due to its good thermal conductivity and high temperature resistance, the thin, flat design of the wire provides flexibility and strength, and thus makes it suitable for making springs, resistors, and heating elements. By using a device like this, connections in electronics are guaranteed to be stable and unaffected by environmental stresses. Non-reactive, the material can be used to manufacture medical equipment, as well as in the construction and automotive industries to bind, reinforce, or fabricate machinery. The wire’s length makes it versatile and long-term performing under challenging conditions. This is because it has an ample supply to satisfy various project requirements.

Specification of Wire:

  • Diameter – 1mm x 0.1mm
  • Ohms/ft – 7.5

We also offer this grade as round wire and flat wire too if required.

FAQs About This Wire

How Should I Clean SS316L Wire?

Ribbon wire made of SS316L needs to be cleaned gently, without abrasion, in order to maintain its integrity and avoid damage to its surface. You should begin by wiping the wire with a soft, lint-free cloth to remove any loose dirt or debris. Using a mild detergent diluted in warm water will help you clean more thoroughly. The cloth should be dipped in this solution and gently wiped over the wire.

Be careful not to use harsh chemicals or abrasive materials when cleaning stainless steel, as they can corrode or scratch it. It is recommended to use a soft-bristled brush when dealing with tough stains or residues, but ensure that you brush gently to avoid scratching the surface. Wipe the wire completely dry with a clean, dry cloth after cleaning it with clean water to remove any soap residue. As well as maintaining the ribbon wire’s corrosion resistance and longevity, regular cleaning enhances its appearance.

Can SS316L Ribbon Wire Be Soldered Or Welded Easily?

Soldering or welding SS316L ribbon wire can be accomplished, but it requires specific techniques and materials due to its stainless steel composition. SS316L stainless steel is known for its resistance to corrosion and high-temperature tolerance. These are great properties for longevity but can make soldering or welding a bit challenging.

For soldering, it’s important to use a flux that is specifically designed for stainless steel to ensure proper adhesion. A solder alloy compatible with stainless steel, typically containing silver, should be used. The surface of the wire should be clean and free of any oxides or contaminants for the solder to adhere properly.

Welding SS316L ribbon wire requires appropriate welding techniques suitable for thin and delicate materials. TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) welding is often recommended for stainless steel due to its precision and control. The use of a filler material that matches the SS316L composition is crucial to maintain the corrosion resistance and strength of the weld area. Preheating the wire is generally not necessary due to its thinness, but careful heat control is essential to prevent warping or burning through the material.

In both soldering and welding, it’s important to work in a well-ventilated area and take necessary safety precautions. Professional guidance or services are recommended if you’re not experienced with soldering or welding stainless steel, to ensure the integrity and quality of the wire are maintained.

What Is The Best Method To Join Ribbon Wire?

  1. Soldering: For electronic or delicate applications where minimal heat is desired, soldering can be effective. Use a flux designed for stainless steel and a suitable solder alloy, typically containing silver. Ensure the wire is clean and oxide-free for the best adhesion.
  2. Welding: For stronger joins, welding is the preferred method. TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) welding is often recommended for stainless steel due to its precision. Use a filler material that matches the SS316L composition to maintain corrosion resistance. Controlling heat is crucial to avoid warping or damaging the wire.
  3. Crimping: For mechanical connections where soldering or welding is not feasible, crimping can be a suitable alternative. Use stainless steel crimps that match the wire composition and a proper crimping tool to ensure a secure and durable connection.
  4. Mechanical Fastening: This includes methods like screws, bolts, or rivets. While not as seamless as welding or soldering, it’s a practical solution for certain constructions, especially where disassembly might be required.
  5. Adhesive Bonding: Certain high-grade, stainless-steel-compatible adhesives can be used for applications where heat-based joining is impractical. However, this method generally offers less strength compared to welding or soldering.
