316L Stainless Steel Ribbon Wire
The 316L stainless steel ribbon wire, with dimensions of 1mm x 0.1mm, is a versatile and robust product made from marine-grade stainless steel. Corrosion resistant and ideal for harsh environments, it is particularly useful in marine applications that are regularly exposed to saltwater. For tasks like rigging and securing components on boats, this feature extends its usefulness in the marine industry.
In the medical field, its biocompatibility makes it a safe material for surgical instruments and implants, since it resists body fluids and does not react negatively with the body. Due to its ability to withstand environmental stresses such as humidity and temperature changes, it is widely used in the construction and architectural sectors for structural support and decorative purposes.
In addition to springs, fasteners, and mesh, this wire is used in the manufacturing of springs, fasteners, and mesh, where its strength and flexibility are essential. Similarly, this wire is regularly used for making jewelry that is durable and tarnish-resistant.
Specification of Wire:
- Diameter – 1mm x 0.1mm
- Ohms/ft – 7.50

FAQs About This Wire
Is 316L Stainless Steel Ribbon Wire Magnetic?
There is a general consensus that 316L stainless steel ribbon wire has a weak magnetic property or is nonmagnetic. As a result of its composition, which contains a high percentage of chromium, nickel, and molybdenum, it has this characteristic. As a result of its specific alloying elements, 316L stainless steel has an austenitic structure that makes it non-magnetic. The material can, however, become slightly magnetic when cold worked or when exposed to very low temperatures. The magnetic properties of 316L stainless steel ribbon wire are negligible in most practical applications, especially at normal temperatures.
Can 316L Stainless Steel Ribbon Wire Be Used In Saltwater Environments?
Yes, 316L stainless steel ribbon wire is highly suitable for use in saltwater environments. Its composition, which includes a significant amount of chromium, nickel, and molybdenum, gives it excellent corrosion resistance, particularly against chloride and saline solutions. This makes it ideal for marine applications where exposure to saltwater is a common challenge. The lower carbon content in 316L stainless steel also enhances its resistance to corrosion, making it a reliable choice for use in harsh, saltwater conditions.
Is 316L Stainless Steel Ribbon Wire Suitable For High-Temperature Applications?
316L stainless steel ribbon wire is suitable for high-temperature applications, but with some limitations. It can maintain its structural integrity and resist oxidation at elevated temperatures, which is a crucial feature in many industrial and manufacturing processes. However, its maximum temperature for continuous use is generally around 870°C (1600°F), and it can tolerate brief exposures up to 925°C (1700°F).
Beyond these temperatures, 316L stainless steel may start to experience changes in its microstructure, leading to a decrease in mechanical properties and corrosion resistance. Therefore, while it’s suitable for many high-temperature environments, it’s important to consider the specific requirements of your application and ensure they align with the capabilities of 316L stainless steel.
