The Crazy Wire Company are long established as Europe’s preferred suppliers of top quality 0.8mm SS316L wire. We have enormous stock levels at all times, as we use this wire to weave our marine grade woven mesh products.

The 0.8mm 316L Medical/Marine Grade Stainless Steel Round Wire is a versatile and durable product designed to meet the needs of various industries. It is made of high-quality 316L stainless steel, known for its exceptional resistance to corrosion and tarnishing, and measures 0.8mm in diameter (equal to 20 AWG). In harsh environments, like marine and coastal settings, saltwater and humidity pose common challenges, which makes it an ideal choice. The medical-grade quality of this material makes it particularly ideal for use in surgical tools and implants, due to its biocompatibility and ability to withstand sterilisation.

A 254g spool provides a substantial amount of wire, which can be used for a wide variety of projects for a long time to come. The material’s strength and durability make it a good choice for structural applications, including fences, balustradings, and architectural elements. Further, this wire is often used in jewelry making and crafting, offering artisans a sturdy yet malleable material they can work with to create intricate designs.

Specification of this product:

  • Diameter – 0.8mm (800 Micron – 20 AWG)
  • Spool Size – 254g (Approx. 50 Metres)

We also offer the SS316L grade as flat wire too if required.

FAQs About This Wire

How Does SS316L 0.8mm Wire Perform In Cold Environments?

It is widely recognised that stainless steel 316L grade wires, such as SS316L 0.8mm wire, perform exceptionally well in environments with cold temperatures. It is known for its excellent cryogenic properties, which mean it retains strength and toughness even at very low temperatures. Compared to some other materials, the wire’s 0.8mm thickness contributes to its flexibility and resilience, making it less likely to crack in cold conditions.

Also, 316L stainless steel contains molybdenum, which enhances its corrosion resistance in harsh environments, particularly cold and harsh environments. SS316L 0.8mm wire is therefore a reliable choice for applications in refrigerated settings, outdoor winter conditions, and even cryogenic processes.

Is Stainless Steel 316L 0.8mm Stainless Steel Wire Magnetic?

Stainless Steel 316L, including the 0.8mm wire variant, is generally considered to be non-magnetic or very weakly magnetic. This is due to its specific composition, which includes a higher nickel content and the addition of molybdenum. The austenitic structure of 316L stainless steel, which is a result of its high chromium and nickel content, primarily contributes to its non-magnetic properties.

However, it’s important to note that 316L stainless steel can exhibit some magnetic response under certain conditions. This is usually due to the cold working processes, such as bending, forming, or stretching, which can alter the microstructure of the steel and induce some degree of magnetism. Even then, the magnetic properties are usually quite weak compared to ferromagnetic materials.

In practical terms, for most applications, the 0.8mm 316L stainless steel wire can be considered effectively non-magnetic, making it suitable for use in environments where magnetic interference needs to be minimised.
