304 Stainless Steel Wire
The Crazy Wire Company are long established as Europe’s preferred suppliers of top quality stainless steel 42 AWG SS316L wire. We have enormous stock levels at all times, as we use this wire to weave our marine grade woven mesh products.
Our delightful staff are experts in producing our spools of round wire on our 6 rapid action winding machines. All spools are produced to carry a little extra length to make up for any waste when handling the product.
We specialise in fulfilling high volumes of smaller wire spools to suit every requirement and budget. However our master spools weigh between 1kg and 15kgs, so please contact us if you require a larger quantity – email@example.com.
Because we produce our own spools we are able to offer a wide choice of AWG and lengths. We are also able to guarantee the best prices in Europe.
Specification of Wire:

Stainless Steel Wire
The AISI 316 stainless steel and the 316L stainless steel are both austenitic stainless steel grades containing molybdenum (Mo). Carbon content, weldability, corrosion resistance and mechanical properties are the main differences between 316 and 316L stainless steel. There is a maximum carbon content of 0.08% in SS316, while there is a maximum carbon content of 0.03% in SS316L.
We have a full range of SS316 wire available from immediate stock.
As stainless steel 316L has a lower carbon content than stainless steel 316, it makes welding of 316L stainless steel easier than welding stainless steel 316.
In applications requiring maximum corrosion resistance and annealing after welding, SS316L is an excellent choice.

SS316L Marine Grade Stainless Steel
The corrosion resistance of stainless steel is naturally high, however corrosion can still occur in harsh or aggressive environments, including salt water and marine environments. The resistance of stainless steel can be attributed to the formation of a protective coating of chromium oxide on its surface, protecting the base metal (and, most importantly, the iron present) from moisture exposure and preventing the formation of rust or iron oxide.
Due to the inclusion of molybdenum in their composition, 316 or 316L are the most commonly used stainless steel grades for marine applications. Stainless steels 316 and 304 contain molybdenum, however, it is the relatively high concentration (2.0 to 2.5%) present in these grades that prevent pitting and crevice corrosion caused by salt water. Consequently 316L is a higher cost metal than the equivalent 304 grade.
We have an unrivalled range of SS304 wire too if required.
