Materials

Standard Wire

  • Bright Basic Steel
    Our Bright Basic Wire is a low carbon, mild steel wire with a semi-bright finish. Its relatively high strength, durability and low cost make it a great choice for a wide variety of applications. Our Bright Basic Wire conforms to ASTM A82 and can be painted almost any custom color. It is available in a wide variety of wire gauges and weave sizes.
  • Nickel-Plated Steel
    Nickel-Plated Steel Wire is our standard mild steel wire coated with a thin layer of electrolytic nickel. The coating not only offers a brilliant chrome finish but also helps in resisting corrosion. Typically, Nickel-Plated Wire is used on interior applications where a high-gloss mirrored finish is desired. It is available in a wide variety of wire gauges and weave sizes.
  • Silver Tin-Plated Steel
    Silver Tin-Plated Steel Wire is our standard mild steel wire with a shiny, brilliant silver tin-plated surface. The tin coating is Grade A and conforms to ASTM B339-00. Its relatively low cost and attractive finish make it a great choice for interior draperies and the like. It is available in a wide variety of wire gauges and weave sizes.
  • Galvanized Steel
    Galvanized Steel Wire is mild steel wire with a layer of zinc applied during the wire drawing process. The zinc coating adds a protective corrosion resistant layer to the steel conforming to ASTM A641. Galvanized wire retains all of the mild steel’s mechanical properties with a high resistance to atmospheric oxidization. The wire is ash grey colored and can form a white powder when wet. Galvanized wire works best for industrial applications, where relatively high strength and corrosion resistance is required. It is available in a wide variety of wire gauges and weave sizes.
  • Aluminized Steel
    Aluminized Steel Wire is a corrosive-resistant steel material used primarily for exterior fencing applications. It is a cheaper, less attractive alternative to stainless steel with a slightly duller finish. Our Aluminized Wire conforms to ASTM A809-08 and is only available in specific wire gauges and weave sizes.
  • Stainless Steel Type 304
    Stainless Steel Type 304 is the most widely used variety stainless steel. It is a slightly magnetic, highly corrosive-resistant material with a lustrous metallic finish. Its consistent wire surface quality, relatively high strength and great corrosion resistance make it attractive for many applications. The wire can be drawn bare or with a black oxide surface. Stainless Steel Type 304 conforms to ASTM A313 and is available in a wide variety of wire gauges and weave sizes.
  • Stainless Steel Type 316
    Stainless Steel Type 316 exhibits the highest level of corrosion resistance when compared to all other stainless steel types. It has a slightly higher strength than Type 304 and can handle higher temperatures. In most cases Type 316 is used for all exterior applications where relatively high strengths and high resistance to oxidation or eroding is required. The wire can be drawn bare or with a black oxide surface. In its bare state, Type 316 has a lustrous metallic finish. Additionally, the wire can be chemically treated to exhibit a special Ultra Black satin finish. This finish is metallically bonded to the stainless wire and does not deteriorate. Stainless Steel Type 316 conforms to ASTM A313 and is available in a wide variety of wire guages and weave sizes.
  • Copper Clad Steel
    Copper Clad Steel Wire is our mild steel wire with pure copper plating bonded to the wire’s surface. The Copper Clad Wire exhibits a brilliant red polished finish when first plated. However, if left bare and untreated the wire’s appearance will slowly change to brownish hues and ultimately a grey/green patina. By applying a thin layer of clear lacquer the bright salmon color can be maintained if desired. Our Copper Clad wire conforms to ASTM B-227 and has both interior and exterior applications. It is available in a wide variety of wire gauges and weave sizes.
  • Metalobind Glavanized Steel
    Metalobind Galvanized Steel Wire offers superior corrosion resistance due to a patented duplex layer of galvanized zinc plating and nylon coating. The flexible outer covering comes in a wide variety of semi-translucent colors, including “glow-in-the-dark” and florescent. The semi-opaque coating atop the galvanized wire creates a partial metallic appearance. The nylon coating also adds abrasion resistance, waterproofing and smoothness to the wire. The covering is available in several material types including an antimicrobial polymer and the patented Ecobind material. Ecobind is derived from plant-based resources, is 100% compostable and is rated carbon dioxide neutral. This environmentally-friendly, non-toxic coating is ideal for “green” applications. Metalobind wire is available in a wide variety of wire gauges and weave sizes. Nylon coated galvanized steel is available in any color using the Pantone Color System.
  • Nylobind Glavanized Steel
    Nylobind Galvanized Steel Wire offers superior corrosion resistance due to a patented duplex layer of galvanized zinc plating and nylon coating. The flexible outer covering comes in a wide variety of 100% opaque colors, including florescent. The colored coating not only adds great aesthetic appeal but also enhances abrasion resistance, waterproofing and wire smoothness. The plastic coating is available in several material types including an antimicrobial polymer and patented Ecobind material. Ecobind is derived from plant-based resources, is 100% compostable and is rated carbon dioxide neutral. This environmentally-friendly, non-toxic coating is ideal for “green” applications. Nylobind wire is available in a wide variety of wire gauges and weave sizes. Nylon coated galvanized steel is available in any color using the Pantone Color System.
  • Additional Wire Options
  • Bright Basic Annealed Steel
    Bright Basic Annealed Steel Wire is a softened version of our typical Bright Basic Steel Wire. The annealing, or stress relieving process, reduces the wire hardness making it more ductile. The wire has a smooth bright finish with very low memory ideal for high speed forming. It is available in specific wire gauges and weave sizes.
  • High Tensile Strength Steel
    Our High Tensile Strength Steel Wire (Music Wire) is a high carbon, cold drawn wire conforming to ASTM A228. Its tensile strength ranges from 315-345ksi and comes bare, zinc plated or phosphate coated. The wire is primarily used in applications requiring high tensile/shear strength, high wear resistance and/or high fatigue strength. It can be painted almost any custom color, but due to its extreme hardness, can unfortunately only be woven in certain wire gauges and weave sizes.
  • Nylobind Steel
    Nylobind Steel Wire is our mild steel wire layered with a smooth polymer coating. The flexible outer covering comes in a wide variety of 100% opaque colors, including florescent. The colored coating not only adds great aesthetic appeal but also significantly increases the wire’s abrasion resistance, waterproofing and smoothness. The plastic coating is available in several material types, including an antimicrobial polymer and the patented Ecobind material. Ecobind is derived from plant-based resources, is 100% compostable and is rated carbon dioxide neutral. This environmentally-friendly, non-toxic coating is ideal for “green” applications. Nylobind wire is available in a wide variety of wire gauges and weave sizes. Nylon coated galvanized steel is available in any color using the Pantone Color System.
  • Stainless STeel Type 204-Cu
    Stainless Steel Type 204-Cu wire is a relatively low-cost stainless steel material that exhibits excellent corrosion resistance as well as good formability. With the addition of copper and the depletion of nickel, Type 204 is considerable cheaper and slightly more ductile compared to other stainless steels. Type 204-Cu is a non-magnetic, highly corrosive resistant material with a lustrous metallic finish. It can be produced bare or with a black oxide surface. Its mechanical and aesthetic properties make it appropriate for a wide variety of wire gauges and weave sizes.
  • Titanium
    Our Titanium Wire is used primarily in the chemical industry where extreme light weight, high corrosive resistance and low to moderate strength are required. Its available in several different grades all governed by ASTM B863. In its natural state, Titanium Wire is a dark silver color. Its specific physical and chemical properties make titanium a very particular material type and thus can only be woven using certain wire gauges and in a few weave sizes.
