The table below shows our:

Wire Material Properties Comparison Chart

E = Excellent G= Good M = Moderate P = Poor

  1. Tensile Strength - shown as a % of CS45, our most popular wire

  2. Corrosion - The ratings are based on published specs for respective metals

  3. Heat Resistance -The number indicates the highest temperature (degree Fahrenheit) this metal is rated for

  4. Anti-magnetic Property - The numbers are based on published specs for respective metals

  5. Weight is stated as a percent, using CS45 wire density as 100% and all others as a percent of CS45 density

  6. Cost - shown as a % of CS45, our most popular wire. The cost will vary by wire size, quantity of individual size and the spot market price for each metal. The information in this column only gives a rough comparison from one grade to another.

  7. Availability - Some wires are readily available in all sizes, others have long lead times and "Minimum Order" requirements
