Tensile Strength and Other Technical Considerations for Wire

May 23, 2016 02:50 PM

wire-1.jpgHere at Loos and Company, we've been manufacturing the highest quality stainless steel and high nickel alloy wire for over 30 years. In this time, it’s safe to say that we have learned a thing or two about what our customers have come to expect from our wire. Whether you need the extra heat resistance of our Inconel® series, or you are a brush manufacturer and you’re looking for some crimped brass wire, Loos and Company has the wire product for you.

Commercial Wire

When you are trying to decide which alloy to use in your application, there are many factors to take into consideration including the environment in which this wire will be used. Loos and Company manufactures wire in a wide variety of conditions and tensile ranges to meet these requirements, including full hard, three quarter hard, half hard, quarter hard, and fully annealed. See the chart below to learn more about the tensile ranges for specific alloys:

On a daily basis, we work with our customers to make sure we thoroughly understand their needs and that the product we provide them is exactly what they’re looking for.

 Our Jewel Wire Division manufactures both crimped and straight brush wire. When it comes to crimped wire, we can use either gear or pin crimping machines in order to produce the exact product specified. Notably, we are able to crimp on more than one plane when specifically requested.

 Contact one of our brush wire experts today to discuss your application and determine the right product for the job.
