Rail

RW 70

High Strength Hot Cutting Wire. The hot cutting wire RW 70 has high strength at elevated temperatures and is used for cutting polystyrene (EPS) and or heat-sealing polypropylene bags. To achieve the best cut, adjust the temperature and cutting speed. The material type and it’s density will influence the cutting speed.

RW 122

High Strength Hot Cutting Wires. The hot cutting wire RW 122 has high strength at elevated temperatures and is used for cutting polystyrene (EPS) and woven polypropylene bags. To achieve the best cut, adjust the temperature and cutting speed.

RW 41

Ultra High Strength Hot Cutting Wire RW 41 has exceptional strength at elevated temperatures and is the highest performing hot cutting wire Alloy Wire International offer. It has an excellent track record for working continuously and on oscillating cutting frames. To achieve the best cut, adjust the temperature and cutting speed. The material type and it’s density will influence the cutting speed.

45/55 Ni Cu Resistance Wire

45/55 Ni Cu Resistance Wire is a Nickel-Copper alloy wire used mainly for its medium range electrical resistivity and very low temperature-coefficient of resistance. 45/55 Ni Cu Resistance Wire has a medium resistivity and is often used in electrical resistance heating applications. 45/55 Ni Cu Resistance Wire is also known as Constantan, Hecnum, Eureka, Ferry, Vernicon and Advance.

80/20 Ni Cr Resistance Wire

80/20 Ni Cr Resistance Wire is an alloy used at operating temperatures up to 1200°C (2200°F). Its chemical composition gives good oxidation resistance, especially under conditions of frequent switching or wide temperature fluctuations. This makes it ideal for a wide variety of applications including heating elements in domestic and industrial appliances, wire-wound resistors, through to the aerospace industry. 80/20 Ni Cr Resistance Wire is also known as Nichrome / Nicrhrome V, Brightray C, Cronix 80, Nicrothal 80, Chromalloy, Chromel, and Gilphy 80.

Stainless Steel DTD 189A

Stainless Steel DTD 189A is widely used in the aerospace industry, with some of its specific uses being locking wire and other types of fasteners.

Stainless Steel 316Ti

316 Ti has better high temperature strength and mechanical strength than 316L, thanks to the additions of Titanium, which means Stainless Steel 316Ti can be used for extended periods at elevated temperatures without compromising its corrosion resistance. Stainless Steel 316Ti is also known as AISI 316Ti, Supra316Ti, Nirosta 4571, Polarit 761, and Remanit 4571.

Stainless Steel 316LVM

Regarded as ‘Medical Grade’, Stainless Steel 316LVM is vacuum melted to achieve the extremely high levels of purity and ‘cleanliness’ required for surgical implants. It has excellent resistance in physiological environments, to general and intergranular corrosion, to pitting and crevice corrosion. These characteristics make it ideal for both medical application and high precision electronics. Stainless Steel 316LVM is also known as AISI 316LVM.

Stainless Steel 316

Stainless Steel 316 has slightly better corrosion resistance than 302 and 304, and also has better non-magnetic properties. Stainless Steel 316 shows excellent corrosion and oxidation resistance in a range of atmospheric environments and corrosive media. Stainless Steel 316 is also known as AISI 316.

Stainless Steel 304

Stainless Steel 304 is the most widely used stainless steel, and like 302, it has good mechanical properties and corrosion resistance. This alloy can withstand attack in a range of corrosive media, and its durability makes it easy to sanitise, meaning it is ideal for kitchen and food applications. Stainless Steel 304 is also known as AISI 304.

Stainless Steel 302

Stainless Steel 302 has good mechanical properties and corrosion resistance, and is well known for its ease of fabrication and formability. Stainless Steel 302 is also known as AISI 302.

Nitronic** 60

Nitronic 60 is an anti-galling and wear resistant stainless steel. Additions of Silicon and Manganese have given this alloy the ability to prevent wear and galling. Nitronic 60 is also known as Alloy 218 and HPA 50.
