Wire for use in high temperatures where high strength, creep and stress rupture resistance, oxidation resistance or a combination of these is required.
Wire for use in corrosive environments such as gases and liquids. Materials which are resistant to chemical attack in acidic, alkaline or complex environments.
Wire which performs well in aqueous environments. Materials which are resistant to corrosion in subsea or other application areas; where exposure to moisture is commonplace.
Wire for withstanding high loads and / or stresses and those with good strength to weight ratios. In many cases, mechanical properties can be further increased by age hardening with heat treatment.
Wire which has good mechanical properties in low temperature environments, typically materials will be ductile in nature and have good fracture toughness.
Controlled / Low Expansion
Wire which has a low or controlled rate of thermal expansion at room temperature, often used in metal to glass sealing or electronic applications.
Electrical and Electronic
Wire used for high performance electrical and electronic applications (often in high temperatures), selected for their specific electrical and associated properties.
Electrical Resistance Wire
Wire used where linear electrical resistance can be achieved through selection of different sizes and shapes. Often used in heating elements or resistors.
Hot Cutting and Sealing
Wire used typically for packaging and cutting applications. Materials which have electrical resistance properties which allow them to efficiently reach the temperatures required for hot cutting and sealing.
Wire that has properties that lend themselves extremely well to being tailored to very specific applications; examples might include medical devices or watch springs.
