Product Description

Stainless Steel 316LVM Wire (ASTM F138 Chemistry Only) is 316L (VM is Vacuum Arc Remelted). The wire is spring tempered, drawn, straightened, cut and cleaned with a bright finish. The wire only meets chemistry of ASTM F138 due to loss in tensile strength as a result of the straightening process yielding a 10% loss in strength. It does however meet ASTM A313 for tensile strength. 316LVM is formulated similar to commercial quality stainless steel, but has been refined by melting or re-melting in a vacuum, a process that segregates the melt from oxygen, nitrogen and other ambient gases, resulting in a cleaner, higher-quality, more pure stainless steel. 316LVM Stainless Steel offers high corrosion resistance for many conditions, particularly when working with phosphoric and acetic acids. This wire comes gun-barrel straight and clean with a bright finish. Many of the sizes listed fit inside diameters of our Hypodermic Tubing. NOTE: When ordering wire, always specify exact dimensions in decimals. Stating gage sizes can lead to confusion, since wire diameters may conform to various gaging systems. Hypodermic tubing gage sizes are based on the Birmingham Gage, also known as Stub's Iron Wire Gage.
