Stainless Steel Wire 316Cu

316Cu stainless steel wire or 1.4578 is an austenitic chromium nickel stainless steel containing copper. Except the additional copper content it generally has same properties as stainless steel 316L. The addition of copper makes the material more ductile, making it ideal for cold heading. Lower work hardening levels allow for further machining to take place.
