Fine wire in a wide range of stainless steels and nickel alloys including resistance and resistance heating alloys. Sandvik's fine wire is available in sizes ranging down to 10 microns.
The fine wire is supplied in round or shaped form and is delivered with or without insulation and coating. Sandvik's fine wire is typically used in applications, such as:
- Bonding wire
- Computer disc drives
- Electronic components
- Heating applications like small heaters
- Loudspeaker applications
- Medical devices
Fine wire insulation and coating
Sandvik offers several types of coatings including PTFE coating and adhesive bondcoats for its fine wire, all available in multiple colors.
For insulation and bondable coatings of fine wire Sandvik uses a continuous 'flood coating' process. The 'flood coating' process gives the wire quality and performance benefits over other techniques applied for fine wire, as 'flood coating' guarantees a complete coating over the wire surface, which is both consistent and extremely tenacious.
