Armor wire for logging cables

Armor wire for logging cables in two high-alloy austenitic stainless steels suitable for sour wells. Sandvik's armor wire materials are characterized by high mechanical strength and excellent corrosion resistance, contributing to long service life and safer operations.

Sandvik's logging cable armor wire is supplied cold drawn and degreased in continuous lengths without welds. The armor wire standard surface is matt, providing reduced friction in the pre-form head and increased productivity.
