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.

It's alright I guess... I had gotten this wire before I discovered Beadalon. Probably got this for the wrong purpose. I did use some for a jewelry tool and it was good.

Outside Diameter: 0.0065Number of Items: 5Overall Length: 60 Verified Purchase
At first I thought I received an empty tube in the mail. This item is of such a small diameter it was hard to see! Frankly, I had no appreciation for just how fine a diameter .0065" was since when I set up my dial caliper at 0.0065" it was hard to see any light between the jaws. The 0.0055" wire was no better! One thing, though, this wire is so fine and so long (5') that getting it out of the clear carrier tube was an adventure. Getting it back in was impossible. I tried zapping it with a ZeroStat(TM) to try to negate the magnetism of the tube. I tried feeding it in an inch at a time. Nothing worked. I eventually had to cut it up in smaller pieces and store it that way. I use this item to make antennas, guide wires, switches, and drawing pen filaments. It is steel so if you should drop it on the floor have a small magnet handy to pick it up.
