Stainless Steel Wire Braid

Braided stainless steel wire

Arcor Electronics offers a selection of braided stainless steel wire tubes. These tubes, however, can be ordered hand rolled flat for use as ground straps or for other applications where flat braid is preferred or needed.

When to Use Stainless Steel Wire

Stainless steel wire is often used for mechanical protection of cable, wire, or fiber optics—in essence, as an outer coating for another material. Steel braid is one of the toughest, most flexible, and most resilient materials that can be used to protect wire, cable, hoses, and more.  The biggest benefit of using stainless steel for shielding and wire jacket purposes is that stainless steel provides resistance to abrasion, UV rays, and chemical corrosion, allowing the exterior to keep a uniform look. For this reason, stainless steel wire is often used in outdoor wiring applications.
