Various Uses of Stainless Steel Braided Wire

Stainless steel cable is renowned for its strength, flexibility and superior resilience. This makes steel braid a perfect choice for shielding the cables we use on a daily basis in communications and other industries, especially outdoor applications.

The biggest benefit of using stainless steel cable for shielding and wire jacket purposes is stainless steels resistance to abrasion, UV rays and chemical corrosion. It allows the braid to keep a uniform look that will never rust or discolor, allowing it to keep a clean appearance while offering protection for years to come. For this reason, many outdoor wiring applications benefit from the resilient protection of steel braid.

Steel braid is also a popular choice for hose sleeving. Just as many specialty wire and cable applications need the versatility of flexible movement, hosing needs to be able to bend and move freely for installation or due to its environment. Due to its resistance to rust and corrosion, stainless steel braids are an ideal choice for hose sleeving in damp areas or in application where water drips are a hazard. As steel braid can easily be put over existing hoses, it allows for a cheap alternative to buying hosing with a braided wire jacket already in place.
