Outokumpu produces stainless steel wire rod in a wide range of grades, sizes and shapes with consistent high product quality and delivery reliability. We can therefore offer a unique selection to our customers. Measurements for round wire rods range from 5.0 – 25.0 mm ( .192” - .984”), for square wire rods 9.0 – 23.5 mm (.354” - .925”), and hexagon wire rods 9.0 – 27.0 mm (.354” – 1.063”).
Our wire rod products come in three heat sizes; 8 tonnes (17,000 lbs), 65 tonnes (143,000 lbs) and 120 tonnes (265,000 lbs). The conditions available are D-cooled, DST-annealed (inline annealing) and batch annealed. In addition, the MOQs come all from 3 tonnes, up to full heats depending on the selected grades.
Suitable for a variety of applications, all from simple to high demanding usage. These include welding, cold heading, spring, high temperature, bright bars and rebars etc.
Wire rod, welding
Our wide range of welding grades are well-suited for both simple and high demanding applications. Thanks to our tight chemistries, we supply equal properties delivery after delivery. We can also supply customized grades to your unique requirements.
To get the best possible properties for welding wire rod, following parameters are important: Tight chemistry for identical properties, mechanical properties and deformation hardening, Corrosion properties, Surface and Dimension tolerances. With our welding wire rod, you can optimize these properties.
Direct cooling (DK) ASTM 10-13
“In line” – annealing (DST) ASTM 5-8
Pit furnace (SG) ASTM 3-6
Our standard procedure is to supply wire rod in pickled condition
