Stainless Steel Wire Rope

The flexible wire rope is most commonly used for running rigging applications. It is strong, medium flexible cable; commonly used for wire halyards. Each of the seven strands consist of 19 individual wires, which is oil free and highly polished. "BL" is the breaking load and "WLL" is the maximum working load recommended. 316 is the suggested alloy for corrosive enviornments.

We have Sizes 0.15 - 40mm available along with some other sizes.



Stainless Steel Grade 316 is the standard molybdenum-bearing grade, second in importance to 304 amongst the austenitic stainless steels. The molybdenum gives 316 better overall corrosion resistant properties than Grade 304, particularly higher resistance to pitting and crevice corrosion in chloride environments. Stainless Steel 316 has excellent forming and welding characteristics. It is readily brake or roll formed into a variety of parts for applications in the industrial, architectural, and transportation fields. Stainless Steel Grade 316 also has outstanding welding characteristics. Post-weld annealing is not required when welding thin sections.

Stainless Steel Grade 316L, the low carbon version of Stainless Steel 316 and is immune from sensitisation (grain boundary carbide precipitation). Thus it is extensively used in heavy gauge welded components (over about 6mm). Stainless Steel Grade 316H, with its higher carbon content has application at elevated temperatures, as does stabilised Stainless Steel grade 316Ti.

The austenitic structure also gives these grades excellent toughness, even down to cryogenic temperatures.


Stainless Steel 316 Physical Properties

Density: 8,000 kg / m3
Elastic Modulus: 193 GPa
Specific Heat: 500 J/kg.K

Stainless Steel 316 Corrosion Resistance

Excellent in a range of atmospheric environments and many corrosive media - generally more resistant than 304. Subject to pitting and crevice corrosion in warm chloride environments, and to stress corrosion cracking above about 60°C. Considered resistant to potable water with up to about 1000mg/L chlorides at ambient temperatures, reducing to about 500mg/L at 60°C. Stainless Steel 316 is usually regarded as the standard "marine grade stainless steel", but it is not resistant to warm sea water. In many marine environments 316 does exhibit surface corrosion, usually visible as brown staining. This is particularly associated with crevices and rough surface finish. 

Stainless Steel 316 Heat Resistance 

Good oxidation resistance in intermittent service to 870°C and in continuous service to 925°C. Continuous use of 316 in the 425-860°C range is not recommended if subsequent aqueous corrosion resistance is important. Grade 316L is more resistant to carbide precipitation and can be used in the above temperature range. Grade 316H has higher strength at elevated temperatures and is sometimes used for structural and pressure-containing applications at temperatures above about 500°C.
