Stainless Steel Lashing Wire
Stainless Steel Lashing Wire is used in a lasher to lash an aerial cable or combination of cables to a supporting strand.
- A specially controlled annealing process yields a uniform,fine grain structure throughout wire length and cross section for best results
- The lashing wire is packaged as 6 coils per carton for your ordering convenience.
- Is available in a 430, 302, and 316 stainless steel alloy.
Type 430 Stainless:
- Low carbon, 17% chromium wire
- Suitable for general use and in ordinary atmospheric exposure.
- Will acquire only a dark surface stain.
- Specifically not recommended for use within 25 miles of salt water or industrial operations which emit pollutants.
Type 302 Stainless:
- 18% chromium, 8% nickel analysis
- This wire has excellent resistance to corrosion from industrial atmospheres.
- Its higher tensile strength and breaking load are an added benefit.
- A .038 in. diameter Type 302 wire provides strength equal to a .045 in. type 430 wire with better ductility (easier bending and unwinding) and better elongation (less chance of wire breakage from stress)
Type 316 Stainless:
- Modified 18-10 analysis containing approximately 2.5% molybdenum.
- More resistant to the corrosive action of most chemicals, including chlorides and sulfides, than any other wire.
- Particularly resistant to pitting and pin hole corrosion of the kind commonly caused by salt spray.
- Its use provides the best insurance against failure under the most severe atmospheric conditions.
- All lashing wire is wound in a straight hub configuration to fit all the standard GMP lashers.
When estimating the length of lashing wire required for a cable run, add the following amounts to the length of the run for single lashing.
Add For Cables Up to
5% 1 1/2 in. dia.
10% 1 1/2 in. to 3 in. dia.
20% Over 3 in. dia.
