  • Chrome Vanadium Wire – A strong wire that is used for high shock load, a high number of cycles, and moderately high temperature applications.  The presence of chromium and vanadium in the alloy increases the hardness of the material and improves its tensile strength. It meets ASTM A 231 standards.
  • Chrome Silicone Wire – Used for high impact, high shock load, and moderately high temperature applications.  Chrome silicon can be used at temperatures up to 50 degrees F higher than chrome vanadium.   The presence of chromium in the alloy increases the hardness of the material and improves its tensile strength. It meets ASTM A 401 standards.
