STANDARD STEEL GRADES FOR BRIGHT FORMING WIRE

We have a wide range of bright forming grades (austenitic, ferritic and Duplex), all from simple to high demanding applications. Thanks to our tight chemistries we supply equal properties delivery after delivery.

See our product leaflet for bright forming wire where we show some of our standard grades. We can also supply customized grades to your unique requirements:

IMPORTANT PROPERTIES FOR BRIGHT FORMING WIRE

To get best possible properties for bright forming, following parameters are important:

  • Bright surfaces with high surface smoothness
  • Equal mechanical properties
  • Corrosion properties
  • Dimension tolerances 

BRIGHT SURFACES

Products made from bright forming wire are often used in environments where there are high demands with regards to hygiene and aesthetical properties. It is therefore important that the surfaces are bright and free from defects, which also gives an optimum result at the electropolishing process. We have developed our own various bright drawing methods which makes it possible for us to offer everything from standard to high demanding surfaces:

  • FAGERSTA Standard
  • FAGERSTA PCD
  • FAGERSTA Royal
