Product Description

3.2mm Clear Coated 7×7 G316 Stainless Steel Wire Rope is primarily used in off shore fishing, hanging/display, shop fitting, industrial design and control cables. The 3.2mm 7×7 G316 Stainless Steel Wire Rope core has a Clear Coating. The wire has virtually no stretch and mid range flexibility. The flexibility and coating of the wire means it handles easily. The coating keeps is secure from fraying. As a result, it best Manually Swaged with Copper Ferrules. Both Professionals and DIY guys choose this wire for projects. Usage of the wire suits fittings for 3.2mm. Tensile Strength (MBS) = ~703.6kg


Usage: This 3.2mm Clear Coated 7×7 G316 Stainless Steel Wire Rope has a cumulative diameter of ~4.0mm. We recommend this wire with Thimble and Ferrule fittings. Additional uses include: Picture Rail, Shop Fitting, Presentation structuring, Light Rigging, Tagging and Security Wire.


Length of Wire: Use combinations of the offered lengths to get the desired total length. For example – choose a quantity of “8” of the 10M length to select a single length of 80 Metres. We cut and ship all Wire Rope orders as a single length. As a result, each wire order is packed as a coil or a reel depending on length and all are factory wrapped and sealed. A requirement of less than 100M on a reel needs a special order (please phone first).


Quality: All Low Cost Wire products meet our strict ISO Quality Standards. Likewise, our Stainless Steel Wire is AISI Mill Certified at manufacture. Our wire rope delivers the optimal balance between high tensile strength, fatigue resistance, abrasion resistance, and structural stability. Finally, our process provides a special treatment for a bright and smooth surface on the wire and cable. As a result, this delivers a truly top-shelf, long lasting product that will look new for ages…

Usage Tips

  • First of all, this wire may be manually, or hydraulically swaged - or mechanically fastened with Wire Rope Grips - but you MUST take off the coating first.
  • Cutting of the wire is best done using Parrot Beak cutters (collapsing trapezoidal design) rather than shears or a grinder.
  • Terminal Loops are formed with Mechanical fastening or manual swaging. In addition, terminal loops must use stainless steel thimbles (eyelets) to retain the strength of the wire by distributing the load along the entire length of wire in the terminal loop (available here). Recommended for only 7x7 and 7x19 structures
  • Mechanical fastening is done with Wire Rope Grips (Bulldog Grips) Low Cost Wire does not recommend this approach. Industry practice is three per terminal loop for safety purposes. This only suits 7x7 and 7x19 structures.
  • Manual swaging is done using Ferrules (or crimps or hand swages) rather than Wire Rope Grips. Nickel Coated Copper is used instead of Aluminum because matching alloys is important. As a result, catastrophic swaging failure will not occur. Aluminium swages WILL cause a dissimilar alloys reaction and as a result corrode the Stainless Steel wire. Low Cost Wire strongly recommends an All-in-1 swaging tool. Recommended for only 7x7 and 7x19 structures
  • Hydraulic swaging is done using a hydraulic press either bench mounted or hand held. Hydraulic swaging for architectural purposes may economically use a Professional Hydraulic Swaging Tool while remaining work safe. These tools generate pressure 'spot' welds. Low Cost Wire strongly recommends that hydraulic swaging for lifting and marine applications use a bench mounted hydraulic press which can generate pressure 'seam' welds. Recommended for 1x19. (works with 7x7 and 7x19 structures).

Installation Considerations

  • Matching alloys is important and avoiding cross contamination is very important. Standard fittings for G316 Stainless Steel Wire are made from either Nickel Coated Copper or Stainless Steel. Contact with Aluminium or Carbon Steel is NOT recommended as it will cause a corrosive (galvanic) reaction.
  • It is recommended that similar alloy fasteners are used so that a dis similar (corrosive) alloy reaction is avoided. Generally G304 Stainless Steel screws are used in timber (counter sunk screws in soft woods and pan head screws in hard woods). Generally, G304 Stainless Steel Rivets are used to attach Eye Strap Saddle fittings to metal surfaces (aluminium, mild steel, and stainless steel).
  • It may be necessary to (electrically) isolate and insulate fittings from any non stainless steel substrate material - again to avoid a galvanic (dissimilar alloys) reaction. This can be done using an insulation device such as nylon washers or grommets
  • Lengths of wire less than 100M are cut and labelled as a coil. Lengths of 150M and above are (generally) delivered on a reel however, small lengths can be put on a drum for a small additional cost (please refer to our Reeling Service
