Micro Wire 0.26 and 0.51 mm diameter
These very fine stainless steel micro cables have many uses. They will form virtually invisible suspension wires which are ideal for display or theatre use. They make excellent small control wires for animatronics and special effects. Ideal for use on model yacht rigging. The wires are made from 304 grade of stainless steel which is marginally less resistant to corrosion than 316 grade but is stronger.
We would recommend that you carry out your own tests to establish a minimum breaking load of the finished assembly and then apply a safety factor of at least times five. To terminate these micro cables we recommend using the special ferrules developed by Nicopress® to solve the old problem of making secure terminations in these very small wires.
We also supply small brass ferrules [not Nicopress®]. When using ferrules any nylon covering should be stripped back and the ferrule should be chosen to suit the actual wire diameter.
