Ordering FAQs


When requesting for a quote or placing an order, there are several key criterion to consider. The more criteria provided, the more accurate we'll be able to quote for you.


When inquiring for Wires:

Grade - This can be expressed using the ASTM, JIS, EN BS or GB standards, you may want to refer to our international stainless steel grades reference or popular stainless steel grade chemical composition reference.

Wire Diameter – This can be in inches, millimeters, AWG, SWG or any other form that we can translate into mm.

Diameter Tolerance / Roundness - Check out our standard table of tolerance & roundness for soft/hard wires, please do let us know if you have any special requirements on the tolerance/roundness of wires.

Mechanical Properties - Depending on the required tensile strength and elongation, SS wires can come into configurations such as W1, W2, W1/4h, W1/2H, WPA, WPB, we usually call them soft wires, hard wires, re-draw wires etc. The required tensile strength is usually expressed in (N/mm2) and the elongation as a percentage (%). You can refer to our standard sheet of tensile strength and elongation for soft/hard wires. Of course, you are also welcomed to tell us what your required tensile strength and elongations are, and we'll tailor make it for you.

Intended Usage - What the customer is planning to use the wires for, e.g. knitting or weaving mesh, braiding hose, welding, etc.

Spool Type - Please refer to our standard table of spool types, geometries and winding capacities. Please let us know if you require special spool types that we don't carry normally, we'll be able to source them.

Order Quantity - How much wire do you need in a single order? A larger single-size wire order quantity will yield a lower production cost and thus discounted price. Our min order quantity (MOQ) is 1000kgs, a typical 20" container can hold around 18 metric tons of wire.

Weight Tolerance - our standard on weight tolerance (and thus final invoiced amount) is ±5%, please let us know if you have any special requirements.

For example, a customer would place a wire order with the following information:
-ASTM 304 stainless steel.
-0.15mm diameter with Sakaguchi standard tolerance/roundness.
-W1 soft annealed wire for braiding hoses.
-On DIN200 spools
-18,000kgs quantity (full container load)


When inquiring for Woven Mesh:

Dimensions - What is the length and width of each roll or piece. Stock widths are usually 24”, 30”, 36”, 48”, and 60”. Special widths can be furnished exactly to fractions of an inch.

Mesh - number of openings per lineal inch. or Space Cloth – opening size (in inches) between parallel wires.
Wire Diameter - expressed in decimal inches or mm.

Metal Grade - This can be expressed using the ASTM, JIS, EN BS or GB standards, you may want to refer to our international stainless steel grades reference or popular stainless steel grade chemical composition reference.

Type of Weave - Plain, Twilled, Plain Dutch, Twilled Dutch, or specify if the material is welded.

Type of Crimp - Double, Intermediate, Lock, or Smooth.

For example, a customer would place an order for the following:
1 roll 100 ft x 36” wide or 1 piece 25 ft x 48” wide
4 x 4 mesh ( 4 openings per inch in each direction)
0.047” diameter wire
SUS304 Stainless Steel Woven Wire Mesh
Plain Weave
