Component Supply's guide wire assemblies consist of stainless steel hypodermic tubing and straightened wire. A 36" length of 304V (or 304 depending on the diameter) stainless steel straightened wire is selected to fit as closely as possible to the inside diameter of a 30" length of 304 stainless steel hypodermic tubing. The stainless steel material of both components make guide wire assemblies effective for applications requiring strength, uniformity and corrosion resistance.
