16GA Type 304 & Type 316 Stainless Steel Rebar Wire Ties
Our sixteen gauge stainless bar ties are available in both 316 and 304 grade wire. The most common option is type 304 stainless steel, but for extreme environments, type 316 stainless steel offers even greater corrosion resistance. Marine and coastal jobs will often call for 316 grade as it includes the mineral molybdenum.
Stainless Steel Wire Tie Lengths
Available from 4″ to 18″ in length, our 16-gauge ties (in both 304 and 316 grade SS) are easily bendable and will work well for numerous applications. Whether you purchase them for rebar grids, irrigation projects, or any other outdoor project, these wire ties will hold up and retain their strength for years to come. Included quantity will be either 2500 or 5000 individual ties, indicated alongside the size you choose above.
Domestic-Certified Rebar Wire Ties
If your job is government-funded or you simply prefer to buy American-made products, we offer most of our stainless steel varieties as a certified domestic product. Be sure to select a size above that includes “USA” in the title. If country of origin isn’t a factor, “Imported” products are sourced from various suppliers around the world. We import our bulk stainless steel inventory from wherever we can find the best prices and superb quality. All ties have a wire diameter of 0.062″ (Imperial), 1.5748mm (Metric).
Comparing Type 304 Stainless 16-Gauge Wire Against Type 316 Stainless 16-Gauge Wire
304 and 316 stainless steel are both austenitic grades of stainless steel, which means they share similar properties like high corrosion resistance, ductility, and strength. However, there are some key differences between the two grades. One of the most significant differences is the content of chromium and nickel. 304 stainless steel contains about 18% chromium and 8% nickel, while 316 stainless steel typically contains 16% chromium, 10% nickel, and 2% molybdenum. The addition of molybdenum in 316 stainless steel provides extra corrosion resistance, especially in harsh environments with high levels of chlorides, such as marine environments.
Corrosion-Resistant 16ga Stainless Steel Wire Ties
Another difference between 304 and 316 stainless steel is their susceptibility to corrosion. While both grades are highly resistant to corrosion, 316 stainless steel has superior corrosion resistance due to the presence of molybdenum. This makes 316 stainless steel a better choice for applications where the material is exposed to aggressive chemicals or corrosive environments.
Affordability of 16GA Stainless Steel Wire
In terms of price, 316 stainless steel is generally more expensive than 304 stainless steel, due to the additional cost of molybdenum. However, the added cost is often justified by the increased corrosion resistance and longevity of 316 stainless steel in certain applications. Overall, both 304 and 316 stainless steel are excellent choices for many applications, but the choice between the two will depend on the specific requirements of the application, including the environment, cost, and level of corrosion resistance needed.
