Patented Wire is a standard grade music wire that has been conditioned for spring and wire rope applications where strength and high tensile are needed. Patenting is a heat treatment process that improves the durability and strength of the wire. The process involves an in-line heat treatment at 970 degrees Fahrenheit and then cooled in a variety of mediums including air and lead. The resulting wire has a fine pearlite structure with little or no separation of the ferrite (iron).
All of Gibbs music wire under .055” diameter is patented. Size above .056” are available upon request.
