With thousands of available products and configurations, we support most industrial applications, no matter the size or the demand. After more than 60 years of industry experience, there are very few applications we have not seen. And for those we haven’t, we have the engineering and quality staff to ensure that your next development project, your next major job, or maybe just the rush order for tomorrow’s production goes off without a hitch. See all our available products and alloys for more detail.
Oil + Gas
No other market demands quite as much from its products. CWI has long been a participant in the manufacturing of specialty and exotic wire grades to meet the highly demanding requirements of heat resistance, strength retention, and reliability. We understand that our oil and gas customers are simultaneously pushing the limits of modern technology and battling the real life time constraints that can cost thousands of dollars per minute. This market needs professional service and product solutions. From demister pads and welding wire to downhole slicklines and cables for sour well monitoring, CWI offers a broad range of products to keep you on schedule no matter what the challenge. CWI alloys used in Oil and Gas Industries are: 316, 17-7 PH (631), Inconel® 600, Inconel® 625, 718, MP35N®, X750, GD316™, GD22™ / SUPA40®, GD31Mo™ / SUPA75®, GD35Mo™, GD37Mo™, GD50™, and SUPA®-GD100™.

Our alloys combat the extreme conditions of mining and exploration. These applications require a combination of strength and exceptional corrosion resistance, especially where saltwater is involved. We provide a full range of high strength wires for solid-strand and stranded cabling applications. CWI alloys used in Mining / Exploration Industries are: 302S, 316, 317, Monel® 400, Monel® K500, Inconel® 600, Inconel® 625, MP35N®, X750, GD31Mo™ / SUPA75®, GD50™. Grades 316, 317, Alloy 50, and 904L have increased levels of molybdenum to resist pitting and surface attack.
The marine environment is the most corrosive natural environment, and CWI has the alloys to combat this environment. Protect your investments and get longer service life by using a top quality stainless or nickel alloy to avoid corrosion or wire & cable failure. We offer a wide range of marine wire and cable – from running and stayed rigging to lashing wire and larger stainless wire ropes for trawling and buoy/recovery applications. CWI alloys used in Marine Industries are 316 317 Monel® 400 Monel® K500 GD50™. Premium alloys 400 and K-500, composed primarily of nickel and copper, are often specified for cold-formed bolts, screws and other fasteners used in saltwater applications. These offer superior corrosion resistance with K-500 offering additional strength properties by age hardening due to the addition of aluminum.
When there are difficult and demanding construction schedules to meet, look to us for your solution. CWI products for stainless reinforced concrete and masonry, and soil stabilization utilizing environmental mesh, architectural mesh panels, stainless nails, and more. Infrastructure investments and civil engineering projects benefit from filtration wires and mesh, as well as stainless wire ropes in hoisting and dam gate applications. CWI alloys used in the construction industry are: 302S, 304, 316, 430.
