Stainless Steel Lashing Wire is used in a lashing machine to lash a single aerial cable or a combination of cables to a supporting messenger strand.
  • A specially controlled annealing process yields a uniform, fine grain structure throughout wire length and cross section for best results
  • The GMP lashing wire is packaged as 6 coils per carton for your ordering convenience
  • Is available in a 430, 302, and 316 stainless steel alloy
  • All lashing wire is wound in a straight hub configuration to fit all the standard GMP lashes


Type 430 Stainless
  • Low carbon, 17% chromium wire
  • Suitable for general use and in ordinary atmospheric exposure
  • Will acquire only a dark surface stain
  • Specifically not recommended for use within 25 miles of salt water or industrial operations which emit pollutants


Type 302 Stainless
  • 18% chromium, 8% nickel analysis
  • This wire has excellent resistance to corrosion from industrial atmospheres
  • Its higher tensile strength and breaking load are an added benefit
  • A .038 in. diameter Type 302 wire provides strength equal to a .045 in. type 430 wire with better ductility (easier bending and unwinding) and better elongation (less chance of wire breakage from stress)


Type 316 Stainless
  • Modified 18-10 analysis containing approximately 2.5% molybdenum
  • More resistant to the corrosive action of most chemicals, including chlorides and sulfides, than any other wire
  • Particularly resistant to pitting and pin hole corrosion of the kind commonly caused by salt spray
  • Its use provides the best insurance against failure under the most severe atmospheric conditions

Buying tip: When estimating the length of lashing wire required for a cable run, add the following amounts to the length of the run for single lashing.
