I am working on a project which requires a high strength and high elongation wire for which I have chosen 316 SS. The choice was based on properties given by MatWeb which shows a UTS of 689MPa and an elongation of 50% for a wire diameter of 1.6mm. My problem is that the heat treatment they specify in MatWeb is soft tempered and, as a composites' engineer, I have no idea what temperature and time regime I need to specify to achieve this. I have found a UK source of 316 wire but they want specific heat treatment information. I would be grateful for any enlightenment on the subject.
