Stainless Steel 317L

£3.50 Inc Vat

10ml Reel

SS 317 is an advanced metal wire used to wrap your own coils for rebuildable atomisers, RTAs & drippers. It can be used for wattage/power modes. A 10m roll like this will make 50-100 standard coils.

SS 317 wire has a very low resistance and is for advanced users only – the resistance is much lower than standard kanthal and will draw a large amount of power from your batteries – please make sure that you are only using high amp rated batteries & have a good understanding of Ohms Law.

Full Description

SS317L Wire

Stainless Steel 317 is a molybdenum-bearing austenitic stainless steel with greatly increased resistance to chemical attack as compared to the conventional chromium-nickel austenitic stainless steel such as SS 304 and SS 316L.

SS 317L is a low carbon version of SS 317 grade which provides resistance to sensitization during welding and other thermal processes.
Stainless Steel 317L is non-magnetic in the annealed condition.

It is important to understand the resistance variation of SS 317L and choose the right gauge/diameter. We recommend always using an ohms reader if using a mechanical mod – most variable wattage devices will read your ohms – for a standard coil build we recommend 6-8 wraps.

It is also helpful to use an online voltage/wattage/resistance calculator like this
