Shanghai Metal Corporation is a leading Nickel Plated Steel Wire manufacturer and supplier.
Nickel Plated Steel Wire also named Piano wire, or "music wire", is a specialized type of wire made to become springs or (as the name implies) to be used as piano strings. It is made from tempered high-carbon steel, also known as spring steel, which replaced iron as the material starting in 1834. Piano wire has a very high tensile strength to cope with the heavy demands placed upon piano strings; accordingly, piano wire is also used for a number of other purposes, including springs, surgical uses, and in special effects.
General-purpose, high-carbon steel, drawn music wire (such as ASTM A228) is manufactured in both inch and metric music wire gauges (m.w.g.) in diameters as small as 0.15 mm up to 4.8 mm (0.006 to 0.192 inch). A small number of companies produce the tough, high tensile polished wire intended for limited music instrument markets, which is manufactured from steel of a specific composition by cold drawing. Unlike many other forms of wire, piano wire has no twist and is not formed from bundles of smaller-diameter wires.

Application of NI-SWPA/B Nickel-Coated Piano Wire:
Piano wire is also used in the fabrication of springs, fishing lures, special effects in the movie industry,scaffold cross-bracing, orthodontic and pharyngial surgery, and for the cutting of cheese and soap. It is also commonly used in hobby applications such as model railroading, both control line and radio-controlled aircraft, and knitting.At least in urban legend, it is employed by assassins as a garrote.
It is suitable for making all kinds of pressure, tension and torsion springs. It is suitable for winding all kinds of springs, automobile engine valve bombs, precision instruments, electrical equipment, production machinery, brake spring, clutch spring, refrigerator compressor spring and other springs under dynamic load
