Making and using Stainless Steel braided wire.

Braided Stainless Steel wire is typically used for flexible applications, and can be formed into a flat shape or a tube shape, depending on what you need to use it for. 

Braided wire, however, consists of more than just conductive metal. It can be comprised shielding, as well, and is grounded only at one end. The function of a tubular steel braid is to form a protective sleeve around the conductive wires it shields. Braiding consists of right and left-handed wrapped wire bundles that are alternately layered one over the other. This not only prevents hose lengthening due to internal pressure, but also absorbs external tensile forces and protects the outside of the hose.

The braiding also greatly increases resistance to internal pressure if used with hoses. The braid flexibly moulds itself to the movement of the wire or host inside it. This applies even if a second braiding is used, which further increases pressure resistance. Due to its inherent flexibility, the braid moulds itself perfectly to the movement of the wire or hose.
