Breaking Strength of High-Tensile Wire

Often confused, PSI and KSI are really just a conversion of one another. In terms of advertising our wire PSI and KSI represent minimums relative to breaking strength. PSI=Pound per square inch KSI=Kilo-pound per square inch=1000 PSI 210 KSI=210,000 PSI PSI  used to calculate the breaking strength of wire Area=(½ x diameter)² x Π Where minimum breaking […]
