Since 1907, National Standard has led the American charge to manufacture high-quality wire to feed our customers’ success. Our unparalleled wire expertise has shaped the industry and continues to drive innovation today. Because wire is our singular focus, no other company knows more. When reliability counts, we are the wire experts our customer depend on for the long haul.
We make the wire that makes our world stronger. National Standard’s integrity — in our people and our wire — is trusted by leading companies across diverse industries. Our wire delivers our energy and safeguards our highways. It frames our skyscrapers, strengthens our tires and softens our beds. National Standard wire is part of the fabric of our country.
From our earliest days providing tire bead for our nation’s first generation of automobiles after the turn of the century, National Standard has been on the forefront of innovative wire solutions. Today, our advanced products include a full range of welding wires.
NS Plus®, our premium carbon steel copper-coated welding wire series, a mild steel solid filler welding wire for industrial and light duty applications, offers optimum feedability, enhanced welding performance, low spatter levels and longer tip life.
National Standard’s CopperFree™ welding wire series is renowned for superior performance in reducing smoke and spatter.
Our NS Tru Core® line includes flux cored and metal cored gas-shielded carbon steel electrodes for single and multiple pass welding. Patented forming, feeding and drawing equipment with precise thermal treatment controls the type, amount and uniformity of surface oxides on the wire.
National Standard’s Satin Glide® stainless steel and Alumi Glide® aluminum welding wires are available in spools and cut lengths for MIG & TIG applications. National Standard can also provide import mild steel welding wire.
National Standard’s innovative packaging solutions include Tru-Trac® wood reels, which maximize productivity and reduce downtimes associated with change-outs, and have a smaller dispersion pattern than barrel drum packages. Tru-Trac®’s snag-free operations without drive roll overload deliver precise joint tracking and its “twistfree” wire let-off from a stationary tight wound reel requires only a few ounces of drag from up to 150’ from wire feeder.
Our Smart Pak® drum packaging is 100% recyclable, with lifting straps for easy maneuverability. Multiple engineered wire dispensing solutions accommodate any shop configuration and its wire let-off system provides smooth feeding.
