I think it is "welding wire" steel. I looked up information such as tensile
strength and ductility. (The latter would, I think, impact your question.) What
I found said that phosphor bronze wire has about 2x the tensile strength of
this material. Tony Thompson, the metallurgist, probably can speak to this
more knowledgably.
