How does Polymet form fret wire? Starting with the highest quality nickel silver wire, we form the material into the pattern desired in a highly precise, multiple-step continuous process that yields an excellent surface finish, dimensional accuracy and aesthetic appearance. Following cleaning, the wire is either shipped in large coils, or cut to straight lengths and packaged to your specifications.
