Annealed, Full, and Half Hard are descriptive terms for the way the wire was cured in the drawing process. Each of these techniques will help yield different tensile strengths given in thousands of pounds per square inch (ksi or kPSI). The main points to think about are that the higher the ksi the more brittle the wire is but the better it retains its shape. The high ksi wire is good for making straight electrodes that need to penetrate through tissue. The low ksi is a softer more flexible wire, it is less likely to break if you repetitively bend the wire. This low ksi wire is good for making twisted pair electrodes.
