Stainless steel fretwire is the hardest and most durable fret wire available. It is becoming popular because it lasts much longer than traditional nickel-silver wire.
Due to its hardness, stainless steel frets will likely never wear out making refretting unnecessary. They also change the tone of the guitar and are said to wear out strings slightly quicker than traditional frets.
It is best to use diamond coated files when working with stainless frets.
