Default Lockwire and Immersion Chillers

Ok, I have some Aircraft SS Lockwire from a previous job. Im taking a new immersion chiller and using the lockwire to hold the coils in place. Most of you know your copper chiller will expand after time. So I figured if I put 3-4 different loops on the chiller so now the lockwire will make sure it always holds its shape.

Now. I've cleaned off the surface of the wire, but i was just wondering if there was anything else I should be worried about when putting this in the boiling wort. You don''t think Ill be leaching anything do you. It says its stainless, but nothing about anything else in the metal. Should I be worried about it?

Stainless lock wire should be fine.
