Compression Springs and Medical Industry Springs
We are pleased to share information about grade 302 stainless steel wire and small and large stainless steel springs (18% chromium, 9% nickel with carbon, manganese, and some silicon). Stainless steel wire springs and stainless steel alloy springs have mechanical properties and corrosion resistance that is superior. Stainless steel spring wires are economical and offer high tensile strength as well as slight magnetic properties.
Austenitic type 302 stainless steel is also an extremely popular grade because of its heat resistance under temperatures as high as 550º F (288º C). 302 stainless steel springs are also cost effective (the lowest cost stainless).
