301 Stainless Steel Strip for Spring Applications UNS 30100, UNS 30116, ASTM A666
301 stainless steel strip is a preferred alloy for tempered applications due to its strength, corrosion resistance, and durability. 301 coil is a common choice for many products including filter snap bands, point of purchase displays, window counterbalance springs, constant force springs, medical devices, zippers, clips, clamps, fasteners, oil & gas products, and more. Gibbs also offers edging/skiving services for our 301 slit coil to help equalize the stresses across the width of the strip. Our proprietary round edge has set us apart from the competition. Customer feedback noted it may be a factor in improving the life cycle of their springs. In addition to coil edging, we have the capability to oscillate wind your strip onto numerous size reels and spools providing trouble-free payoff with longer runs.
Gibbs supplies 301 in many tempers. Spring manufacturers often require our High Yield and High Silicon stock with a 270 KSI or higher minimum tensile. The addition of silicon to 301 allows for high strength with increased ductility.
Our material gauges start at .0019” and can be slit as narrow as .024”. Our extremely light-gauge and narrow-width slitting capabilities ensure Gibbs can provide you 301 strip for a wide variety of spring and product dimensions.
