301 Stainless Steel Strip for Spring Applications

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. 

Extremely light-gauge, narrow-width 301 stainless steel strip

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.

For a list of our standard 301 gauges view here: 301 Strip. If you don’t see the gauge you are looking for, contact us.  The majority of the 301 we provide is made to our customers’ precise and custom requirements.

Gibbs has been supplying wire and strip products to the spring industry since 1956.  We understand the needs and challenges spring manufacturers face.  We want to be your 301 partners.  Call us at 800-800-4422 or contact us below

    Gibbs Launches A Contest of Ideas! Win $1000, $500, or $300!


    Invent or Create a Product or Service Utilizing Stainless Steel Coil Scrap and/or Excess Inventory and Win Up to $1000.00!

    Gibbs is looking for a creative use of our scrap and excess inventory created from our slitting process. Slitting is a metal cutting process that ‘slices’ narrower coils from a wider coil.  The coil cutting process requires us to take an outer edge cut or a “side-cut” that frequently becomes scrap. In addition, the coil cutting process can produce shavings, which also become scrap. The ‘middle material’, or prime coil material, is utilized for many applications but, we may have overages of excess of prime coil inventory on our shelves, that goes unused.

    Rather than scrap the side-cuts, shavings, and prime excess inventory, we’d like you to suggest a use, re-use, re-purpose, creation, service, or invention!  You may suggest an idea from one or all of the forms of excess material we have!

    We want your ideas and we’re giving away $1000.00, $500.00, and $300.00 prizes!
