  • Stainless-Steel-Wire

    Type 302 stainless steel wire is a general purpose stainless alloy typically composed of 18% chromium and 8% nickel. It is the most widely used stainless spring wire because of its high corrosion resistance properties and good tensile strength. For spring applications it is generally furnished in the cold drawn condition. Type 302 springs have good strength at moderate temperatures. If properly treated after forming they will set less than most other springmore

  • Stainless-Steel-Wire

    Type 302 stainless steel wire is a general purpose stainless alloy typically composed of 18% chromium and 8% nickel. The balance of the chemistry is: carbon 15% maximum, manganese 2.00% maximum: and silicon 1.00% maximum. It is the most widely used stainless spring wire because of its high corrosion resistance properties and good tensile strength. For spring applications it is generally furnished in the cold drawn condition. Nickel coated stainless steel wire wasmore

  • Stainless-Steel-Wire

    Similar in composition to Type 302, Type 316 stainless steel wire has a slightly higher nickel content and 2-2.50% molybdenum giving this alloy better corrosion resistance. Type 316's tensile strength is 10-15% lower than that of Type 302, and the alloy is slightly less magnetic in the spring temper than Type 302. With its superior cold working properties, it can be used for severe cold forming operations and exhibits short time tensile and creep strength properties atmore

  • Stainless-Steel-Wire

    Type 17 chrome - 7 nickel stainless steel wire (AISI 631) has the corrosion resistance of Type 302 plus superior strength and heat resistance. This grade of stainless wire possesses high elastic qualities similar to music wire while maintaining the corrosion resistant qualities of the standard Type 302 stainless. The alloy is an excellent material for all kinds of springs where long life is required under severe service conditions, providing excellent fatigue properties,more
