301 Full Hard is an austenitic stainless steel which differs from other forms of 301 offered by United Performance Metals in that it has been cold rolled to its full hard condition. This increases the metal's attractiveness for forming and increases its fatigue life. In its full hard condition, type 301 has a tensile strength of 185,000 PSI 301 Stainless Steel Coil UNS S30100 Strip & Foil UlbrichType 301 steel exhibits corrosion resistance comparable to type 302 and 304. In the cold worked and annealed condition, type 301 achieves its most optimal resistance to corrosion. It is preferable over types 302 and 304 in the tempered condition because the higher enlongations (which are attainable at a given strength level) facilitate fabrication.
AISI 301 stainless steel is the most common and affordable type of stainless alloy. It exhibits good corrosion resistance as well as excellent spring properties. AISI 301 stainless steel can be used for high temperatures up to 550°F (288°C). Some of the other features and benefits of 301 stainless steel stampings, include: 301-1/4 Hard Tempered Stainless Steel Sheet & Coil - AMS 301-1/4 Hard Tempered Stainless Steel Sheet & Coil - AMS 5517. 301-1/4 Hard is an austenitic stainless steel that has been cold rolled to its 1/4 hard condition. This increases the metal's attractiveness for mild drawing, stretching and forming operations. At 1/4 Hard, Type 301 has a tensile strength of 125,000 PSI minimum, and a minimum yield Custom Torsion Springs & Prototype Manufacturer M & S Typically the more malleable spring materials (i.e. Music Wire ASTM A228, Oil Tempered Wire ASTM A229, and 302 Stainless Steel ASTM A313) are used when torsion spring legs require tight bend radii. Generous bend radii in leg configurations, and any bend areas, helps to prevent fracturing in the spring
Stock Spring Series Music Wire Stainless Steel Elgiloy Oil Tempered MB Chrome Silicon General heat resistant spring wire and better corrosion resistance than Type 302/204. Slightly magnetic. Often used in marine applications, resists chloride attack. No. 1 Temper:155 Min, Spring Temper:180 - 220 31 :12 750 - 1100 °F Spring Material Spring Material Types Spring EngineersThe term "Spring Steel" encompasses a wide array of possibilities. Spring Engineers will help you in selecting the most appropriate and cost effective material for your application. Our inventory of wire, tubing, strip and bar is extensive. Don't limit your designs to round wire. We have square, flat, rectangular and specially shaped wire. Stress Relief - Heat Treat DoctorIn another example4, stress relief yields maximum me-chanical properties in 302 stainless steel wire between 600°F (315°C) and 900°F (480°C). The fatigue properties of the wire are optimum at a stress relief temperature of 1200°F (650°C). However, mechanical properties such as yield strength, modulus of resilience, modulus
The reason it is not specified for them, is that 301 has a more predictable work hardening rate in that range. 301SI was designed specifically for high temper applications like springs, fasteners, washers, zippers, clips and clamps. Normal 301 has a maximum Silicon content of 1%, while 301SI has a minimum Silicon content of 1% and a max of 1.35%.Tempered & Specialty Metals Tempered and Specialty Tempered and Specialty Metals is one of the steel industrys most respected service centers and premier source for tempered stainless coil. Our vast in-house capabilities include virtually every facet of coil processing, including temper and gauge correction, tension leveling, slitting, and edge conditioning.
