316 Stainless Steel Springs
Springs manufactured from 316 stainless steel are renowned for strength, cleanliness, and resilience to moisture, chemicals, salts, acids, and extreme temperatures. Elevated amounts of chromium produce a surface oxide layer that’s self-healing and corrosion resistant, making this material perfect for maritime, commercial, and industrial environments.

Benefits of 316 stainless steel
Alloy 316 is an austenitic stainless steel with heightened levels of chromium, nickel, and molybdenum. Typically called food- or marine-grade steel, it’s manufactured using precision forming and drawing processes. Characteristics of Grade 316 stainless steel include:
- Enhanced corrosion resistance
- Easy to clean
- Withstands high temperatures
- Excellent aesthetic appeal
- Heightened structural integrity
- Great purity
The boosted amount of molybdenum improves resistance to chloride pitting and saltwater degradation. It’s non-magnetic in the annealed condition but can become magnetic when cold-worked or welded.
Uses for 316 stainless steel springs
With superior performance attributes and an easy-to-clean surface, stainless steel springs are ideal for many applications. Here are some examples:
- Marine parts
- Refinery equipment
- Semi-conductor components
- Liquid storage
- Heat exchangers
- Food-preparation machinery
- Outdoor electrical enclosures
- Pressure vessels
- Food-processing machinery
- Chemical equipment
Type 316 stainless springs don’t require additional processes to prevent rusting. This eliminates tangling and deformation typically associated with the post-plating process.
