316 Stainless Steel Springs

316 Stainless Steel Compression & Extension Springs

316 stainless steel springs are low carbon and rust-resistant. This makes them particularly well suited for applications where they'll be regularly exposed to liquids. Some examples include medical, food, and marine applications, though they can be used in any application interchangeably with our regular 302 stainless steel springs. MW Components offers 316 stainless steel compression springs and 316 stainless steel extension springs. All 316 Stainless Steel springs include standard passivation.

316 Stainless Steel raw material is also available for custom built-to-spec applications and many standard 302 Stainless Steel stock springs can be custom ordered in 316 Stainless Steel.
