Stainless Steel 316LVM (For Springs)
Regarded as ‘Medical Grade’, this stainless steel 316 is vacuum melted to achieve the extremely high levels of purity and ‘cleanliness’ required for surgical implants. It has excellent resistance in physiological environments, to general and intergranular corrosion, to pitting and crevice corrosion. It can be used for any TSMC spring product such as wave springs, retaining rings and compression springs.
Stainless Steel 316LVM is also known as AISI 316LVM.
