GARBA 1812Mo

Stainless spring wire

GARBA 1812Mo is an austenitic stainless steel, which as compared to GARBA 178Mo offers a higher resistance against intergranular corrosion due to lower carbon content. The higher content of molybdenum also increases the resistance against general corrosion.

Recommendations

Heat treatment

As soon as possible after coiling, the springs should be stress relieved.
Recommended temperature for compression springs or tension springs without initial tension is approx. 420 ºC for 0.5 - 4 hours.
