Stainless spring wire. Similar to EN 1.4310 with increased tensile strength.

GARBA 178Mo is a general-purpose austenitic stainless steel that is used for springs and other components requiring good fatigue resistance and good resistance against atmospheric corrosion. Addition of molybdenum increases the tensile strength as compared to GARBA 188 and also increases the resistance against localised and general corrosion. 

Corrosion resistance
High tensile
Low magnetic
