Annealed Spring Steel Product Specifications

Annealed spring steel can be utilized in any number of applications, making it an exceptional general use steel. Our annealed spring steel is available in thicknesses ranging from 0.010 to 0.187.


Commonly Stocked Annealed Spring Steel

AISI 1050

Our AISI 1050 annealed spring steel is the most cost-effective option. It can be heat treated for additional hardness and is easily formed. Out of our available spring steels, AISI 1050 has the lowest carbon content.

AISI 1074 and 1075 Spring Steel

We offer both AISI 1074 and AISI 1075 annealed spring steel. Our 1074/1075 spring steel is spheroidized for greater formability and features medium carbon content.

AISI 1095 Spring Steel  

Mead Metals’ AISI 1095 delivers the greatest fatigue values and elasticity of any of our available annealed spring steels. AISI 1095 offers the best quality of all our annealed spring steels and features the highest carbon content.

Production Process

  • Steel is heated to its ideal temperature
  • Ideal temperature is maintained for a predetermined amount of time
  • The material is cooled slowly
  • The annealing process reduces material hardness and increases electrical conductivity

    Easily formable
    Resistant to cracking
    Often largely available in the marketplace


    Appearance can vary from a hot-rolled to cold-rolled look

    The annealing process may result in differing levels of spheroidization, which may impact the uniformity of drawing or bending applications
