Tempered Spring Steel Product Specifications
Our tempered spring steel, commonly referred to as high carbon steel, meets ASTM A684 specifications and is useful for a number of applications.
We supply 1075 scaleless blue tempered spring steel. It is softer than 1095, and it has medium carbon content and a polished finish. It can be used for a variety of applications, including lower carbon where a polished surface is not required.
Our 1095 scaleless blue tempered spring steel is harder than 1075, but it is not as easily formable. It features a higher carbon content and a polished finish. AISI 1095 tempered spring steel is ideal for a number of uses, including use in springs and steel tapes.
Shim Stock Material
Tempered spring steel, both 1075 and 1095 make excellent carbon steel shims as well. A shim is a thin and sometimes tapered or wedged piece of metal, used to fill small gaps or spaces between objects. Shims are typically used to support or provide a level surface. They're also used as spacers to fill gaps between parts that can be subject to wear and tear, or damaged if not properly installed.

Minimum Order Quantity Policy
Our Minimum Order Quantity policy enables us to suit metal product orders of all sizes. Every metal product we provide has its own MOQ, and for tempered spring steel, our MOQ is 10-12#. While we can and will support orders for quantities smaller than this, the minimum lot charge will remain the same for any quantities ordered at or below a metal’s MOQ. Additional variables apply depending on material thickness, width, and additional processing.
