Tempered Spring Steel Product Specifications

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 applications 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, and one of its common uses is in springs and steel tapes.
