Surface treatments


By discussing with the customer the environment in which the spring operates, it can be determined whether the spring needs additional treatment. It can happen that the working environment affects the spring in such a way that certain materials slowly dissolve.

Another choice as an expensive material is to use surface treatments that help the spring withstand the working environment and not dissolve. The most common surface treatments: electroplating, phosphating, nickel plating, chrome plating, powder coating, tin plating and silver plating / gold plating. All these surface treatments give the spring different properties. This therefore affects the functioning of the spring. Possible influences: extending the service life without altering the mechanical properties. Would you like to read which treatments we offer you?
