Product Spotlight: Chrome Silicon Spring Applications

Chrome Silicon Spring Wire is used in the manufacturing of chrome silicon springs due to its high tensile strength and resilience. The wire is cold drawn and heat-treated by the steel mills before fabrication allowing it to withstand high load stresses and temperatures compared to other materials. Making it the ideal choice for fabricating springs. Chrome silicon spring wire can be manufactured into various spring types: compression springs, extension springs, torsion springs, and other wire forms. In recent years the demand for chrome silicon springs has increased for reasons such as:

  • Highly resistant to wear and tear

  • Temperature resistant up to 50 degrees Fahrenheit, making it perfect for the assembly of fuel equipment and engine valves

  • Highly durable due to being cold drawn and heat treated

  • Its high tensile strength allows it to withstand shock loads and stress which makes it the best choice for gun recoils and performance vehicles
