Oil tempered spring steel wire
Oil Tempered Spring Steel Wires are used in many applications that are vital to today’s modern economy. From clutch springs used in automotive applications to valve springs, oil tempered spring wires are the unsung heroes in the spring world. They are produced using a silicon-chrome annealed wire, which is heat treated in order to temper the wire.
Typically we supply in 3 different qualities, all to the European norm EN 10270-2, that are specified by our customers depending on their application. FD quality is usually used in static spring applications such as suspension springs, whereas TD is used in moderate fatigue stress environments. VD quality is chosen for high fatigue stress applications such as valve springs. Valve spring applications may also require Superclean and Shaved material which we can offer on request, as well as Eddy Current Testing.
A technically demanding product, they are produced to each individual customers specification by our partners in Italy who are the European market leaders in this product. Oil tempered wires can be supplied in round or custom profiles on request.
