Stainless Steel Springs | KB Delta

Although certain materials have been regarded as a spring material, not all are specially designed alloys for spring use. An ideal spring material will have properties of high strength, high elastic limit, and low modulus. Because springs are inherently resilient structures, they are designed to experience large deflections, requiring an extensive elastic range. Other characteristics, […]
