Is spring steel high-carbon steel?
Spring steel is a name given to a wide range of steels used in the manufacture of springs, prominently in automotive and industrial suspension applications. These steels are generally low-alloy manganese, medium-carbon steel or high-carbon steel with a very high yield strength.
How do you identify spring steel?
There are many different types of spring steel. They may be identified by their steel grade, which is determined by a material’s chemical, physical, and environmental properties. They may also be identified by their application, such as compression, torsion, or tension.
