PLASTIC SPRING MATERIAL INQUIRY

PLASTIC SPRING MATERIAL INQUIRY

(OP)
would anybody know what kind of plastics in sheet/film form you would use for making springs?

RE: PLASTIC SPRING MATERIAL INQUIRY

Acetal copolymer is a very good spring material. Please visit one of the big acetal makers' websites like Ticona or BASF or others.

RE: PLASTIC SPRING MATERIAL INQUIRY

It is also possible to use TFM material for springs, for more information You need to contact Dyneon in Germany (Kelsterbach)

RE: PLASTIC SPRING MATERIAL INQUIRY

I agree that acetal is a good spring plastic.

But I want to add that plastic springs should be used with caution. Plastic is ok for springs that will be under load only briefly, as in a spring that snaps a switch from one position to the next. Long term loading should be avoided sinc ANY plastic will "relax" in time.
