I'm looking for some technical advice on a design which I working on. I'm looking for a type of plastic that works for a small spring (Free length of 10 mm and 5 actives coil) with low compression resistance. I'm aware that the plastic must have a higher Young's modulus in order to prevent a permanent deformation.
In the picture below you see the model spring that I need, but obviously in plastic.
