Materials Used in Springs: Oil Tempered Springs

How Oil Tempered Springs Are Made

Oil tempered springs are formed from an oil tempered wire. The process of oil tempering begins with heating the wire that will be used, then cooling it in oil. That step is repeated until the desired results are achieved. This process gives the wire some unique qualities, including durability and flexibility, making it perfect for a wide variety of applications. Then here at Ajax Springs, we receive the now oil tempered wire and form it into varying types of springs.

The Properties & Applications of Oil Tempered Springs

  • Oil tempered springs are some of the strongest and most durable springs that modern manufacturers make.
