- Spring steel
Spring steel is a low alloy,
medium carbon steelwith a very high yield strength. This allows objects made of spring steel to return to their original shape despite significant bending or twisting. Siliconis the key component to most spring steel alloys. An example of a spring steel used for cars would be AISI9255 ( DINand UNI: 55Si7, AFNOR55S7), containing 1.50%-1.80% silicon, 0.70%-1.00% manganeseand 0.52%-0.60% carbon.
According to "
Machinery's Handbook", the most widely used spring steel is ASTM A228 (0.80–0.95% carbon), which is also known as music wire.
