With respect to famous brands of spare parts, there are some misconceptions. For example, even in the environment of professionals, many believe that really high-quality spare parts are issued only for premium cars, and only for fresh versions of their models.

This community is refuted, in particular, one of the oldest European producers of high-quality springs and springs — company

However, for the sake of justice, we note: foreign brands are infrequently offering products for Russian cars. And what is interesting such an offer for the consumer? This is obvious: it attracts the ability to significantly «extend the life» of the beloved car, which still rides, despite the fact that the model is not produced for more than 30 years.

Spring steel has a number of features, such as strength, a very high yield strength, an acceptable level of corrosion stability, the quality of the material surface, the absence of non-metallic impurities.

The most important indicator of spring steel is its strength. To understand how strong the steel wire is, it is stretched until the gap does not occur. In the production of springs

How much the material is capable of maintaining the original form when flexing and twisting, characterizes the yield strength. In steel with which it works

High rates of strength and flowability are achieved by heat treatment — its hardening and release, as well as by adding special alloying elements to steel: silicon, manganese, chromium. Alloying additives provide springs and high levels of corrosion resistance.

The quality of the surface of the finished product is considerably. Such defects as the exfoliation or cracking of the metal significantly reduce the strength of the springs. Also on strength not for the better, the number of non-metallic impurities affects: than them are more, the higher the probability of the concentration of impurities at one point, in which a breakdown may occur when the load may occur.

In spring wire, which is used in
