Finishes

Finishes refers to the treatment applied to spring products, clips and wire forms. There are different types of treatments which are performed for a variety of applications, including treatments to prevent rusting and to prolong the life of springs and wire products.

Finishes include:

  • Electrogalvanised plating in clear, yellow or black
  • Nickel plating
  • Copper plating
  • Shot peening
  • Passivation

Finishes are applied to customer specifications and applied to the spring products to perform specific functions optimally. If spring steel components are being electroplated it is highly recommended that a de-embrittlement process is specified to avoid the possibility of spring failure due to hydrogen embrittlement.
