Custom Spring Passivation

From consumer products to heavy industrial equipment, springs are likely involved if the device has moving parts. Without additional protection, though, premature degradation may occur with prolonged exposure to harsh operating conditions.

Boost the performance of your application with spring passivation services from Custom Spring Manufacturing. As a leading passivated spring fabricator, we’re uniquely positioned to meet your needs on time and at competitive prices.

Benefits Of Spring Passivation

Passivation is a metal finishing process that prevents corrosion. The steel spring workpiece is immersed in nitric or citric acids, which remove free iron from its surface while forming a protective oxide barrier.

Passivating springs offers many advantages. Examples include:

  • Extends A Product’s Lifespan
  • Removes Surface Contaminants
  • Reduces Maintenance Requirements
  • Lowers Long-Term Costs
  • No Discoloration
  • Environmentally Friendly Process
  • Doesn’t Alter Workpiece Dimensions
  • Boosts Surface Cleanliness

How Does Spring Passivation Work? 

It’s easy to view passivation as a metal finishing process, which occurs after springs are formed. The formed spring is cleaned, placed in the acid bath for a set duration, and then dropped in water. The process creates a corrosion-resistant layer on the outside, typically referred to as a passivation film.
