Corrosion is the deterioration of a metal and its properties as a result of extended exposure to a substance that negatively reacts with metal. The level of corrosion protection required is application-specific, and the type of corrosion will also vary. Carbon steels, such as music wire, spring steel, and chrome vanadium that do not have a coating, are the most at risk for corrosion. Stainless steels and exotic alloys offer protection from various agents.
When creep and fatigue start to set in, the life cycle and performance of the spring can be negatively impacted, which can, in turn, impact the application's ability to function as intended. So what is creep?
Raymond® Standard US Inch Series Die Springs have been upgraded to bring a better finish and inventory to a century-old, industry-trusted product. The new powder-coated finish is replacing the old dip and spin process to provide a better, long-term finish and better coating adhesion, corrosion resistance, surface coverage, and color alignment.
When it comes to counterbalance solutions, there are many products on the market, including different brands of Gas Struts. With varying size, force, lengths, and materials, there is a lot to consider when choosing a product. But how much do you know about Gas Struts?
Shock Absorbers, Dampers, and Gas Struts are components that look similar but perform different tasks. Some confusion exists around which product does what. Associated Spring RAYMOND, an expert in spring design for more than 135 years, has the answer for what each product is and its primary function.

Raymond® Mechanical Struts are a counterbalance solution that can perform where other strut products cannot. They are a seal-less, gas-less, and oil-less counterbalance solution that does not require maintenance and can function in numerous industries. A highly reliable product, Mechanical Struts can produce consistent, repeatable loads at varying intervals. Ideal for applications that cannot risk failure and in environments where corrosion is a concern or where temperatures may be extremely high or low.
For the most part, when customers purchase Gas Struts from Associated Spring RAYMOND, they come standard with End Fittings. While End Fittings are standard with the purchase, what comes with the Gas Strut is not their only option.
Successful at reducing unwanted and potentially damaging shock loads through their ability to transfer energy and redistribute it effectively over a short distance, shock absorbers are the only product that can completely stop a motion.
