Oil tempered SiCrV-alloyed spring wire
STATO 75 is especially intended for the manufacture of springs exposed to static or moderately high fatigue stresses. The material has good relaxation properties.
The wire is manufactured in sizes from Ø 2.00 mm to 7.00 mm. Other wire sizes on request.

The proof stress Rp0.2 is min. 0.9 x tensile strength of the wire.
Surface condition – end sample test
The wire is end sample tested by means of etch testing and binocular inspection as well as microscopical inspection of the material structure.
Max. permissible depth of partial surface decarburization and surface defects, 1.5% x wire diameter. No complete decarburization allowed.
E and G modulus of elasticity
About 206 kN/mm2
E and G modulus of shear
About 79.5 kN/mm2
As soon as possible after coiling, the springs should be stress relieved.
After shot peening, the springs should be hot preset or stress relieved. In order to reach optimum fatigue and relaxation properties, the springs must be preset at an appropriate stress
In order to obtain optimum fatigue properties, the process time should be adjusted to get a complete treatment. Size of shots should be adapted to wire dimension, pitch and shot peening equipment. Shot peening of the inside of the spring coils is particularly critical.
