Metallic Spring Energized Materials

Specialty Fluid Components has a wide range of standard polymeric seal materials and metallic spring materials available, typically for the needs of severe service duty applications.

Selection of spring materials is very important to achieve optimum seal life. The spring performs as an energizer to provide elasticity and positive sealing in order to withstand the shrinkage force at low pressures and temperatures, thereby creating a tight seal.

Here is a list of typical spring materials:

  • Elgiloy®
  • 17-7PH Stainless Steel
  • Hastelloy®
  • Inconel®
  • Titanium
