Automotive Spring Steel

Automotive springs need to perform reliably, robustly and consistently year in, year out. Failure is not an option. That’s why we subject our spring grade steel to rigorous testing to meet the most stringent and safety-critical requirements.

Rigorously tested for reliable performance

Our premium steel grades for automotive spring are subject to rigorous fatigue testing to meet stringent quality criteria. It means you can rely on our wire rod products to perform.

British Steel has extensive experience and expertise in the development and manufacture of a range of products for the automotive industry. These products are helping customers to reduce total cost of ownership.

A cross functional team worked with a key customer to supply Vanadium grade for higher strength, lighter weight springs. This focused product development supported our customer to optimise product life cycle, weight and environmental effect.
