Advanced Composite Springs

Deep Deflection, Solid Performance

Composite springs (also referred to as flat springs, flippers, energizers, slats, and exciters) from PolyOne Advanced Composites are engineered with proprietary vinyl ester or epoxy resins and unidirectional glass or carbon fiber reinforcement technologies. These formulations achieve long-lasting, deep, and consistent flexing performance in a variety of cantilevered applications, from vibratory sorting and conveying systems to furniture.

Applications requiring high cyclic fatigue resistance, repeatability, and high performance are well served by composite springs. These include chair tilt spring mechanisms – office chairs, outdoor furniture, medical examination equipment; industrial vibratory conveyors, sorting, separators, feeders; leaf springs; diving board springs; and archery bow limbs.

For more information on mechanical performance and installation instructions, please see the Product Selection and Installation Guide.
