“Axalta is excited to bring this new coating technology to our coil spring customer base,” said Craig Dietz, Axalta Product Manager. “These products provide Axalta the opportunity to serve a market that has growing performance needs.”

Complete with enhanced corrosion, impact and stone chip resistance, Spring Black is formulated to allow a vehicle’s coil suspension system to adapt to changing road conditions while supporting the weight of the vehicle.

Coil Suspension System to Perform Without Compromise

The product technology enables the coil suspension system to perform without compromising the integrity of the coating, which is designed as a one layer system. A high build in the coating’s thickness results in an excellent appearance.

Spring Black has a low curing temperature (150°C/302°F metal) which puts less thermal stress on the spring and reduces energy cost. Spring Black covers more surface area faster due to high transfer efficiency saving up to 20% in powder consumption per square meter.
