disc springs are annulus discs stressable in the axial direction, which are turned over in the shape of a disc in the axial direction. disc springs provide a more favorable space usage than other spring types. They are particularly suitable for designs that demand a small spring deflection.
When should I use Polysorb disc springs?
When an application requires special disc spring characteristic curves which are flat and possible in metal only at a considerable expense (slotted designs)
For compensation of axial clearances and manufacturing tolerances
For vibration damping
For noise damping
When a non-magnetic material is required
For electrical and thermal insulation
When not to use polysorb disk springs?
When constant spring forces are necessary over a wide temperature range
When high spring forces are required
The spring deflection of the disk spring is relatively small. Therefore a number of disk springs are combined in practice. Alternatively layered disk springs enhance the spring deflection in proportion to the number, whereby the overall spring force is as large as the force of the individual disk spring. To increase the force, the disk springs can be layered in parallel as a spring packet.
Polysorb disk springs are resistant to many chemicals.
iglidur® A500 has a higher resistance than iglidur® J.

The low humidity absorption allows them to be used in wet or humid environment.
Polysorb® disk springs absorb humidity. Thereby their mechanical properties alter. In the worst application that can be thought of - extremely long application in water - Polysorb® disk springs still exhibit high spring force.

Increased temperatures lead to the decline of stiffening in polymers. Polysorb® disk springs exhibit a maximum spring force of 8 N even at the maximum permitted temperature of 80° C. See figure for relationship of spring force to ambient temperature.
