Cold wrap spring is made of steel wires. These are up to 20 mm diameter, precisely so that the cold manufacturing process can be done properly. Instead, hot wrapping can be done on 94 mm bars. For a process or the other, compliance to set standards is essential to ensure that spring does not endanger its user.
