Technology:

The performance of the shock absorber can be determined from the maximum force, energy per cycle and maximum cycles per minute. The maximum force, also called the P1 force, is the greatest rated force that the shock absorber can supply. The energy per cycle is the amount of energy that the component can absorb, and will also depend on the stroke length. The maximum cycles per minute is a measure of how quickly the shock absorber can return to its unstretched length. Shock absorbers may be made from aluminum, steel and stainless steel, or thermoplastic. Steel is used when strength is required. The other materials provide varying balance between strength and corrosion resistance. Additionally, the rods can be treated with chrome to provide corrosion resistance and increase surface hardness. Nitride will increase the hardness by introducing nitrogen into the outer surface of the rod. There are also a number of important shock absorber features to consider. Adjustable shock absorbers allow the stiffness of the response to be monitored and fine-tuned.
