    Question Metal spring in the atomizer

    Dont know where to ask this.. but I always wondered about how inert the metal spring is inside the atomizer in most fragrance bottles and decants.

    It is immersed in the liquid correct? If so, wouldn't continual immersion in the liquid will make the metal react w the fragrance, corroding the metal and tainting the liquid?

    I tried looking it up in Google try it. There's nothing on it. Ok thanks.

    I don't know the answer, but was thinking that perhaps some of the perfumers in the DIY forum might have some insight into this.

    Just check any of your samples\atomizers\bottle and you'll see, that springs are coated in plastic, that is a one piece with pipe, that pulls the juice to atomizer.
    So no corrosion will ever happen. It would be quite retarded for perfume producers to expose metal to the juice

    My sense is that the spring and small metal ball are both made of stainless steel, and are basically non-reactive.
