Carbon steel is a type of steel that is primarily made of carbon, with other elements such as manganese, phosphorus, and sulfur added in small amounts to improve its properties. Carbon steel is widely used in various industries due to its strength, durability, and versatility. There are three main types of carbon steel based on their carbon content - low carbon steel, medium carbon steel, and high carbon steel. Each type of carbon steel has different properties, making it suitable for specific applications.
Alloy steel is a type of steel that is mixed with other elements to enhance its properties. These elements can be added in varying amounts to create a variety of alloy steel grades with different characteristics suitable for different applications. Some of the Alloy Steel we supply includes; Chromium, Chrome Vanadium, Molybdenum, Cr-Mo, Ni-Cr-Mo, Ni-Mo, Nickel Chromium, Silicon Manganese Steel, and Tool Steel.
When it comes to fasteners, the material they're made of is just as important as their size and shape. That's why we offer a wide range of stainless steel fasteners to suit your specific needs. Stainless steel is a corrosion-resistant and durable material that can withstand a wide range of environmental conditions. Click the link to take a closer look at some of the types of stainless steel we offer including; Austenitic Stainless Steel, Ferritic Steel, Martensitic Stainless Steel, Precipitation Hardening, Duplex Steel, Super Duplex Steel, High Moly Stainless Steel
Super alloys are a group of high-performance alloys with excellent mechanical strength, resistance to high temperatures, and corrosion resistance. These materials are typically used in extreme environments such as aerospace, gas turbine engines, and chemical processing. Some of the most commonly used super alloys include; Stellite, Waspalloy, Maraging, R Alloys, S Alloys, I Alloys, N Alloys. Super alloys are high-performance materials that offer exceptional mechanical strength, high-temperature resistance, and corrosion resistance. The specific alloy chosen for a given application will depend on the requirements of the application, such as temperature range, corrosion resistance, and mechanical strength.
Non Ferrous Metal & Alloys
Non-ferrous metals and alloys are widely used in various industries and applications due to their unique properties. These materials do not contain iron and are often preferred over ferrous metals due to their corrosion resistance, light weight, and excellent conductivity. Here are some common non-ferrous metals and alloys, along with their properties and applications: Titanium, Titanium Alloy, Copper, Copper Alloys, Tantalum, Zirconium, Aluminium, Nickel, Nickel Alloys, Molybdenum. Non-ferrous metals and alloys offer a range of unique properties that make them valuable in various industries and applications. These materials are highly valued for their corrosion resistance, light weight, and excellent conductivity. Titanium, copper, tantalum, zirconium, aluminum, nickel, and molybdenum, along with their respective alloys, are some of the most widely used non-ferrous metals in different fields. By understanding their unique properties and applications, manufacturers and engineers can select the most appropriate materials to meet their needs.
High Performance Nickel Alloys
High-performance nickel alloys are widely used in various industries due to their exceptional mechanical, thermal, and corrosion-resistant properties. These alloys are composed primarily of nickel, with additional elements like chromium, iron, copper, molybdenum, titanium, aluminum, and carbon, to enhance their properties. Here are some of the most commonly used high-performance nickel alloys: Inconel, Monel, Hastelloy, Incoloy, Nimonic. High-performance nickel alloys are also used in various other applications such as heat exchangers, nuclear reactors, and medical devices. These alloys offer high strength, durability, and corrosion resistance, making them a valuable material for modern industries.
Copper Alloys are a group of alloys made primarily of copper, with other elements added to enhance the mechanical, electrical, and corrosion resistance properties. Here are the most commonly used copper alloys along with their properties and applications: Chromium Copper, Copper Nickel, Beryllium Copper, Brass, Aluminium Bronze, Nickel Aluminium Bronze, Silicon Aluminium Bronze, Phosphor Bronze, Silicon Bronze, Manganese Bronze, Tin Bronze Copper alloys have a wide range of properties and applications, and their use depends on the specific requirements of the application. By adding different elements to copper, such as nickel, aluminum, silicon, phosphorus, or tin, the resulting alloys can achieve various combinations of mechanical, electrical, and corrosion resistance properties, making them suitable for different industries and applications.
