Stainless Steel
    The term stainless steel refers to those grades of steel that contain more than 10% chromium. It may or may not contain other alloying elements. Stainless steel maintains its strength at high temperatures, resists corrosion and is maintained easily. It is commonly used in products for the automotive and food processing industries as well as health and medical equipment.

    Galvanized Steel
    Galvanized is a term used to describe metals that are coated with zinc. The zinc provides high resistance to corrosion. Galvanized steel is commonly used in applications susch as trash cans, auto parts and wire fences. Although it is usually associated with the hot dipped process, the zinc can be apllied by electroplating.

    Cold Roll
    Cold rolled steels are steels that have been stregthened by pressure, rather than heat. Sheets of steel are pressed flat by rollers, making them thinner and longer and causing changes in the composition of the metals, increasing its strength and hardness.

    Copper
    Copper is one of the oldest metals used. It is used in a variety of different products, from hospital instruments to arcitechtural products. It is even used in some organic fertilizers.
    The lead coated copper is used for out door applications. The lead gives it better resistance to acid rain and wear.

    Aluminum
    There are many different alloys of aluminum available. If you are looking for a specific alloy, please call us.

    1100 is commercially pure aluminum. It has excellent corrosion resistance and workability. It is commonly used for air ducts, name plates, and decorative and architectural aplications. 1100 is non-heat treatable.

    5052 is alloyed with 2.5% magnesium for a higher tensile strength. It is used for aircraft fuel tanks, utensiles, fan blades, etc. 5052 is non-heat treatable

    6061 is alloyed with 1.0% magnesium and .6% silicon. It has a high tensile strength and is commonly used for engineering and structural applications, boats, furniture etc. 6061 is heat treatable.
