Despite being a poor conductor of electricity, titanium has a resistance to corrosion and a high strength-to-weight ratio. It’s commonly used in the aerospace market, in art and architecture, in medical devices, and various everyday products. Yield strength refers to the metal’s ability to withstand permanent deformation or bending. It is the elastic limit of any given material, including metals.

Along with our range of material options, we off a selection of forms. Metal forms are the type or shape a piece of material is supplied in. The range of material forms allows for a more accurate starting material when working on a project. When added to expensive metals, alloys can be created to produce a cheaper alternative with many of the same properties as the original metal. The wide range of metals and the complexity of parts and components it can be used to produce, makes metal an ideal material for manufacturing. Materials such as wood, metal, and plastic have different properties that can affect the design and manufacture of goods and products.

As well as being premier stockholders of the more popular, we can also supply Inconel, Incoloy, Monel, Titanium, Hastelloy, Tungum, Chrome Molybdenum, Cupro Nickel, 17/4 and Aerospace Metals.
