MATERIALS
(We will gladly entertain inquiries for products made from other metals)

Titanium
Titanium is an inert metal alloy that is usually combined with aluminum, steel, manganese and molybdenum. A titanium alloy is almost as strong as steel but forty five percent lighter. Titanium fasteners are used in the aircraft industry in a great quantity because they reduce the weight of the aircraft and are corrosion resistant.

Stainless Steel (Austenitic Stainless)
Austenitic stainless steels are non-magnetic, non heat-treatable steels that are strengthened through cold working. These steels have excellent corrosion with good mechanical properties over a wide range of temperatures.

Stainless Steel (Martensitic Stainless)
Martensitic grade steel is magnetic and can be heat-treated for elevated strength (with the exception of 430). It is not as corrosive resistant as the austenitic grades, but it has much greater tensile and yield strengths.

Nickel Alloy
Nickel Alloy is commonly used in applications where it is exposed to harsh environments and high temperatures. This tremendously durable material is used to manufacture fasteners for use in environments that require corrosion and heat resistance, such as aircraft engines and stream turbine power plants.

High Temperature Stainless Alloy
Also used for its durability and resistance to heat and corrosion, High Temperature Stainless Alloy is often found in machine components where strength and resistance to high temperature oxidation is necessary.

Low Carbon Steel (Grade 2)
A common type of carbon steel, this material contains less that 0.3% carbon. Low Carbon Steel (Grade 2) is often found in low-carbon steel fasteners. It can be case hardened for additional strength.

Medium Carbon Steel (Grade 5)
Medium Carbon Steel (Grade 5) has a good balance of strength and ductility. Normally used in large parts, machined components and forgings, this material avails a high level of hardness and wear resistance. Grade 5 steel is through hardened for elevated tensile to yield strength.

Alloy Steel (Grade 8)
More responsive to heat and mechanical treatment than Carbon steel, Alloy steel is versatile in that it can use unique deoxidization or melting processes to be formatted for specific applications.

Aluminum
Aluminum is one third as dense as iron and can sometimes be as strong as mild steel. This material is less resistant to corrosion than other materials.

Brass
Often used in applications where low friction is required, Brass can be found in such parts as valves, ammunition, bearings, lock and gears, as well as in plumbing and electrical applications.
