Thermal conductivity is the term that describes how quickly a material absorbs heat from areas of high temperature and moves it toward areas of lower...
Aluminum is one of the most versatile metals in existence. It provides a great strength-to-weight, enhanced aesthetics, and an exceptional cost value for nearly any project.
Rust is the name for the orange-brown flakes of iron oxide that form on the surface of any metal containing iron that is exposed to...
Every metal alloy has its own distinct melting point. The metal's melting temperature is the basis for the manufacturing processes each metal can withstand.
Copper metals are commonly used in industries worldwide to create unique products that demonstrate exceptional capabilities. For applications that require enhanced malleability, machinability, conductivity, copper alloy products deliver proven results.
Learn more about cold-rolled and hot-rolled steel, including the differences in strength, price & aesthetics, to establish an informed decision-making process.
Understandably, most people want to prevent their cars and power tools from rusting, but some steel objects gain character from a beautifully detailed rusty patina...
Depending on the project and application, magnetic and non-magnetic metals provide a host of beneficial advantages. Magnetic metals are commonly used in electronic products such as appliances, smartphones, and audio equipment requiring magnetic circuitry
Rust and corrosion can deteriorate, and ruin parts and components manufactured from iron-based metals. Corrosion resistant metals protect against rust.
In the world of metals, three particular types stand out for their unusual red coloring. Copper, brass and bronze are related, but each has different...
Aluminum sheet is any aluminum sheet metal thicker than foil but thinner than plate (sheet is under .249” thick, while plate metal is .250” and above.) Many do-it-yourself projects, such as metal fabrication, siding, or roofing, use aluminum sheet because
Learn about hot rolled steel, common hot rolled steel grades, and the applications that benefit from using hot rolled steel products. Common hot rolled steel grades include ASTM A3, 1018, 1011, ASTM A513, ASTM A786, and 1020/1025.
To answer the question of where metals come from, first we need to define the word, “metal.” Pure metals are basic elements of matter. There...
