metals

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.
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...
When planning your next plumbing project, you need to evaluate the various types of pipe for the job. Although stainless steel and brass tubing could...
Although there are several different definitions of strength, including hardness, yield strength, and compressive strength, this article focuses mainly on tensile strength, which is the...
Aluminum sheet and aluminum plate are both widely used and respected due to the metal’s light-weight strength, along with high corrosion resistance. But what...
When completing a project with corrugated sheet should you go with a galvanized or Galvalume metal roof?
What is the importance of design considerations for applications susceptible to metal fatigue? Let’s talk about the causes, forms, and how to determine metal fatigue strength.
Melting Point of Metals
Knowing the melting points of different metals is important for fabricators and welders. Metals melt gradually, as the metal absorbs...
Both hot rolled steel and cold rolled steel start out in essentially the same way and both can have the same grades and specifications. But...
Like brass, bronze is an alloy primarily made of copper. But where brass combines copper with zinc, bronze is made of copper and...
Weldability is everything. Metals with a high weldability are easier to weld and retain a higher weld quality than other metals, so it’s important to...
