合金

We work with a variety of alloys that have uses in numerous applications and industries. If you don't see the alloy you need for your application, reach out to your Sales Representative.

  • Nitinol unique superelastic and shape memory properties
  • Niclal alloy
  • Cupron® alloy
  • Evanohm® alloy
  • Haynes® Waspaloy alloy excellent strength at elevated temperatures
  • L-605 good oxidation and corrosion resistance as well as high strength in elevated temperatures
  • Hastelloy® X excellent oxidation resistance and strength at elevated temperatures
  • Rene 41 excellent strength and oxidation resistance at elevated temperatures and can be annealed for greater ductility
  • Magnesium
  • Commercially pure titanium, grades 1-4 grade 1 has the highest corrosion resistance, formability, and lowest strength, whereas grade 4 offers the highest strength with moderate formability
  • Nickel 205
  • Nickel 212
  • Nilo® 36
  • Nilo® 42
  • Nilo® 52
  • Nilo® K
  • Inconel® alloy 600 good corrosion resistance at elevated temperatures
  • Inconel® alloy 601
  • Inconel® alloy 625 high strength without additional heat treatment
  • Inconel® alloy 718 high strength at elevated temperatures
  • Inconel® alloy X-750 high strength and corrosion resistance at elevated temperatures
  • 304V stainless steel vacuum art remelted, 304V has more uniform chemistry with less tensile strength than 302
  • 302 stainless steel identical to 304V in chemical composition except for higher carbon content, with higher tensile strength than 304V produced using an electric-arc melt process, resulting in a high quality austenitic stainless steel
  • 316LVM stainless steel uniform chemistry and improved microcleanliness and can be processed to improve ductility or corrosion resistance
