When having parts manufactured for heavy machinery and equipment, it's critical to choose the right material. Making the right choice depends on your budget, the desired application, the required durability, and a few other factors. Here's what you need to know about the five most...

When hard materials come in contact with one another over time, damage and wear known as abrasion will occur. In some cases, abrasion is intentional. Processes like blasting, sanding, and grinding will create an abrasion effect. When unintentional, however, abrasion can cause machine and building components...

Titanium is the one of the closest things to a miracle metal found on earth. This silvery gray metal is stronger than steel (if you consider the strength-to-weight ratio). It resists corrosion and rust more effectively than platinum, which is a noble metal. Titanium is...

Gleaming, gorgeous metals (sometimes referred to as “exotic” metals), can be a great choice for special construction projects. Exotic metals are a class of metals that are sustainable as well as durable and high-performance. These metals include stainless steel, titanium, zinc alloy, copper, and nickel based alloys and terne coated stainless steel. These metals are usually used in construction applications that include trim elements (both exterior and exterior) roofing, and the creation of wall panels.

One of the most important qualities of a metal is its strength. The ways in which metals are used in industries like construction and auto manufacturing make the inherent strength of certain metals of huge importance. Metal alloys, which are the product of a combination of metals, have greater strength than metals in original form.
