Stainless Steel

Spring Steel (1095) High-carbon steel, one of the strongest and hardest types of steel available. It is ideal for precision applications with tight tolerances. Highly versatile, strong, and hard. The addition of chromium provides corrosion resistance. Creates some of the most durable shims on the market. Stainless steel is an alloy of iron that is resistant to rusting and corrosion. It contains at […]

Hot-Rolled Steel

Hot-Rolled Steel Easy to form and requires less processing. Ideal for applications where strength is key, but not the best when tight tolerances or surface finish are important. Hot rolled steel is steel that has undergone the rolling process at a temperature above its recrystallization temperature (usually 1700° F or greater). Compared to unprocessed steel, the […]


Copper is a chemical element with the symbol Cu (from Latin: cuprum) and atomic number 29. It is a soft, malleable, and ductile metal with very high thermal and electrical conductivity. A freshly exposed surface of pure copper has a pinkish-orange color. Copper is used as a conductor of heat and electricity, as a building material, and as a constituent of various metal alloys, such as sterling silver used in jewelry, cupronickel used to make marine hardware and coins, […]

Cold-Rolled Steel

Cold-Rolled Steel Processed further than hot-rolled steel. The surface is typically smooth. Ideal for applications where tolerances are important, or when the surface finish is a factor.  angle of surface finishes. The term Cold Rolled is mistakenly used on all products, when actually the product name refers to the rolling of flat rolled sheet and […]


Brass is an alloy of copper (Cu) and zinc (Zn), in proportions which can be varied to achieve varying mechanical, electrical, and chemical properties.[1] It is a substitutional alloy: atoms of the two constituents may replace each other within the same crystal structure. Brass is similar to bronze, another alloy containing copper that uses tin instead of zinc.[2] Both bronze and brass also may include small proportions […]


Aluminium (aluminum in American and Canadian English) is a chemical element with the symbol Al and atomic number 13. Aluminium has a density lower than those of other common metals, at approximately one third that of steel. It has a great affinity towards oxygen, and forms a protective layer of oxide on the surface when exposed to air. Aluminium visually resembles silver, both in its color and in its great ability to reflect light. […]
