Our current offerings are in 18 gauge (.048) cold rolled steel and 18 gauge brass (.040). Aluminum is in testing right now, and stainless steel will be next.
|A-366/1008 Commercial Quality Cold Rolled Steel (CRS)|
Cold rolling occurs with the metal below its recrystallization temperature (usually at room temperature), which increases the strength via strain hardening up to 20%. It also improves the surface finish and holds tighter tolerances. Commonly cold-rolled products include sheets, strips, bars, and rods; these products are usually smaller than the same products that are hot rolled. Because of the smaller size of the workpieces and their greater strength, as compared to hot rolled stock, four-high or cluster mills are used.
|260 series, H02 1/2 hard brass|
260 brass, also known as yellow brass or cartridge brass, is corrosion resistant and has high formability. Meets ASTM B19 and ASTM B36 specifications. H02 temper has been cold worked to a 1/2 hard temper
Type 5052 aluminum contains 97.25% Al, 2.5%Mg, and 0.25%Cr, and its density is 2.68 g/cm3 (0.0968 lb/in3). Generally, 5052 aluminum alloy is stronger than other popular alloys such as 3003 aluminum and also has improved corrosion resistance due to the absence of copper in its composition.
|AISI 304 (S30400) Stainless Steel|
Grade 304 stainless steel is generally regarded as the most common austenitic stainless steel. It contains high nickel content that is typically between 8 and 10.5 percent by weight and a high amount of chromium at approximately 18 to 20 percent by weight. Other major alloying elements include manganese, silicon, and carbon. The remainder of the chemical composition is primarily iron.
The high amounts of chromium and nickel give 304 stainless steel excellent corrosion resistance.
