It is known as aviation aluminum alloy: excellent joining characteristics, good acceptance of applied coatings. It combines relatively high strength, superior workability, and high resistance to corrosion.
It is the most common alloy used for aluminum extrusion. It allows complex shapes to be formed with very smooth surfaces fit for anodizing and so is famous for visible architectural applications such as window frames, door frames, roofs, and sign frames
It is medium strength alloy with excellent corrosion resistance which has the highest strength of the 6000 series alloys. Alloy 6082 is known as a structural alloy.
It is an aluminum alloy, with zinc as the primary alloying element. It is durable, with a strength comparable to many steel alloys, and has excellent fatigue strength and average machinability.
It retains exceptional strength after welding. It has the highest strength of the non-heat treatable alloys but is not recommended for use in temperatures over 65°C.
With copper as the primary alloying element, it is used in applications requiring high strength to weight ratio, as well as excellent fatigue resistance. It is weldable only through friction welding and has average machinability.
The most common stainless steel. The steel contains both chromium (between 18–20%) and nickel (between 8–10.5%) metals as the main non-iron constituents. It is less electrically and thermally conductive than carbon steel and is essentially non-magnetic. It has a higher corrosion resistance than regular steel.
Austenitic stainless steel specifically designed to exhibit improved machinability.
Standard molybdenum-bearing grade, second in importance to 304 amongst the austenitic stainless steels. The molybdenum gives 316 better overall corrosion resistant properties than Grade 304, notably higher resistance to pitting and crevice corrosion in chloride environments
Free machining grade that is the most commonly available grade around the world. Although its mechanical properties are not very unique, it still can be easily formed, machined, welded, and fabricated.
Excellent weldability and produces a uniform and harder case, and it is considered as the best steel for carburized parts.
It is characterized by good weldability, good machinability, and high strength and impact pro
Excellent welding properties and is suitable for grinding, punching, tapping, drilling, and machining processes
It is known for its malleability and ductility, heat conductivity, and electrical conductivity.
The most commonly used brass alloy, with its superior machinability, thread rolling and knurling characteristics.
In industrial applications, owing to its low friction, PTFE is used for plain bearings, gears, slide plates, seals, gaskets, bushings, and more applications with sliding action of parts, where it outperforms acetal and nylon.
It is a thermoplastic with excellent mechanical and chemical resistance properties that are retained to high temperatures.
Known for its large strength-to-density ratio and is resistant to many different solvents and has a wide variety of applications.
A tough, lightweight material that is durable, reasonably rigid and versatile, and is resistant to acids and bases
Has impact resistance, structural strength and stiffness, chemical resistance, excellent high and low-temperature performance, great electrical insulation properties and easy to paint/glue
Retains its shape after a lot of torsion, bending, and .flexing. This property is especially valuable for making living hinges
It is strong, tough, and some grades are optically transparen.t
Tough, possessing high tensile strength, as well as elasticity. It is wrinkleproof and highly resistant to abrasion and chemicals such as acids and alkalis.
