Get the low-down on all things metal. From choosing the right metal grade to the differences between metal types, our blog has you covered.
Below are our extended holiday hours:
Diamond plate is a metal plate product that has a raised diamond-like pattern on the surface.
If you ask someone “is stainless steel magnetic?” you will likely get a variety of responses.
Tempering is a heat treatment process that alters the mechanical properties (typically ductility and hardness) and relieves internal stresses of a steel.
While the chemical composition of a metal determines much of the mechanical properties, many metals can have their mechanical properties altered through heat treatment.
Galvanising is a coating process that protects an underlying steel from rust using a protective layer of zinc.
What Is Ductility?
Ductility is the ability of a metal to deform without fracturing.
Rust compromises the mechanical characteristics of metal, alters the chemical properties, and is (usually) not considered aesthetically pleasing.
