Engineering Steel is a steel that has had small amounts of one or more alloying elements (other than carbon) such as such as manganese, silicon, nickel, titanium, copper, chromium and aluminum added. This produces specific properties that are not found in regular carbon steel.
Engineering Steels are workhorses of industry because of their economical cost, wide availability, ease of processing, and good mechanical properties. Alloy steels are generally more responsive to heat and mechanical treatments than carbon steels.
Aluminium Sheet is a thin, flat piece of aluminium with many applications.
It is measured by its thickness (gauge).
Aluminium Sheet is commonly used in the transportation, food and aerospace industry due to its light weight and resistance to corrosion.
Typical Applications: Chemical Process Plant Equipment, Food Industry Containers, Pyrotechnic Powder, Architectural Flashings, Lamp Reflectors, Cable Sheathing
Typical Applications: Shipbuilding, Rail Cars, Vehicle Bodies, Tip Truck Bodies, Mine Skips and Cages, Pressure Vessels.
Typical Applications: Highly Stressed Applications such as Trusses, Bridges, Cranes, Transport Applications, Ore Skips, Beer Barrels, Milk Churns
