Aluminium 1000 Series

The 1000 series alloys are the purest forms of aluminium, resistant to chemical attack and weathering, easily worked and welded, but have the lowest strength of the aliminium grades. The 1000 series are often used in chemical processing equipment and other applications where material purity is important. 1000 series aluminium[…]

Stainless Steel – Grade 303

303 stainless steel is the most machinable among the austenitic grades of stainless steel. 303 stainless steel owes its good machinability to the addition of Sulphur in the alloy. It should be noted that the Sulphur also reduces the corrosion resistance of the steel and slightly reduces its toughness. However.[…]
