We have a broad knowledge and years of experience in supporting the aerospace & defence industry. We supply a vast range of commercial and defence grade materials, including aluminium, steel and titanium, available in every shape and size.
One of the core factors to consider when choosing a metal for a specific project is its ductility. Determining the ductility of metal is more crucial when the metal in question is going to be used in high tension applications.
After the quenching process, steel becomes hard and brittle. To toughen up steel and make it strong again, steel is taken through tempering, which further hardens and increases the toughness of the material.
Welding aluminium is unique, compared to welding other common materials like steel, because of its chemistry and tendency to crack. To successfully weld aluminium, you need to follow procedures and special considerations.
