Zinc Alloy

Continuous-cast alloy. Has good electrical conductivity and is highly resistant to corrosion. This alloy is readily treatable for painting, plating, and anodizing.

Stainless Steel 420

Contains more carbon than Stainless 410 to give it increased hardness and strength when heat treated. Offers mild corrosion resistance, high heat resistance, and improved strength.

Aluminum MIC-6

A cast aluminum plate often used for tooling and base plates.

Aluminum 7050

Preferred over 7075 aluminum for use in structural applications, 7050 is a high-strength material that resists fatigue and stress cracking. 7050 is nonmagnetic and heat treatable

Aluminum 5052

Corrosion resistant aluminum frequently used in sheet metal applications.

Aluminum 2024

Used when a high strength-to-weight ratio is required, such as for gears, shafts, and fasteners. It is nonmagnetic and heat treatable.

416 Stainless Steel

400 series stainless steels are the martensitic family and not as common as austenitic grades. Martensitic steels are extremely strong and tough due to higher carbon content, but more susceptible to corrosion in certain environments. They can be heat-treated to greatly increase their hardness and are magnetic.

410 Stainless Steel

400 series stainless steels are the martensitic family and not as common as austenitic grades. Martensitic steels are extremely strong and tough due to higher carbon content, but more susceptible to corrosion in certain environments. They can be heat-treated to greatly increase their hardness and are magnetic.
