In the most challenging conditions, especially heavy industrial environments, where heat, moisture, and corrosion are present, stainless steel is a preferable material choice to overcoming these obstacles. One of the most commonly used alloys, steel produces greater strength and durability without increasing weight to the product. Stainless steel is everlasting and features excellent resistance against corrosion and many other chemical solvents.
Aluminum has become a popular material choice in many industries due to its inherent properties. Suitable for the harshest environments and most rigorous conditions, aluminum is lightweight, durable to corrosion, high temperatures and chemicals and tend to be more economically feasible compared to other metals.
Exquisite in appearance, yet resilient in performance, brass delivers upon the stringent qualifications for industrial and decorative applications. Brass is a preferred metal of choice for being robust, malleable, and includes a natural gold color, ideal for a product incorporating brass features. The material is tarnish resistant and can flourish in the most extreme indoor and outdoor environments.
Strong and durable, polycarbonate (PC) is a naturally transparent amorphous thermoplastic, meaning the raw material incorporates impact resistance properties (shatter-resistant). With the same transparency as glass, it’s commonly used in applications requiring a durable, yet see-through material as polycarbonate allows for the internal transmission of light. This includes plastic lenses in eyewear, in medical devices, automotive components, protective gear, greenhouses, digital disks, and exterior lighting fixtures. Polycarbonate is made up of several different monomer types in combination with one another and when set to a high enough temperature, the material can liquefy.
Versatile to be manufactured in a variety of colors, both transparent and solid, vinyl is a malleable plastic material that’s very environmentally friendly and has an expansive lifespan. In comparison to materials featuring similar characteristics, vinyl requires minimal natural resources to produce, utilizes much lesser energy for manufacture and releases lower emissions into the environment. Thus, making the material highly suitable in the production of many different solutions.
Extremely durable and of high-resolution quality, Metalphoto is a specialized type of photosensitive anodized aluminum that is crisp and clear and produced in high quantities with variable images. Metalphoto is the specified material for an array of commercial, government and military standards and requirements, including Military Standard (MIL-P-15024) for the Department of Defense UID data matrix bar code applications.
