Metal Stamping Materials


Stainless Steel:

Stamping 301 Stainless Steel Moderately high tensile strength and corrosion resistance. Available in hard, half hard and full hard.
Stamping 304 Stainless Steel The workhorse of the 300 SS series, where moderate tensile properties and corrosion resistance are required.
Stamping 316 & 316L Stainless Steel Modification of the basic 300 SS series. Added molybdenum improves strength and corrosion resistance. Used for pharmaceutical, food processing and marine environments.
Stamping 321 & 347 Stainless Steel Variations of the basic 18-8 composition. Stabilized by alloy addition to improve weldability and high-temperature service.
Stamping 17-7PH Stainless Steel Heat-treatable stainless steel with forming and drawing characteristics of 304. May be hardened up to 200 thousand tensile strength after cold forming.

 

Aluminum:

Aluminum Alloy Common Applications
Stamping 1100 Aluminum Drawn & spun parts, chemical equipment and anodized parts
Stamping 2024 Aluminum & 7075 Aluminum Aircraft & screw machine components
Stamping 3003 Aluminum Hardware, furniture & cooking utensils
Stamping 5052 Aluminum Sheet metal ductwork
Stamping 6061 Aluminum Marine hardware, architectural structures & aerospace components
Stamping 6063 Aluminum Extruded architectural structures & pipes


Brass´╝Ü

An alloy of zinc and copper, brass is tarnish-resistant and commonly chosen for applications where aesthetics are an important consideration. Depending upon its zinc to copper ratio, brass varies in softness, corrosion resistance, surface regularity and chemical reactivity. Considered a soft alloy, it is most often used for applications requiring low friction levels and limited outdoor exposure.While 260 brass is most commonly used for metal stamping.

Copper:

Often used for electrical and thermal applications, copper has an attractive patina finish that is appealing for consumer sectors, as well.

 

Cold Rolled Steel:

Cold Rolled Steel is low carbon and is ideally suited for production of consumer products used in low stress applications. Must be plated for corrosion resistance.

Beryllium Copper:

Beryllium is ideally suited for connectors, electrical spring-contacts, springs aircraft engine parts, bearings, and cams. A combination of unusual properties includes; good conductivity, excellent hardness, high strength, unusual wear resistance and good corrosion resistance. Beryllium copper has the option to be age hardened after forming.

Galvanized Steel
(ASTM A527/A653) Galvanized Steel Sheets are intended for usewhere greater corrosion protection is required without painting. Galvanized Steel Sheets are easy to weld, form, and drill . With a typical protection life span of 20 years, Galvanized Steel Sheets are ideal for a wide range of outdoor applications, or for decorative interior design.

Cold Rolled Steel (CRS)
(ASTM A366) Cold Rolled Steel Sheets are rolled to a close thickness tolerance and possess a fine, smooth surface providing a excellent base for painting . CRS Steel Sheets are easy to weld, form, drill. Popular uses for CRS Steel Sheet include: automotive panels, tool boxes, hoppers, drip pans, fuel tanks, trailer siding & roofing, etc.

Inconel
Inconel 600,625,690,718,751,792
Part of a family of nickel-chromium-based super alloys, Inconel is suitable for extreme environments due to its strength and resistance to oxidation and corrosion.
