The benefits of working with Stainless Steel are evident in its Corrosive Resistant properties. Containing a minimum of 10.5% Chromium will allow the development of other useful characteristics such as the addition of mechanical strength, hardness and toughness. We are also able to change the working characteristics to suite formability, machinability and weldability.
“We understand the differing behaviors during manufacturing and fabrication and its effects on chemical composition. With this in mind we can advise the correct methods to achieving the exact design and surface finish requirements. In essence selecting the most appropriate steel grade, strategy and surface finish is vital to the successful application of stainless steel.”
A remarkable strength to weight ratio allows an extensive set of applications for Aluminum. Commonly accepted as tough, lightweight and corrosive resistant, the material draws advantage as being easily formable and recyclable. Being a good reflector of both visible light and heat makes it ideal for light fittings, architectural installations and bespoke metalwork.
The oldest metal used by man. Copper is acknowledged as tough, ductile and malleable. Our in house teams are able to polish and buff copper to any desired texture and luster. Control Fabrications ensures minimum impurities through our stringent quality assurance testing to deliver nothing but the best finishes and aesthetic effects in the field.
Brass encompasses the variable ranges of Copper-Zinc alloys. With the manipulation of such properties we can add strength, corrosive resistance and hardness. Brass is commonly used for decorative purposes primarily due to its resemblance to gold. Our in house teams are able to create exact shades and colors based on our client needs and desires.
As the most commonly available form of steel, mild steel is championed as a superior versatile, cost-effective and easily fabricated material. It is set apart from other forms of steel because it contains a relatively low amount of carbon, which maintains the strength but makes it more ductile and easy to work.
Bronze fuses copper with a medley of additional ingredients to create an alloy notably sturdier than copper alone. Characterized by its dull-gold color the main differentiation can be seen in the faint rings that embody its surface. Used in the construction of sculptures, bushings, bearings and medals we would champion the use of this material for its corrosive resistant properties.
