High Carbon Steel

Is used for high strength applications including springs.

Nickel Alloy

Is used for a wide variety of applications including highly corrosive environments, electrical resistance, high temperatures, thermocouples and heating elements.

Aluminum Alloy

Is used for lightweight, low-density electrical conductors.

Brass Plated Steel

Is primarily used for high strength where good rubber adhesion is required.

Copper Clad Steel

Is used for high strength conductive requirements.

Titanium Alloy

Is used for light strength, specific corrosion resistance and biocompatibility applications.
