When you have an applications question concerning temperature, corrosion, or abrasion, our staff metallurgist is here to help. With so many alloys on the market, it is possible to find an entirely new solution to an old problem. Any time you have a system or unit that needs to be replaced more than once every three years, chances are we can help you select an alloy that could improve the life cycle of your unit. No one wants to make a decision about a costly new alloy on an intuitive basis. Some metals that work well can be one, two, or three times more expensive than the product you are currently using. To justify a higher “up-front” cost, you need to be sure that the life expectancy of your unit is improved by a greater factor than the increased metal cost. Our highly trained metallurgist can help you arrive at an intelligent decision that is supported by statistics. If your primary business is not metals and metallurgy, contact us for professional assistance.
