Capabilities
           
   Your choices are...         
   Annealing / Heat Treating       Annealing is a heating and cooling operation, usually with a slow cooling cycle. Annealing may be used to remove stresses, induce softness, and alter ductility, toughness, electrical, magnetic, or other properties. 
   Buffing / Polishing       Polishing, buffing, and belting processes are metal smoothing operations that change the surface appearance of a metal. These operations can be for aesthetic and/or functional purposes. 
   Cut to Length       Companies can cut roll-formed materials to customer-specified lengths. 
   End Forming       Companies produce forms on the ends of tubes. Examples include chamfers, flanges, end reduction, end expansion, doming or rounding, beading, and flaring. 
   End Flattening       Companies either flatten or bend and flatten the ends of tubes.  Many flattening variations can be obtained. 
   Machining       Companies have machining capabilities. Machining is the removal of material through milling, turning, drilling, and other processes. 
   Painting / Powder Coating       Companies apply paint to provide a protective and/or decorative coating. Powder coating is a finishing technology in which dry paint particles are electrostatically charged and applied to a smooth surface. Electrostatic attraction holds powder particles on the part surface until heat is added to flow the powder together and cure it. Parts must be electrically conductive. Although powder coating is most widely used on metal parts, recent technological developments have broadened the type of substrates to include glass, special plastics and wood. 
   Plating / Coating       Companies apply plating or coating to the surface of tubes and pipes. Examples of plating and coating options include anodizing, galvanizing, zinc plating, copper plating, and nickel plating. 
   Slotting & Notching       Companies produce slots or notches in tubes and pipes. 
   Piercing & Punching       Companies punch or pierce holes in tubes. The two main styles are dimple hole punching and mandrel hole punching. In dimple punching, a dimple is created in the tube during the punching operation. In mandrel punching, a mandrel is placed in the tube during punching to prevent the diameter geometry from being altered. 
   Swaging       Swaging forms tubes through a rapid series of hammer blows.  It can be used to point, size, reduce, shape, taper, bond or form metal parts through hot or cold processes. Swaging is economical, does produce any chips, improves grain structure and produces a fine finish. 
   Telescopic Tube       Companies produce telescoping tubes, usually with a spring locking pin or other locking mechanism. 
   Threading       Companies can produce an array of threading options. 
   Welding / Brazing       Companies perform welding or brazing operations.

Materials
           
   Your choices are...         
   ABS       Acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS) is a hard, rigid, thermoplastic polymer. It provides good chemical and creep resistance, as well as dimensional stability. ABS is used in many industries and in a wide array of applications. It is generally inexpensive, but prone to crack when under stress. Common trade names include Cycolac (GE Plastics), Lustran (Bayer) and Novodur (Bayer). 
   Aluminum       Aluminum is a bluish, silver-white, malleable, ductile, light-weight, trivalent metallic element that provides good electrical and thermal conductivity, high reflectivity, and resistance to oxidation. 
   Carbon / Graphite       Carbon or graphite has an extremely high melting point and is resistant to many molten non-ferrous metals, ceramics and salts. Carbon pipe is used in chemical manufacturing, in heat treating furnaces, in non-ferrous metal production and by the ceramic industries. 
   Ceramic / Ceramic-lined       Ceramic materials are made of metal oxides, carbides, nitrides or combinations of these compounds. Typically, ceramics are formed from powders that are consolidated in a high temperature firing process. Most ceramics resist high temperatures and chemicals, but have low electrical and thermal conductivity. 
   Clay / Vitrified Clay       Vitrified clay is composed of crushed and blended clays that are fired at a succession of temperatures to provide excellent strength and a glossy finish. General characteristics include resistance to internal and external chemical corrosion, abrasion, and heat. Vitrified clay is used in many industrial applications, most notably as tile or piping. 
   Concrete       Concrete is a composite of cement, sand, and aggregate; frequently, other additives are used to enhance qualities such as strength or water resistance. Concrete pipe is used for large infrastructure applications due to its strength and durability. 
   Copper / Copper Alloys       Copper and copper alloys are non-ferrous metals with excellent electrical and thermal conductivity as well as good corrosion resistance, ductility and strength. Copper alloys are relatively easy to fabricate by forming, casting, or machining. Pure copper is more difficult to weld, cast, or machine. Brass, tin bronze, leaded brass, beryllium copper, and zirconium copper are examples of copper alloys. Copper is useful as an alloying element in aluminum alloys and powder metal based iron alloys.  Copper is a versatile metal with applications in many industrial and commercial segments. Copper's high electrical conductivity (100% IACS) makes it extremely useful in electrical and electronic applications. 
   CPVC       Chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (CPVC) is a common, versatile pipe material. It has many of the same advantages and uses as PVC, but typically carries higher temperature ratings. 
   EPDM       Ethylene propylene (EPDM) offers good resistance to sunlight, weathering and ozone. It has poor resistance to petroleum oils and fuel, but good heat and compression set resistance. EPDM's suggested operating temperature is - 70° to 275° F. Trade names include Nordel® (Dupont Dow Elastomers), Vistalon® (Exxon Mobil Chemical), Epsyn® (DSM Elastomers), Royalene® (Uniroyal Chemical), and Epcar® (B.F. Goodrich). 
   Fiberglass / Composite       Fiberglass reinforced plastics are the largest class of composites used in pipe manufacturing. For chemical or structural applications, composites used in pipe or tube forming include graphite or aramid fiber reinforced plastics or aluminum-plastic composites. 
   PFA Fluororesin       PFA (perfluoroalkoxy) fluororesin is used in applications with temperature requirements of 500°F (250°C). PFA exhibits very good chemical resistance and dielectric properties. 
   Glass / Glass-lined       Glass properties include smoothness, nonconductivity, relative inertness, and resistance to acids and other corrosive media.  Its chemical resistance makes it suitable for many chemical processing applications. 
   Iron (Gray / Cast)       The term "cast iron" refers not to a single material, but to a family of materials whose major constituent is iron, with varying amounts of carbon and silicon. Gray cast iron incorporates the graphite form of carbon in a flaky structure within the iron. Cast iron has been widely used in pipe and fittings for hundreds of years in water and wastewater applications, owing to its durability and excellent corrosion resistance. 
   Iron (Ductile)       Ductile iron is a form of cast iron developed in the 1940s that incorporates significant casting refinements, additional metallurgical processes, and superior quality control.  Heat treatment after casting changes the graphite into spheroidal shapes, giving ductile iron greater elongation, impact strength, and toughness than its predecessor, gray cast iron; in fact, the properties of ductile iron resemble those of steel more closely than traditional gray cast iron. Ductile iron retains the machinability of gray iron, and its high corrosion resistance is often enhanced with polyethylene encasement.  Ductile iron is also called "Nodular Iron" or "S.G. Iron". 
   Lead       Lead pipe is used in chemical, nuclear, and other specialized applications. Lead is noted for its durability, versatile formability, economy, and ability to deform plastically, thereby avoiding catastrophic failure. Environmental regulations govern the use of lead pipe in some water supply applications.  
   Neoprene / Rubber / Elastomer       Several elastomeric products can be used in pipe fabrication. The most widely used product is Neoprene, a synthetic rubber that resists degradation from sun, ozone, and weather. It performs well in contact with oils and many chemicals. Neoprene remains useful over a wide temperature range, displays outstanding physical toughness, and resists burning inherently better than exclusively hydrocarbon rubbers. Neoprene also offers resistance to damage caused by flexing and twisting. Its suggested operating temperature is -45° to 230° F. Neoprene was originally engineered by DuPont Dow. 
   Nylon / Polyamide       Nylon comprises several grades of polyamides and is a widely used, general-purpose material. Nylon is tough, resistant to gasoline and most oils, and has good pressure ratings. 
   Polyethylene (PE)       Polyethylene (PE) is a semi-crystalline (typically around 50%), whitish, semi-opaque commodity thermoplastic that is soft, flexible and tough - even at low temperatures - with outstanding electrical properties but poor temperature resistance. It has very good chemical resistance, but is prone to cracking from environmental stress. It has poor ultraviolet (UV) resistance (unless modified) and poor barrier properties, except to water. 
   Polypropylene (PP)       Polypropylene (PP) is a thermoplastic material with excellent cold flow, bi-axial strength, and yield elongation properties. It is similar to PVC but can be used in exposed applications because of its resistance to UV, weathering, and ozone. 
   PTFE / PTFE-lined       Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is an insoluble compound that exhibits a high degree of chemical resistance and a low coefficient of friction. It is sometimes marketed in proprietary classes of materials such as Teflon®, a registered trademark of DuPont. This selection includes both pipes that use PTFE as the primary material and pipes that are lined with PTFE. 
   PVC       Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is a widely used material that has good flexibility, a smooth surface, and nontoxic qualities. Some grades are used in food and chemical processes due to the inert nature of PVC. 
   Steel - Carbon & Alloy       This selection includes general-purpose carbon steel and mild steel or steel alloys that contain chrome, nickel, molybdenum, vanadium or other elements to alter hardenability characteristics, toughness, hardness, corrosion resistance, and/or strength. Typically, "black pipe" is made of carbon steel. 
   Steel - Stainless       Stainless steel is chemical and corrosion resistant and has relatively high pressure ratings. This selection includes all grades of stainless steel. 
   Titanium       Commercially pure (CP) titanium piping provides excellent corrosion resistance and is an important choice for some chemical processing applications. Typically, CP titanium provides better corrosion resistance and formability, but lower strength than alpha-beta titanium alloys such as Ti-6Al-4V. 
   Zirconium       Zirconium is a refractory metal used in nuclear power generation and chemical processing applications due to its outstanding corrosion resistance. Zirconium’s low neutron absorption cross-section makes the metal a good choice for components and fuel supports (tubes) in nuclear reactors. 
   Other       Other unlisted, proprietary or specialized material.
