Stock materials such as wire rope, fabrics, stock extrusions, strip, bar or sheet materials.
Balls and sphere shapes are used in products that require a spherical component. Examples include bearings, ball screws, valves, flow meters, and gages. Balls and sphere shapes are made from materials such as glass, metals, plastics, and ceramics.
Ceramic balls are spherical, rolling elements that provide higher stiffness, lower thermal expansion, lighter weight, increased corrosion resistance, and higher electrical resistance than steel balls. They are made from a variety of ceramic materials.
Composite panels are composite sandwich structures that consist of multiple layers or skins, often bonded to or sandwiching a core material such as multilayer sheets, cored laminates, or industrial structural panels.
Expanded sheet materials are designed with patterns of diamond-shaped openings and are produced by slitting and stretching the sheet materials.
Industrial tapes are used for adhesive bonding, thread sealing, masking, packaging, wrapping, electrical insulation, and other specialized applications.
Link chain includes loop, welded, weldless, sash, jack, ball, beaded, plumbers, safety, and coil chains for lifting, securing, lashing, mooring, rigging, security, keeping, traction, actuation and other applications.
Mechanical control cables provide a push-pull or other action to mechanically actuate components. Mechanical control cables consist of mechanical cable with attached eyes, forks, studs, handles or other fittings.
Mesh consists of wires or fibers woven or knitted into a grid or screen pattern to create a semi-permeable barrier.
Metal balls are rolling, spherical elements that exhibit greater strength and toughness than plastic and ceramic balls. They have a sufficient hardness for many industrial ball applications, and most products are electrically conductive. Some steel, nickel, and cobalt balls can be magnetized. Metal balls made from certain alloys can also provide corrosion resistance and refractory resistance.
Shaped metal parts and metal stock. They are fabricated through various processes and available in many different forms and sizes.
Metallized and coated films have a coating or thin metal film for decorative or functional applications.
Netting is an open-meshed material used to protect, filter, or restrict. Netting products range from extremely fine fiber mesh to industrial-grade material netting.
Overlays, veneers and surfacing materials are bonded to a surface to impart a decorative finish or graphical pattern.
Paper and paperboard materials are available in rolls or sheets and are used for writing, printing, packaging, and many other applications. Categories include commercial paper, industrial paper, and paperboard.
Perforated sheet materials are used as screens in separators, walkways, sunscreens, ventilation, and decorative coverings. They are constructed by machining or punching holes in a piece of sheet metal or plastic.
Plastic and rubber balls are rolling, spherical elements that have low friction values and require little or no lubrication. They are lighter than metal balls and resistant corrosion and abrasion. Some plastic balls resist high temperatures, but others do not. Rubber balls are characterized by a high degree of flexibility and elasticity.
Shaped plastic parts and plastic stock. They are fabricated through various processes and available in many different forms and sizes.
Printed circuit materials have copper-clad surfaces for the fabrication of electronic and electrical circuitry on printed circuit boards (PCBs), printed wiring boards (PWB) and flexible circuits. They include materials for flexible film circuit and membrane switches, as well as rigid laminates for circuit boards
Release liners are paper or film materials with specialized non-stick coatings for adhesive tape, sealant, composite handling, dispensing and processing applications.
RF and microwave laminates are used as substrates for radio frequency (RF) and microwave communication systems and electronics. They are designed to meet the demanding performance standards for higher-frequency applications.
Screens consist of a surface with openings of specific sizes. They may be made in many ways, including perforating a sheet, weaving metal wire or synthetic fibers or electroforming. Among other uses, screens are commonly used to provide open but secure separation for a clean environment and flying objects, debris or insects.
Tarpaulins are used to provide cover and protection from exposure to rain, sunlight, and other environmental conditions.
Tire protection chains are used to reduce the danger of tire puncture from sharp rocks, heat, scrap metal or other hazards.
Waterproofing membranes consist of waterproof plastic, rubber, or coated fabric materials. When properly installed, they are used to prevent the ingress of water into foundations, roofs, walls, basements, buildings and structures.
Wire rope and mechanical cable is wound from high-strength metal strands for structural, mechanical actuation and motion control applications.
Wire rope fittings includes clips, sleeves, stud ends, eyes, forks and other hardware used to construct mechanical cable assemblies.
