Despite the raw materials format or size, our internal material prep processes can cut larger sheets into smaller form factors for efficient manufacturing. Precision laser machined metals include stainless steel, red metals, precious metals, foundry metals, nickel, molybdenum, titanium, and other special alloys in the form of sheets, foil, expanded metals, wire mesh and cloth. Even metalized tapes like aluminum tape are excellent for preforms.
Nonmetal preform materials include thermosets and thermoplastics, rubber, cork, fiberglass, silicone, paper, sponge or foam, felt, ceramics, and leather/fabrics. To view our comprehensive listing of flat stock materials for preforms, click Materials.
Material selection is critical for many application. Our experienced technical sales staff is available to recommend materials based on cost, physical and performance properties, Mil-standards, and producible edge quality.
