Which Applications Do You Buy For?
Makers, purchasing managers, engineers, and designers all require different materials for vastly different applications. That is why Online Metals strives to have the most robust catalog of materials available online. We also understand that you, our customers, have very busy schedules and don’t have time to shop around our website all day looking for the perfect materials.
Over the past few months we’ve implemented product guides, dimension filters, project lists, and much more to sharpen your focus and get you to the products you need. This year, we are taking our efficiency a step further by introducing our “Shop By Application” pages. Starting with the launch of our Aerospace and Marine application industry pages.
Outside of the high strength aluminum’s such as 6061 and 7075, there are plenty of other materials that meet the specifications for aircraft and aerospace related manufacturing. Your material purchases come with full mill certifications and traceability giving you the piece of mind your project is in good hands. We have outlined a page specifically devoted to the products we see most of our Aerospace customers are looking for.
Similarly to aerospace, marine grade materials such as 316 stainless steel are the most obvious candidates for marine or water based applications. Our marine applications page now hosts complimentary materials that can also withstand extreme weather and salt water environments. This list is based on ability to perform in certain conditions and what our friends working on marine applications have ordered in the past. If you prefer domestic materials, we offer select products that are strategically sourced from the United States as well.
If there is an application page or addition to an application page that you would like to see please let us know by emailing us at [email protected]
