Stainless steel is used in various industries because of its excellent strength and corrosion resistance.
Stainless steel is the best example of a metal that exhibits excellent resistance to corrosion, oxidation, and also results in a smooth surface finish. The 12% percent of chromium content of stainless steel contributes to the quality of its ductility, hardness, high strength, workability, and formability, making it a highly in-demand metal in the industry.
Stainless steel is a low-cost steel and is 100% recyclable and recoverable. This highly-sought material is used often in metalworking operations for centerless grinding, saw cutting, turning, and much more.
Advance Grinding Services supplies stainless steel materials to a wide range of different industries including automotive, medical, aircraft, construction, oil and chemical processing, military equipment, and many more.
Our inventory offers an extensive array of stainless steel materials, varying in grades, types, stock sizes, etc.

The Basics of Aluminum Alloy
Aluminum is the most abundant metal in Earth’s crust after silicon and oxygen. It has a silvery-white appearance and contains a lot of valuable mechanical properties. It possesses 60% of the electrical conductivity of copper, with much lower density, making it a lightweight material perfect for aircraft and aerospace construction.
Pure aluminum is soft and ductile, but it can be strengthened when it is alloyed with other elements like magnesium, copper, and silicon. Such alloys possess better corrosion resisting properties, with a protective oxide coating that is achieved and enhanced through the process of anodization. Their lightweight and non-toxic mechanical properties enable them to be easily machined and cast. One good thing about aluminum is that it is recyclable, which can save considerable amounts of energy. They only need to undergo a melting process in order for them to be reused.
Aluminum alloys have low density, therefore, they are lightweight which is one of the key factors to consider in constructing an aircraft and its vital parts. Other important properties they possess are malleability, high strength, easy machining, good electrical and thermal conductivity, and excellent corrosion resistance.
Aluminum in the Aviation Industry
80 percent of commercial transport aircraft frames are made up of aluminum. This alloy is the top choice for the construction of aircraft and parts like wings and fuselage. Most navy aircraft are mainly made of fabricated aluminum. The focus on aluminum casting technology is continuing to earn recognition with its countless advantages in forming complex parts for aircraft structure. With a low manufacturing cost, Aluminum Alloy is the top choice for incorporating innovative and complicated design concepts in the aviation industry.
