Custom Sheet Metal Materials

Prototek provides an extensive selection of sheet metal fabrication materials, including aluminum, copper, stainless steel, titanium, and various alloys. We understand that each project may have unique requirements, and if you need a specific material or grade/alloy that is not listed, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our team. We are committed to working with you to fulfill your project’s material needs.

Sheet Metal_Aluminum
Aluminum

Sheet metal fabricated aluminum is a popular choice for many industries due to its durability, lightweight properties, and attractive appearance. As a result, aircraft, automobiles, appliances, and electronics construction use aluminum. The fabrication process allows for customization of the final product, ensuring that it meets the exact specifications of the customer. The end product is strong, malleable, and resists rust and corrosion, making it an ideal choice for many applications.

Sheet Metal Fabrication_Copper
Copper

Sheet metal fabrication shapes and forms metals like copper sheets to create various products. Copper’s excellent ductility and malleability make it ideal for fabrication. Roofing, plumbing, electrical, and electronics often use copper. Our team cuts and shapes copper with specialized tools. Conversely, assembly, welding, and soldering are commonplace when creating copper components. Sheet metal fabricated copper has excellent thermal and electrical conductivity and is corrosion-resistant. It is suitable for multiple industries and applications.

Sheet Metal Fabrication_Stainless Steel
Stainless Steel

Stainless steel sheet metal is a durable and corrosion-resistant material widely used in various industries. It is created by adding chromium to steel, which forms a protective layer that prevents rust and other forms of corrosion. Additionally, the fabrication process involves cutting, bending, and welding a flat stainless steel sheet. Automotive parts, industrial equipment, and building components use stainless steel due to its low maintenance requirements and ability to withstand harsh environments and extreme temperatures. Furthermore, quality, versatility, and aesthetic appeal are qualities found in stainless steel.

Sheet Metal Fabrication_Titanium
Titanium

Sheet metal fabricated titanium is a popular material for sheet metal fabrication due to its excellent strength, corrosion resistance properties, and lightweight nature. The aerospace, military, medical, and industrial industries commonly use titanium in applications that require components with high strength-to-weight ratios. Additionally, titanium’s unique properties make it an ideal material for applications subject to high heat.

Sheet Metal Finishes

After cutting, bending, and forming sheet metal– finishing is the step in precision sheet metal fabrication because it determines the appearance and durability of the final product. Sheet metal fabricators may use various finishing techniques such as painting, powder coating, polishing, anodizing, or plating to provide additional protection against corrosion and wear. The chosen finishing technique depends on the metal product’s intended use and the designer’s aesthetic preferences. For example, a high-quality finish can enhance the product’s visual appeal and increase its value. Overall, finishing is crucial in creating a successful sheet metal fabrication project. Choosing a qualified and experienced sheet metal fabricator like Prototek can ensure the desired result is essential.
