Aluminum

Aluminum offers a cost effective option for a wide range of industries and applications, including medical, robotics, aerospace, and automotive.

  • Corrosion resistant
  • High strength-to-weight ratio
  • Strength increases at subzero temperatures
  • Better electrical conductivity than copper
  • Holds paint well

Plethora offers:

Aluminum 6061
Aluminum 7075

Stainless Steel

The chromium in stainless steel forms an invisible layer that protects stainless steel parts from water and air. If the surface is scratched, this outer layer rebuilds itself, making stainless steel rust-proof.

  • Corrosion resistant
  • Excellent durability
  • Self repairing surface
