Materials - General

The pages included here are of a general nature. It is never possible to cover all variants of all materials, but in some cases - eg stainless steel - additional information has been included due to the wide range of properties and applications for that material.

Generic forming techniques such as welding and casting are covered in more detail in the Tools and Techniques section of this website.
