Material

  • Brass is corrosive resistant, ductile at high temperatures, and has a low magnetic permeability.
  • Carbon steel is steel with a main alloying constituent of carbon.
  • Cast iron is a strong, brittle, non-ductile, iron-carbon alloy.
  • High-carbon steel is steel with a main alloying constituent of carbon. Compared to regular or low-carbon steel, high-carbon steel is harder and stronger, with a lower melting point.
  • Nylon is very strong and flexible, has excellent abrasion resistance, is lightweight, and resists crushing and cracking.
  • Polyoxymethylene (POM), sometimes called acetal, is a thermoplastic copolymer, characterized by its hardness, low coefficient of friction, and high resistance to heat and abrasion.
  • Stainless steel resists scaling and corrosion.
  • Steel is a good general-purpose material.
