Canada's premium manufacturer of stainless steel flanges and fittings.



Carbon steel is steel whose main alloying constituent is carbon, with iron making up the remainder, and other elements present in quantities too small to affect the properties. The only other alloying elements allowed in plain-carbon steel are manganese (1.65% max), silicon (0.60% max), and copper (0.60% max); there is no specified minimum content of these or any other alloying metal.

Chrome-moly is an abbreviation for ‘chromium-molybdenum steel’ (sometimes spelled ‘cro-mo’ or ‘cr-mo’). Chrome-moly is a range of low alloy steels used, for example, to produce tubing for bicycle frames and race-car roll cages. It is not as lightweight as aluminum alloys, but has the advantages of high tensile strength and malleability, and is also easily welded. Although chrome-moly contains chromium, it does not have the corrosion resistance of stainless steel, though it does have a high tensile strength, and an excellent (high) weight to strength ratio.

Other Alloys

There are many other alloys, and although we do not stock all grades we are able to source many of them to meet your needs. We can provide other ferritic-austenitic (duplex) grades such as F50, F51 (2205), and F52, as well as high nickel alloys such as Inconel 625, Incoloy 825, and Hastelloy C-276, and rare stainless steel grades such as 304H. Our network of mills throughout the US and offshore guarantees that cost and delivery are always competitive.

Stainless steel is the generic name for a number of different steels used primarily because of their corrosion resistance. All stainless steels share a minimum percentage of 10.5% chromium. Chromium is always the deciding factor, although other elements, particularly nickel and molybdenum, are added to improve corrosion resistance.
