Titanium is much less dense but as strong as steel. It is resistant to corrosion, even from seawater, and is often used in power plant condensers and desalination plants to protect ships, submarines and other structures exposed to seawater. It is also used widely in the medical industry for hip replacments, dental implants and joint replacments.


Stainless steel has a wide range of properties such as high corrosion resistance, high strength and hardness and is low maintenance. It is used often in the Automotive and transportation industry, medical industry, aircraft construction, food and catering idustry and many others.


Nickel is used to plate other metals to help protect them and resists corrosion. It is mostly used for making alloys such as stainless steel. It is also used in rechargeable nickel-cadmium batteries and nickel-metal hydride batteries that are used in hybrid vehicles


With the latest modern techniques, now more than ever manufacturers can develop alloys that have the exact required properties to fulfil a requirement. Along Trading have worked along side alloy manufacturers for many years to help design and build solutions for the worlds industries

NICKEL-BASE Superalloy

Nickel-based superalloys are exceptionally strong. Products such as Inconel 625 exhibit a tensile strength of 690 MPa and a yield strength of 275 MPa. Other products can reach up to 1125 MPa in yield strength. Far higher than titanium and even diamond. They can withstand high temperatures and are resistant against corrosion, but weld extremely well, significantly better than other metals.
