Sandmeyer Steel Company has added SSC Invar 36 to its line of stainless steel and nickel alloy plate and plate products.
SSC Invar 36 is an austenitic nickel-iron alloy with an extremely low coefficient of thermal expansion, utilized extensively in applications requiring precise dimensional stability. Major markets for SSC Invar 36 plate include tools and dies for aerospace composite materials; cryogenic components and piping; liquefied natural gas production, storage and transportation; and laser components.
""The addition of SSC Invar 36 will enable us to expand our product offerings to the aerospace composite tooling market,"" said Ronald P. Sandmeyer, Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer. “We believe our focus on customer service and our ability to provide a quick delivery of custom-cut sizes will be appreciated by customers in the tooling market.”
Sandmeyer Steel Company is stocking SSC Invar 36 in plate thicknesses from .250"" (6.3mm) through 4.00"" (101.6mm).
