FORGING MATERIALS OVERVIEW

 

ULMA Piping makes the quality of its forged products its number one concern.

We produce our forgings from a wide variety of materials to suit the varying needs of customers in many industries. Our customers know they can rely on ULMA Piping when they need forgings and other pieces made from superior materials and at competitive prices. ULMA Piping manufactures products from the following materials, among others:

CARBON STEEL

HIGH-PERFORMANCE ALLOYS

COPPER

Carbon steel is an alloy of carbon and steel, available in several grades according to the amount of carbon in the mix, from low to very high. Forgings made from carbon steel are known for their strength, ductility, hardness, and impact resistance.

High-performance or “superalloys” are used in the most demanding applications, where their excellent creep resistance at high temperatures, good mechanical strength and surface stability, and resistance to the processes of corrosion and oxidation are vital. A wide range of forgings can be produced depending on your specific performance needs.

The reddish-orange tone of this naturally malleable metal is familiar to everyone, having been in use for thousands of years. It is prized in alloys for adding to impact resistance, strength and hardness.

ALLOY STEELS

ALUMINUM

Alloy steels containing one or more of a long list of alloying elements can be used — chromium, molybdenum, manganese and many more — with and without heat treatment, to produce forgings with a wide range of performance-enhancing properties. Consult us regarding your specific needs.

NICKEL ALLOYS

Aluminum is widely used in many industries, and readily alloys with other metals. Its corrosion resistance is excellent, and in alloys it can greatly improve mechanical properties.

Inconel® and Hastelloy® are but two common examples of the wide variety of alloys containing nickel. The increased

ductility that nickel brings to alloys makes

 

it

ideal for many applications. We can offer

TITANIUM

you forgings made of an extensive range of nickel alloys.

Extremely strong, fatigue- and corrosion-resistant, low-weight and low-density pieces can be manufactured with titanium and its alloys. When its high strength-to-weight ratio and resistance to acids, chemicals, salt water

STAINLESS STEELS

MONEL® ALLOYS

The addition of chromium and other alloying elements produces the special properties of the steels in the stainless steel range, including excellent resistance to corrosion and impacts, and high strength, among other virtues. Many of these forgings can be further hardened through heat treatment.

Monel® is the trademark name applied to

a

series of nickel and copper alloys. These

alloys are extremely resistant to corrosion

 

and acids, and are therefore highly prized in marine applications and environments where there will be exposure to harsh acids and corrosive media.

and corrosion in general are needed, titanium is the choice.
