Alloys Used in Bellows and Light Accessories Forming

Listed below are some of the materials we use for creating both our standard and custom metal bellows and expansion joints. Depending on the intended function of the product, we use different alloys that can resist different temperatures, avoid corrosion cracking, and more. Both our stainless steel bellows and expansion joints are crafted from superior materials to give you the quality you deserve. If you have any questions or concerns about our manufacturing process or the materials used in our metal bellows, please give us a call today.
