image-Nov-02-2020-08-53-43-59-PMAs industries around the world push for higher and higher levels of performance in their materials, metallurgists continue to develop new and exciting alloys to meet today's challenges. Regardless of the environment, strain, or temperature that today's specialty metals need to operate in, there are choices available to engineer a range of solutions in a variety of applications. Combining the global resources of the Central Wire Group of Companies, including our metallurgical knowledge and production experience, Central Wire can provide the highest quality solutions, including the right alloy for your application, each and every time. 

Temperature presents a unique challenge when working with metals -- the ability to select alloys that can maintain their strength and yield during high heat applications, but that is able to be processed in temperature ranges that make them viable for use in industry. Central Wire offers a selection of Specialty Alloys that can be processed economically but can also provide high-temperature resistance. If you are developing solutions that require operation in a challenging high-temperature environment, take a moment to review the choice below.
