Specialised Cut to Size Metal for the defence industry

The defence sector employs a diverse range of metals for various applications, from vehicle manufacturing to electronic components and ballistic protection. Our expertise in suppling cut to size metal for defence equipment is extensive, we understand the critical importance of customising metals and alloys to fulfil the specific requirements of military use.

Metals for defence and military use

We consider the following metals to be vital for applications in the defence and military fields:


Aluminium is a top choice for naval applications and is equally valuable in aircraft, electrical, and radar systems due to its lightness, which contributes to improved fuel efficiency and aircraft performance. Aluminium is also utilised in the production of weapons, military transport, and protective gear.

Stainless Steel

Stainless Steel is common in both aircraft and land vehicles in the defence industry, owing to its non-magnetic nature and resistance to corrosion. Its robust tensile strength and malleability make it ideal for military applications such as missile construction, as well as various hardware and equipment.
