Common Hardware Stamping Materials 

Stainless steel. Stainless steel has optimal strength, and this durable metal provides high levels of corrosion resistance as well, making it suitable for metal stamping. Its hygienic characteristics also lend it to uses in kitchen utensils, cookware, and parts for hygienic pumps. Manufacturers use stainless steel to produce hardware components for industrial sectors like aerospace, food and beverage, healthcare, and pharmaceuticals.

Aluminum. Aluminum has a particularly high strength-to-weight ratio given its lightweight. It also has electrical and thermal conductive properties. These characteristics make it an optimal choice for hardware components in the aerospace, architecture, marine, and solar industries.

Copper. Copper is non-reactive in the presence of thermal conductivity. Its heat resistance and ductility attributes make copper suitable for various metal stamped hardware components for the HVAC, healthcare, and plumbing sectors.

Brass. This alloy possesses a smooth finish for a bright, aesthetically pleasing surface. Despite being a soft metal, it has good resistance to corrosion. As such, metal stamped hardware components are useful for automotive, electrical or electronic, and plumbing applications.
