leisure Materials

An Introduction

Featured on this page is an example of the products which we are most frequently asked to supply. As a source and supply specialist, please do not hesitate to contact us if you have a specific material or application which you may require, but that you don't see represented on this 'site. Our niche is in finding and supplying the materials which others can't. 


Aluminium in Leisure

When we consider what's needed by the leisure, sports and recreation industry, Aluminium has many of the properties required. It's strong, lightweight, easy to form, can be anodized into hundreds of different hues and has great corrosion protection. For these compelling reasons, it is used extensively across the aforementioned industries.

Nickel in Leisure

As such a specialist material, it isn't too surprising that there are few applications for Nickel in the leisure industry. Nickel as a plating material is older than chrome plating, so some manufacturers still use Nickel plating for a hardwearing coating. Also, it can't be ignored that Nickel is still one of the major components of Lithium-Nickel-Manganese-Cobalt-Oxide batteries, so many goods reliant on recyclable batteries are likely to contain this metal.

Steel in Leisure

Steel is easily the most abundantly used material in the Leisure, Sports and Recreation industries. It is relatively inexpensive compared to other materials, is easy to join, form and cold work. Offering high strength, easy formability and, in Stainless form, excellent corrosion resistance, it's not hard to see why. Add into this relative inexpense and it's not difficult to conceive that it will continue to be the market-leading material for some time to come.

Carbon Fibre in Leisure

Carbon Fibre is a dream material for engineers designing goods for the leisure, sports and recreation industries, owing to its myriad useful properties. It is strong, lightweight, stiff, easy to form into almost any shape, will not rust, corrode, or discolour and can be easily repaired if damaged. Even though it has already found itself utilised in countless sporting applications, innovations continue to be found for this remarkable material.

Aramids in Leisure

As is often their niche, Aramids are used in the leisure industry to provide protection for users and to reinforce other materials. Being a lightweight, strong and puncture resistant material, as well as imperveous to the elements and easily formed into complex shapes, renders it useful across a broad range of applications in the leisure industry.

Titanium in Leisure

Equipped with a broad range of characteristics to boast of, Titanium has a good foothold in the leisure industry. With an excellent strength to weight ratio, unrivalled corrosion resistance and extensive range of alloys to choose from, leisure goods made from Titanium are built to last. Certainly, given its stability across extremes of temperature and hard wearing properties also, Titanium finds use in the most extremes of environments.
