Stainless steel and titanium building components are not difficult to fabricate or install given proper tooling & procedures. Since high performance metals like these have elevated mechanical properties compared to metals more commonly used in construction, adequate machinery and tooling need to be used. These metals are generally quite formable and offer the added benefit of being weld-able to permit more durable installations of these materials – which are by design already longer lasting and more sustainable than traditional building materials. Suggested fabrication and installation procedures, that are unique to certain Contrarian Metal Resources products, are indicated in their respective data sheets. General information concerning the fabrication of stainless steel can be obtained at ssina.com. Further, a Contrarian Metal Resources product consultant are available to provide assistance to the fabricator or installer whom has questions or concerns regarding the proper handling of these materials.
