Some Metal Distributor Key Terms and Definitions

As you may know, metal distributors are professionals that sell various types of steel, sheet metal, and copper pipe supplies. Some distributors are also manufacturers and fabricators of these materials. All kinds of metal tubes, iron rods, and aluminum products are distributed to construction companies and other businesses. Below is a list of key terms to better educate you on metal distribution and the materials used in this industry.

  • Metal Fabricator – Someone who constructs or manufactures metal products, such as steel sheets, aluminum tubes, and copper piping. These products are then used for building construction, plumbing, and industrial purposes.
  • Galvanized Steel – This is a type of steel that is coated with a protective layer of zinc, which improves the strength and corrosion-resistance of the metal. Iron is another material that can be galvanized.
  • Wrought Iron – A tough, yet malleable form of iron that is suitable for rolling and forging, as opposed to casting. This iron is almost pure, and typically black in color. It is used on fences, gates, stair rails, and art pieces.
  • Brass – This is an alloy made from zinc and copper. It is typically yellow or dark yellow in hue, and is considered ornate. It is common to see brass used in door handles, hinges, candle holders, and even jewelry.
  • Bronze – A yellowish brown metal or alloy that is made from tin and copper materials. Bronze is used to make various products, such as medallions, jewelry, and even interior design accents.
  • Copper – This is a metal that is reddish brown in color, and was one of the first metals used by humans. It was once used to make pennies, and is still used to manufacture pipes for plumbing purposes today.

    Metal is needed in many applications of daily life. Construction, manufacturing, industrial, building, and roofing are just a few industries where metal is used on a regular basis. For this, companies turn to metal distributors for metal of all kinds, such as galvanized steel, nickel, silver, brass, and other alloys. Wrought iron, gold, stainless steel, copper, and aluminum are other types of metal that distributors may offer. Metal comes in a variety of shapes and sizes, too, depending on their purpose. Metal sheets may be useful for roofers, while tubes and pipes may be ideal for contractors. While some metals can be decorative, many others are functional. Also called metal fabricators or suppliers, these distributors manufacture metal products in various forms, such as railings. Some distributors and manufacturers specialize in a particular type of metal. Some sell products by the foot, without minimums. Alongside shipping and delivery services, many offer free quotes and online offerings. They often offer products like aluminum sheets, copper, and steel to building material dealers, wholesalers, engineers, and contractors. All of these professionals can utilize lead, bronze, and nickel in decorative or functional ways. Distributors may employ custom methods of forming metals, from die casting and extrusion to forging and centrifugal casting. Many metals are even recycled. This means they are melted down and reused to protect the environment by reducing pollution, saving resources, and reducing the use of landfills. Iron, steel, and aluminum are some of the more popular recycled metals. Metal distributors can be found on the Internet, where many feature their own websites outlining services for consumers.
