Bringing Function to Playtime

Sonotubes are a particular brand name of cardboard tube that is used as a concrete form for the construction of buildings and bridges. A sonotube is placed into the ground where the desired concrete column is wanted. The tube is then filled with concrete, which is allowed to dry. After the concrete hardens, the tube is cut away to reveal the molded concrete column. Concrete columns created by sonotubes are surprisingly sturdy and resistant to a variety of impacts and vibrations, and can even resist earthquakes and other shifts in the earth. Continue reading

The What and Why of Aluminized Steel Sheets

Aluminized steel sheets are sheets of steel treated with an aluminum-silicon alloy. This causes the aluminum and steel to bond that gives the metal unique properties of both metals. Aluminized steel has a higher corrosion resistance and can hold the properties of steel in strength and durability under temperatures less than 800 Celsius. Usually, the steel is used in water heaters, furnaces, heat exchangers, vehicle mufflers, ovens, fireplaces, barbecue grills, stoves, corrugated roofing, air conditioning housing, drying ovens, building siding, storage bins, and baking pans.

Why You Should Use Specialized Metal Service Centers

A metal service center typically buys metal from a metal foundry or other metal manufacturing plant and then re-sells it to specific industries. Usually, metal service centers shape and tool the metal into a usable form for the final customer. The reason that these service centers exist is to prevent the metal manufacturing company from having to keep all of the metal shaping and processing equipment in one location. This allows metal manufacturing plants to focus purely on metal creation, while other factories and facilities can transform the metal into usable pieces and parts for further manufacturing. Continue reading
