Anodised Aluminium

Anodised Aluminium


Suitable for jewellery and most other applications. The coating is fairly hard but can be scratched with steel.

Bright Aluminium

Bright Aluminium


Bright aluminum is clean, shiny and light. There is hardly any black rub off from this material.

Stainless Steel

Stainless Steel


Stainless steel doesn't rust, is strong and clean. Suitable for all applications.

Gold Filled

Gold Filled


Gold filled wire is made from a 14K yellow gold tube (5% by weight) filled with a hard temper brass.

Sterling Silver

Sterling Silver


92.5% silver. A beautiful material but it does tarnish with age. It is easily restored with a chemical silver polish.

Titanium

Titanium


Titanium is corrosion resistant and hypo-allergenic with a matte light gray finish (think mithril). Light, yet strong, titanium is very suitable for chain mail.

Grade 5 Titanium

Stronger, tougher and better finished titanium links.

Anodised Titanium

Anodised Titanium


Electrically anodised titanium. The colours available are rose (not pictured), gold, bronze, light blue, dark blue, dark purple and green. Anodised titanium colours are muted when compared to anodised aluminum colours. The colour can be effected by oils from your skin - the colour is restored by washing with soap to remove the oils.

Neoprene

Neoprene


Neoprene is used to give weaves some stretch.

Anodised Niobium

Anodised Niobium


Anodised niobium is strong, corrosion resistant and hypo-allergenic. Niobium weighs about the same as most common chain mail materials - its 6% heavier than steel and 22% lighter than sterling silver. the vibrant colours and more delicate finish makes the material especially suitable for jewellery.
