Category Name Properties/Joining Finishing Sections available Images Metals Mild Steel Ferrous Metal that can be cut filed and shaped quite easily. Can be permanently joined using heat treatment method (brazing). Corrodes very easily due to high iron content and therefore requires primer to act as an anti-oxidant barrier and then paint or use cellulose spray paint. Flat bar Sheet Square tube & bar Round tube & bar Metals Aluminium Non-Ferrous metal that has high corrosion resistance. ...read more.


It can be heated and reshaped using a mould or former. Can be easily glued together using Chloroform Adhesive. All plastics are self finishing and therefore require no surface finish. However, by using wet & dry paper and then a metal polishing compound you can obtain a fantastic shiny edge finish. 3 mm sheet only Softwoods Pine A fast growing wood with a decorative grain pattern. ...read more.


Variety of sizes available and sections usually no larger than 75x75mm square Manufactured Boards Medium Density Fibreboard (MDF) A man-made board that is extremely easy to work with as it has no grain pattern and is available in a range of well finished sizes. PVA is the best way to glue pieces together. Similar to Pine with the exception that it has no grain or splinters and maybe paint would suit it best. Large Sheet sections ranging from 3, 6,10,15 mm in thickness. ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.

    However I developed my experiment from investigating sound insulation of one layer to many layers which had made this more interesting. Using my knowledge, this was again developed to replacing the CD player, with sound generator connected to the loudspeaker which produced the constant sound waves.


    Thus due to this my initial assumption is that sample F will be stronger than sample A, but A will be more ductile, due to F containing more carbon. 6 Looking at the results graph, sample A, you can see where the linear region ends and where the plastic deformation begins.


    In the case of Nylon 12 from dodecanelactam, higher temperature, i.e. above 260*C, are necessary for opening the ring structures but since in this case the condensation is not an equilibrium reaction the process will yield almost 100% of the polymer.
