Hard to Find Materials

If you cannot locate a specific controlled or low expansion alloy, electrical/electronic nickel, soft magnetic alloy, refractory metal or alloy, or type of stencil grade stainless steel; or if you have an unusual requirement, for instance alloy, size or grade, and you don’t see it listed at this site, please call us. Our sales people are very knowledgeable and can assist you.

If you have another special purpose, high-technology material that you can’t find, if we don’t stock it, please contact Ed Fagan Inc. we’ll use our Material Locator service and try to find it for you. Or if your material requirement is too small to be of interest to the big producers, please contact Ed Fagan Inc.
