Metro Industries maintains a considerable inventory and solid network of supply partners for a wide variety of mostly non-metallic materials plus light gauge metals like foils and screen wire clothsRubber or elastomers is the largest general class of materials we feature, and amongst the most versatile, most being available as solid rubbers or cellular sponges or foams.  Both rubber and plastics, another major material class in our inventory, are distinct amongst our materials in that they can either be extruded or molded into about any conceivable two or three-dimensional shape, respectively.

Additionally, we carry a number of other material classes besides rubber and plastic materials suited to conversion from roll or sheet stock into about any flat two-dimensional component according to customer specification through die cutting, waterjet cutting, laser cutting, slitting, shearing, blanking, and other machining processes.   These include other materials are fiberglass and ceramic insulation and filtration medias, high tech RF and EMI shielding materials, epoxyglass phenolic laminates, composition cork and cork and rubber composites, and various other gasket packing and composite gasket sheeting materials (e.g. vegetable fiber, non-asbestos, etc.)  Our materials cover such a broad range that its almost easier to describe them by negation as about any raw material made in sheet or roll form that is softer and pliable than steel, glass, and wood.

Naturally, whole or partial sheets and rolls of most materials are also available in original form or slit or blanked to size.  A selection of pressure sensitive adhesives with easy peel off liners are available on most materials, and many can be vulcanized, glued, assembled, inserted with snaps, rivets, or grommets or otherwise processed to meet a broad range of application requirements.

The table below illustrates our primary classes of materials and the fabrication options available for each.  More specific information by material class is available through the links to the right.
