The science:

Stainless steel has been the armature makers choice for decades because of it’s natural strength and hardness. The majority of our armatures are manufactured from a mixture of stainless steel grades. This includes balls, joints and bar. To avoid excessive wear and galling – a process of cold welding, components in our joints are manufactured from 2 grades of stainless steel: SS416 and SS304.  The chromium content within the balls help lubricate the friction of movement between the SS416 ball plates.

Ball joint SS416

Corrosion resistant, hardened stainless steel. Applications ideal for gears, machined components and moving parts

Balls and bars SS304

Hardened with additional chromium content, withstands corrosion against water and acids, ideal for bearings and friction fittings.
