Material Selection

Customized InventoryExpansion inventoryCustomized Inventory
With an expansive inventory of raw material, Scot Forge can begin processing your order the moment you call. We stock a wide variety of materials ranging from 4" billet to ingots exceeding 69" in diameter. Materials include carbon, alloy, stainless, tool steel, copper, nickel, titanium, aluminum, and other ferrous and non-ferrous grades. 100% of incoming material is verified for proper alloy using an optical emission spectrometer.

As the nation's largest purchaser of bottom poured ingots, Scot Forge works with melt shops supplying the strongest, cleanest materials available in the world. The diverse capabilities of these shops allow us to offer custom-melt materials uniquely suited to your application. In addition, VAR and ESR capabilities are readily available.

Ultra-clean steels are achieved with the use of advanced melting practices
