Other Metals

In addition to the primary metals detailed on this site, John Hood stock a broad selection of other materials including:

  • Cast iron
  • Mild steels
  • Tool steels
  • Engineering steels
  • Titanium
  • Nickel
  • Engineering plastics

Each product is stocked in a range of forms and sizes, providing customers with an unparalleled choice of metal options from a single source.

Our cast iron is held in two types - grey and nodular, both of which are available in round, square and flat bar.

Grey cast iron, although easy to machine, provides a superior mix of wear resistance and strength whilst the key characteristic of nodular cast iron is its ductility.

To supplement this, we hold an extensive choice of engineering and tools steels, largely in round and flat bar, available in quenched and tempered or rolled form. Where required, we can also provide 3.2 certification with intent via Lloyds.

Applications which demand corrosion resistance, excellent strength, and performance at high temperatures will be suited to our titanium and nickel alloy products - a selection of specifications and trademarked grades are available.
