Aluminium. Radinox.

Lightweight: Aluminum is notably lightweight, making it an ideal choice for the outer lips of three-piece wheels. This reduced mass at the wheel's edge contributes to improved performance, enhancing handling, responsiveness, and agility. Aesthetic Versatility: Aluminum is highly malleable, allowing for a wide range of design possibilities and finishes. Polishing and brushing techniques can result in visually appealing and customizable wheel appearances. Corrosion Resistance: While not as corrosion-resistant as Radinox, aluminum still offers good resistance to rust and corrosion, especially when properly finished. Cost-Effective: Aluminum is often more cost-effective than premium materials like Radinox, providing a balance between quality and price. Heat Dissipation: Aluminum's thermal conductivity helps dissipate heat generated during braking, improving braking performance in high-demand situations. Weight: Radinox is heavier than aluminum, potentially diminishing some performance benefits by increasing unsprung mass and affecting handling and acceleration. Higher Cost: Radinox wheels tend to be more expensive than those made from aluminum, making them less budget-friendly. Maintenance: Although corrosion-resistant, Radinox may require more maintenance to keep its polished finish, while aluminum is generally lower-maintenance. Limited Design Flexibility: Radinox may be less malleable than aluminum, reducing design options for the outer lip, which can be more easily customized. Impact Sensitivity: Radinox may not be as impact-resistant as some alternative materials, which could lead to damage in high-impact situations. Aluminum is generally more forgiving in this regard.

Stainless steel is a versatile and popular material used in a wide range of applications due to its many advantages.

Corrosion Resistance: Stainless steel is highly resistant to corrosion, rust, and staining, making it an ideal choice for applications where exposure to moisture, humidity, and harsh environments is a concern. It contains a minimum of 10.5% chromium, which forms a protective oxide layer on the surface, preventing corrosion. Durability: Stainless steel is known for its durability and longevity. It can withstand exposure to a variety of elements, including water, chemicals, and extreme temperatures, without losing its structural integrity. Strength: Stainless steel is a strong material, capable of withstanding heavy loads and stresses. Low Maintenance: Stainless steel is relatively low-maintenance. It is easy to clean and doesn't require regular painting or coating to maintain its appearance and functionality. Aesthetic Appeal: Stainless steel has a clean, modern, and attractive appearance. It is often used in applications where both functionality and aesthetics are important. Hygienic Properties: Stainless steel is non-porous and easy to clean. Recyclable: Stainless steel is 100% recyclable, making it an environmentally friendly choice. High- and Low-Temperature Resistance: Stainless steel retains its strength and corrosion resistance at both high and low temperatures.

Titanium bolts offer a unique set of advantages that make them a preferred choice for specific applications, especially in high-performance and aerospace industries.

Exceptional Strength-to-Weight Ratio: Titanium is renowned for its remarkable strength-to-weight ratio. It is as strong as many steels while being significantly lighter, making it particularly advantageous. Corrosion Resistance: Titanium is highly corrosion-resistant, even in harsh environments. It forms a protective oxide layer on its surface, which helps prevent corrosion and rust. High-Temperature Resistance: Titanium maintains its strength and integrity at high temperatures, which is beneficial in applications where heat resistance is vital. Reduced Unsprung Mass: In automotive and racing applications, the use of titanium bolts reduces the unsprung mass of the vehicle. This can lead to improved handling and responsiveness, especially in suspension and brake components. Aesthetic Appeal: Titanium has a unique and attractive appearance, often displaying a distinct color due to an oxide layer. This aesthetic quality can be a factor in its selection for certain high-end or custom applications. High Strength: Titanium bolts are strong and can withstand significant loads. Longevity: Titanium has excellent durability, and it maintains its structural integrity over time, contributing to the longevity of components. Low Thermal Expansion: Titanium has a low coefficient of thermal expansion, which helps maintain stability and consistent performance.
