Material Guide

Iron/Steel(SS): Iron is a silvery white natural element.Steel is an alloy consisting of iron. It rusts easily in moist air and is attracted by a magnet.It is also low in tensile strength and ductility.But still is used due to Low Cost, High compressive Strength.They are used in wrought Iron decorative hardware, Hinges, Lock bodies and Cylinders. The finish achived is not very attractive in this case.

Stainless Steel 304 (SS304): Stainless Steel is an alloy mainly containing iron, chromium and nickel. The percentage of chromium and nickel define the rust resistance of different grades of staineless steel. SS 304 has the most desirable combination making it highly rust resistant, but as it contains some amount of iron it will rust over a period of time irrespective of its grade.Stainless Steel material can be lacquered to enhance durability.It is the most commonly used material along with Brass in the hardware industry.SS 304 is less expansive as compared to SS 316 and more expensive as compared to brass,zinc & aluminium and other grades of steel in the series of 200 and 400. Ss304 contains 18% Chromium and 8% Nickel

Stainless Steel 316 (Ss316): SS 316 Is more resistant to the corrosion comparative to other leagues as SS 304 and ss 430, when used in environments of high corrosion(for example, water of the sea, chemical products, etc.). It contains minimum 18% Chromium, 10% nickel and 2% molibdenium.

Brass:Brass consists mainly of copper and does not possess iron.Thus, it does not rust at all but the finish gets dull over a period of time and requires repolishing.Brass hardware can be plates to achive different finishes like Antique, Satin, Chrome and so on. Also in India brass is easily available at comparatively low prices and so is extensively used for manufacturing hardware products.

Zinc: Zinc like brass is non-ferrous and thus non-rusting. zinc is nowadays becoming popular amongst hardware users due its properties like non-rusting, low cost and easy availability. It is light in weight and not suitable for heavy doors & security doors. Also the finish attained on zinc is not as durable as that on SS and Brass.

Aluminium(ALU): Aluminium is very light in weight and is suitable for use with light weight doors and aluminium doors. It's dull finish, low weight carrying capacity and possibility of denting has made it less preferable than the other materials.The advantage of aluminium are that it is low in cost and serves the purpose effectively.Although it is not suitable for security doors.

Improper installations or any unguided product hampering is not a responsibility of PAG. It is the responsibility of the buyer to ensure the fitness of hardware for the intended purpose. We recommend assessment by appropriate testing in the application and by technical enquiry to our representatives or by understanding the manual provided with the product. Products may be sharp edged or blunt and heavy. Please handle with proper handling techniques and please keep all products away from the reach of children during or before installation. Keep the products in good condition and avoid contact with chemicals, water, paste, dirt and abuse to increase the life of the product. Finishes treated with protective coatings quickly deteriorate if the surface is broken. To prolong the life and maintain the original beauty of the material and the finish, it is important to avoid the use of paint removing solvents, acids, ambro tapes or other strong caustic cleaning solutions. Before painting doors, frames & woodwork. All hardware items should be removed and re-installed after the paint is dry.
