Building your Ship with Hillman Inc. Metals and Components
Before steel, ships were primarily built from wood. Neither as durable nor as water-resistant, the material was much less suitable for the application.
It may appear that ships are constructed from the same steel type, but that’s not the case. Here are some common materials used in ship building.
- Stainless Steel
- Specialty Steel Alloys
Primary uses of steel in ship making include:
- Engine Parts
- Shell Plating
