Engineering Materials

Every issue of Engineering Materials includes a mix of regular sections and feature articles covering composites, polymers and plastics, metals and alloys. Bringing its readers the latest in material developments and innovation, the editorial approach starts with the process of materials selection, moves through design implications and benefits to potential new applications and products. It then considers manufacturing and process considerations before looking at the recycling and end of life issues.

Engineering Materials’ circulation is derived from MA Business’s market leading database. This database has coverage of all manufacturing and design sites within the UK and is updated continuously by our specialist data research team.

If you are trying to influence design or production engineers responsible for purchasing and specifying materials and materials process, then Engineering Materials is your ‘must have’ partner. If your plans incorporate display advertising, more complicated projects such as gatefold covers or bellybands, or if you require assistance in design, writing and layout of advertorial, Engineering Materials has the options to suit your marketing strategy and your budget.

With Engineering Materials’ editorial experience, creative routes to market and a circulation of 15,000 key decision makers, no one understands materials better or is in a better position to help you fulfil your company’s marketing aims.

Tungsten to replace lead

Published: 06 November 2017

EU Directive 2011/65/EU (RoHS 2) regulates the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment, with lead ranked at the top of the list, higher than mercury and cadmium. It means lead is highly toxic and does not break down easily, which is why a weight proportion of only 0.1% is permitted in new electronic and electric equipment. It also has a melting point of 327°C, constituting an additional hazard in case of fire.

Decluttering space

Published: 05 September 2017

Hundreds of millions of pieces of space junk orbit the Earth daily, from chips of rocket paint, to entire dead satellites. This cloud of high-tech detritus circles the planet at 17,500mph. At these speeds, even objects as small as a pebble can severely damage a passing spacecraft.
