Material Selection

Material Selection

Providing engineering solutions for our customers is one of the core experiences you will receive when partnering with H. Loeb Corporation. We team with our customers in all facets of service from concept and design phase to full-scale production runs. One important step in the process is in determining the material selection for your product.

Why Material for an Engineering Design is Important

We work with our clients to select the appropriate material for the job or application. Your product may require a number of mechanical properties to meet certain criteria and specifications.

  • For example, will a thermoplastic or thermoset plastic be needed?
  • Will the product require a degree of elasticity or high tensile strength?
  • What are the environmental conditions in which the product will perform in?
  • Is the product for high heat or sub-zero applications?

The answer to these questions will determine the product’s material selection.
