What our customers say about us

What is galvanised sheeting?

Robust, reliable and rust-resistant, our galvanised steel sheet is just the job when weather-proofing is a must. With its tough coating of zinc carbonate, it’s designed to withstand the most extreme of the elements and last for a very long time. From walls to washing machines, the scope for our best-selling metal is endless. We know that everyone’s need for galvanised steel plate is different, which is why we’re happy to cut yours down to the exact size you need. This free service ensures you have exactly what you need for your project, with absolutely nothing going to waste. Plus, there’s no minimum order, meaning no job’s too small. Good for: Car parts, roofs, inner and outer wall sheeting, sheds, construction parts, buckets, planters, wheelbarrows, drainpipes, tubes, sections, machine-building, domestic appliances, electrical goods, agricultural machinery and many more. Galvanised steel’s properties make it tough enough for most exterior projects. Painting: Galvanised steel looks great when it’s coated in colour, but always use specialist primer and paint. How it’s made: Galvanised sheet steel is made when sheet steel is passed through a bath of red-hot, molten zinc. When oxygen reacts with pure zinc, zinc oxide is formed. Zinc oxide reacts with carbon dioxide to form zinc carbonate. It might be dull and grey, but what it lacks in lustre, zinc carbonate more than makes up for in performance. Like an excellent outdoor jacket, zinc carbonate is what protects the steel within from the weather, and the reason why galvanised steel sheets are a proven favourite in the great outdoors. Galvanised steel used to be easily recognisable by its trademark star or spangle pattern, formed on the metal’s surface during the treatment process. As smoother surfaces became more popular, spangles shrunk and, in the case of our steel sheet, they are not visible to the naked eye. If you are looking for metal with the traditional spangle pattern, see our big bright spangled galvanised steel. Benefits:
  • Resistant to rust
  • Versatile
  • Tough coating
  • Great for outdoor projects
Random fact: The process of galvanisation is named after Luigi Galvani, the Italian chemist who discovered electromagnetism in 1781 during an experiment on frogs’ legs.

What our customers say about us

What is mild steel sheet metal?

The term “mild steel” is used to describe low-carbon steel. While mild steel is still strong and tough, it can be further strengthened by the process of carburising – a heat treatment using a source of carbon. The steel is malleable, weldable and ductile, as well as being cost-effective and relatively easy to form. No wonder it's a popular choice in the construction industry.

Where is mild steel used?

Mild steel has many applications that include construction (especially to  meet seismic or wind requirements), machine parts and pipelines. As mild steel is difficult to break and easy to form, it is also used in sculptures and outdoor designs (e.g. fences). To prevent corrosion, it is usually galvanised or painted. You probably use or see mild steel products every day in wires, nails, decorations, and many furniture elements. Even road signs are made of low carbon steel! Because of its high amount of iron and ferrite, this type of steel can be magnetic which makes it the perfect choice to create a magnetic board with.

Our price promise

Buy Metal Online is a reliable stockholder of mild steel sheets at incredibly competitive prices. We are so confident in our mild steel sheet prices that we guarantee you will not find it cheaper! Should you find a mild steel price online in the UK lower on price per unit, we will beat it by 5%. Just let us know which competitor is offering the lower price, and we'll handle the rest. Please call Rebecca, Georgia, Brooke or Sara on 0191 264 6464, or email sales@buymetalonline.co.uk and we'll be happy to help with your mild steel sheet enquiry.

pre weathered corten steel sheet

Corten steel sheet (also known as weathering steel) is instantly identifiable thanks to its rich, bright orange tones. Originally developed for building coal carriages in 1930s America, it is now one of the most stylish and durable metals on the market. Corten steel plate might look like it’s rusty, but thanks to clever manipulation in its processing, the outer oxidisation actually protects the steel from further corrosion, as well as giving it its striking good looks. The grey metal pictured shows our natural/raw Corten sheet when first purchased, whilst the orange-coloured metal shows how it typically looks like after the weathering process, which takes between 3-10 months of exposure to the elements. If you want your Corten ready-weathered, check out our pre-weathered Corten steel. When rust looks good Corten steel sheet (also known as weathering steel) is instantly identifiable thanks to its rich, bright orange tones. Originally developed for building coal carriages in 1930s America, it is now one of the most stylish and durable metals on the market. Corten steel plate might look like it’s rusty, but thanks to clever manipulation in its processing, the outer oxidisation actually protects the steel from further corrosion, as well as making it look very good indeed. There’s no need to paint this one and it just looks better with age, no wonder designers love it. For years, Corten has been the metal of choice for containers and other shipping elements. More recently, though, it’s become the material of choice for many artists, architects and interior designers. We’re proud to supply talented artists and sculptors with Corten for their gorgeous projects, including UK-based Eddie Roberts, who works the metal into stunning creations. As well as art, Corten steel cladding is extremely popular and it is often used for buildings, giving it a tough coating against the elements and an industrial-looking edge. Recently, our weathering steel was used both inside and out for the makeover of The Western, a stylish Brighton bar. We supply our weathering steel panels in a huge variety of thicknesses and sizes and our free cutting service means we can trim it down to the precise size you need, with no minimum order. Just email us for your Corten Steel prices. Whether you’re looking for stunning aesthetics, weather performance or a wonderful mix of both, it delivers. How it’s made: Weathering steel is an alloy, which is what makes it so resistant to the elements. The addition of nickel, copper and chromium at the production stage means that over time, a protective patina will develop on the surface of the metal. Good for: Cladding, containers, marine transportation, bridges, general architecture, interiors, art installations, water features, sculptures, planters and many more. Benefits:
  • Hard-wearing
  • Low maintenance
  • Weatherproof
  • Striking looks
What our customers say about us: “Great value, fast and efficient. We wanted to fabricate Corten steel doors and this company shipped metal really quickly to Northern Scotland, a part of the world which many companies refuse to deliver to. The fact that they will send large sheets of steel here is greatly appreciated. The Corten steel panels cost was also very reasonable. I will definitely not hesitate or shop around next time, I will Buymetalonline.” – Peter Thompson, Trustpilot, December 2015. Random Fact: The most famous Corten steel building is the Barclay Centre in Brooklyn, New York, which is made of 12,000 weathering steel panels.

This magnetic board comes in a huge range of sizes, as it’s made from galvanised steel, it is equipped to handle all the weather elements making it a great for both indoor and outdoor projects. Thinking of installing a notice board at home or in the office?  Then our galvanised magnetic notice boards are perfect for you. Our customers use these for displaying photographs, children’s artwork, staff notices and important documents.   The sheets are 1.0 mm thick. This product isn’t magnetic itself, so it won’t pick up metal objects, however it is the ideal thickness for both children’s magnets, industrial magnets and anything in between.  Whether you’re looking to keep your bills in order, display your precious photographs or give your living room an industrial edge, the opportunities for magnetic boards are endless. If you can’t see the size you’re looking for in the box above, just let us know; we’re always happy to cut to cut metal to size – and there’s no minimum order, so your magnetic notice board can be delivered just the size you want. How it’s made: Galvanised steel is made when steel is fortified with a powerful layer of zinc. The metal is dipped in an extremely hot bath of molten zinc, which causes a chemical reaction, resulting in a protective layer of zinc which makes the finished product supremely tough. Whilst the zinc that’s added to steel in the galvanisation process is not magnetic, the steel itself is. The amount of zinc used is so little that it doesn’t affect the performance of the steel, meaning magnets will stick to it. Good for: Notice boards, photography displays, shop displays, interiors or anywhere else where a surface that attracts magnets is required. Painting: Galvanised steel can be coated in paint, but make sure you use a specialist product and primer. Benefits:
  • Attracts magnets
  • Huge range of sizes available
  • Free cutting service
  • Sturdy and long-lasting
Please note: We do not offer pre-drilled holes in the corners of the metal What our customers say about us: “Even though the original order arrived damaged the service was fantastic. It was corrected and the new pieces delivered in double quick time. The delivery man was very helpful in moving the heavy pallet for me. I e-mailed a question about the metal galvanisation and I was called back almost instantly with an answer. I was very impressed by the service I received and would fully recommend them.” – Stuart, Trustpilot, December 2015. Random fact: The largest collection of fridge magnets in the world belongs to Louise Greenfarb of Henderson, Las Vegas, United States. She is also known, imaginatively, as ‘Magnet Lady’. Her collection began in the seventies and gradually spread; as well as the hundreds of magnets adorning the front of her fridge, there are novelties and souvenirs on other appliances, doors and all over her home – a grand total of 45,000 magnets.

What is Aluminium Sheet? The Lightweight One Ultra-ductile, rust resistant and super-light, our sheet aluminium is suitable for a multitude of uses. This nonmagnetic, widely recycled metal is perhaps most well-known for its role in drinks cans and other packaging. Thanks to its lightweight properties, though, it also aces aircraft engineering, luggage components, bicycles and auto parts. What’s more, aluminium is incredibly resistant to corrosion, making it a clever choice for windows, roofing and other construction jobs. Aluminium is easily identifiable by its bright, silvery sheen. Just like the other metals we sell, we can provide your sheet aluminium in exactly the size you need, meaning no excess product will go to waste. There’s no minimum order, too, so you can order as much or as little aluminium as you need. Good for: Packaging, drinks cans, foil sheets, cookware, home appliances, signage, storage tanks, trailers, welding, car panels, spacecraft, aerospace engineering, furniture, gutters, awnings, roofing, siding, luggage, bicycle components, ships, military vehicles, armour. How it's made: Get ready for a quick science lesson: the process of making aluminium sheet begins with bauxite, a soil-like substance that’s mined from underground. Clay is washed off the bauxite, which then goes through a grinding machine, before being plunged into a hot bath of caustic soda and lime. The caustic soda and lime refine the bauxite, extracting aluminium oxide. The aluminium oxide is filtered and heated, and by now takes the form of white powder. Next, electricity and carbon are combined with the aluminium oxide to create aluminium; an electrical current is passed between a negative carbon cathode and a positive carbon anode. The anode and the oxygen in the aluminium oxide react, producing carbon dioxide. This process creates liquid aluminium, which is moulded into ingots ready to be rolled out into aluminium sheets at the factory. Benefits:
  • Low density
  • Versatile
  • Corrosion-resistant
  • Recyclable
What our customers say about us: “Competitively priced. Helpful on the phone before online ordering. Cut to size for us. Promptly delivered. Can't ask for more!” – Mr N Smith, Trustpilot, September 2016. Random fact: The largest sculpture made of aluminium drinks cans was built in Abu Dhabi, UAE in 2012. Comprising 46,566 aluminium cans, the structure was a scale model of the city’s landmark, 200-year-old Al Maqta Fort. It was built on Al Taweelah beach by a team of 30 people, and it took six full days to create.

Just let us know and we’ll take care of the rest!

Installing your aged brass sheets

Brass is a soft alloy so needs to be handled with care. Try not to drop or bash the sheet when moving it around otherwise it may become damaged. Aged brass sheets can be installed using screw fixings or adhesive depending on the situation. Where possible, try not to drill holes into the sheet as you may damage the lacquer and leave metal exposed. If you need any help with installation or sizing, contact the team here at Buy Metals Online. We would be only too happy to help!

Aged brass

Brass is an alloy made up of copper and zinc. The proportions of which give brass the lustrous finish and wide variety of depths and colours. We take standard brass sheets and accelerate the ageing process to provide its key character. Then we finish with a gloss lacquer to deliver the shine and to stop the ageing process. The gloss lacquer should last many years, but can be worn through using harsh chemicals, repeated washing, excessive heat and poor treatment. Sheets can be protected through careful use and the lacquer reapplied if necessary.

Caring for your aged brass sheets

Aged brass sheets should require minimal maintenance depending on where they are installed. If a sheet requires cleaning, use warm soapy water and a microfibre cloth. Do not use a scouring sponge or chemical cleaning products as this will accelerate the wear of the lacquer. Wipe any spills immediately and wash down with warm soapy water. Avoid contact with other metals to prevent a reaction. Get in touch with Josh, on 07703 567916 or josh@specialtyservices.co.uk, for a no-obligations custom quote. All sheets can be cut to size before dispatch.

What our customers say about us

What is galvanised sheeting?

Robust, reliable and rust-resistant, our galvanised steel sheet is just the job when weather-proofing is a must. With its tough coating of zinc carbonate, it’s designed to withstand the most extreme of the elements and last for a very long time. From walls to washing machines, the scope for our best-selling metal is endless. We know that everyone’s need for galvanised steel plate is different, which is why we’re happy to cut yours down to the exact size you need. This free service ensures you have exactly what you need for your project, with absolutely nothing going to waste. Plus, there’s no minimum order, meaning no job’s too small. Good for: Car parts, roofs, inner and outer wall sheeting, sheds, construction parts, buckets, planters, wheelbarrows, drainpipes, tubes, sections, machine-building, domestic appliances, electrical goods, agricultural machinery and many more. Galvanised steel’s properties make it tough enough for most exterior projects. Painting: Galvanised steel looks great when it’s coated in colour, but always use specialist primer and paint. How it’s made: Galvanised sheet steel is made when sheet steel is passed through a bath of red-hot, molten zinc. When oxygen reacts with pure zinc, zinc oxide is formed. Zinc oxide reacts with carbon dioxide to form zinc carbonate. It might be dull and grey, but what it lacks in lustre, zinc carbonate more than makes up for in performance. Like an excellent outdoor jacket, zinc carbonate is what protects the steel within from the weather, and the reason why galvanised steel sheets are a proven favourite in the great outdoors. Galvanised steel used to be easily recognisable by its trademark star or spangle pattern, formed on the metal’s surface during the treatment process. As smoother surfaces became more popular, spangles shrunk and, in the case of our steel sheet, they are not visible to the naked eye. If you are looking for metal with the traditional spangle pattern, see our big bright spangled galvanised steel. Benefits:
  • Resistant to rust
  • Versatile
  • Tough coating
  • Great for outdoor projects
Random fact: The process of galvanisation is named after Luigi Galvani, the Italian chemist who discovered electromagnetism in 1781 during an experiment on frogs’ legs.

What our customers say about us

What is mild steel sheet metal?

The term “mild steel” is used to describe low-carbon steel. While mild steel is still strong and tough, it can be further strengthened by the process of carburising – a heat treatment using a source of carbon. The steel is malleable, weldable and ductile, as well as being cost-effective and relatively easy to form. No wonder it's a popular choice in the construction industry.

Where is mild steel used?

Mild steel has many applications that include construction (especially to  meet seismic or wind requirements), machine parts and pipelines. As mild steel is difficult to break and easy to form, it is also used in sculptures and outdoor designs (e.g. fences). To prevent corrosion, it is usually galvanised or painted. You probably use or see mild steel products every day in wires, nails, decorations, and many furniture elements. Even road signs are made of low carbon steel! Because of its high amount of iron and ferrite, this type of steel can be magnetic which makes it the perfect choice to create a magnetic board with.

Our price promise

Buy Metal Online is a reliable stockholder of mild steel sheets at incredibly competitive prices. We are so confident in our mild steel sheet prices that we guarantee you will not find it cheaper! Should you find a mild steel price online in the UK lower on price per unit, we will beat it by 5%. Just let us know which competitor is offering the lower price, and we'll handle the rest.

Corten steel sheet (also known as weathering steel) is instantly identifiable thanks to its rich, bright orange tones. Originally developed for building coal carriages in 1930s America, it is now one of the most stylish and durable metals on the market. Corten steel plate might look like it’s rusty, but thanks to clever manipulation in its processing, the outer oxidisation actually protects the steel from further corrosion, as well as giving it its striking good looks. The grey metal pictured shows our natural/raw Corten sheet when first purchased, whilst the orange-coloured metal shows how it typically looks like after the weathering process, which takes between 3-10 months of exposure to the elements. If you want your Corten ready-weathered, check out our pre-weathered Corten steel. When rust looks good Corten steel sheet (also known as weathering steel) is instantly identifiable thanks to its rich, bright orange tones. Originally developed for building coal carriages in 1930s America, it is now one of the most stylish and durable metals on the market. Corten steel plate might look like it’s rusty, but thanks to clever manipulation in its processing, the outer oxidisation actually protects the steel from further corrosion, as well as making it look very good indeed. There’s no need to paint this one and it just looks better with age, no wonder designers love it. For years, Corten has been the metal of choice for containers and other shipping elements. More recently, though, it’s become the material of choice for many artists, architects and interior designers. We’re proud to supply talented artists and sculptors with Corten for their gorgeous projects, including UK-based Eddie Roberts, who works the metal into stunning creations. As well as art, Corten steel cladding is extremely popular and it is often used for buildings, giving it a tough coating against the elements and an industrial-looking edge. Recently, our weathering steel was used both inside and out for the makeover of The Western, a stylish Brighton bar. We supply our weathering steel panels in a huge variety of thicknesses and sizes and our free cutting service means we can trim it down to the precise size you need, with no minimum order. Just email us for your Corten Steel prices. Whether you’re looking for stunning aesthetics, weather performance or a wonderful mix of both, it delivers. How it’s made: Weathering steel is an alloy, which is what makes it so resistant to the elements. The addition of nickel, copper and chromium at the production stage means that over time, a protective patina will develop on the surface of the metal. Good for: Cladding, containers, marine transportation, bridges, general architecture, interiors, art installations, water features, sculptures, planters and many more. Benefits:
  • Hard-wearing
  • Low maintenance
  • Weatherproof
  • Striking looks

We wanted to fabricate Corten steel doors and this company shipped metal really quickly to Northern Scotland, a part of the world which many companies refuse to deliver to. The fact that they will send large sheets of steel here is greatly appreciated. The Corten steel panels cost was also very reasonable. I will definitely not hesitate or shop around next time, I will Buymetalonline.” – Peter Thompson, Trustpilot, December 2015.

Thinking of installing a notice board at home or in the office?  Then our galvanised magnetic notice boards are perfect for you. Our customers use these for displaying photographs, children’s artwork, staff notices and important documents.   The sheets are 1.0 mm thick. This product isn’t magnetic itself, so it won’t pick up metal objects, however it is the ideal thickness for both children’s magnets, industrial magnets and anything in between.  Whether you’re looking to keep your bills in order, display your precious photographs or give your living room an industrial edge, the opportunities for magnetic boards are endless. If you can’t see the size you’re looking for in the box above, just let us know; we’re always happy to cut to cut metal to size – and there’s no minimum order, so your magnetic notice board can be delivered just the size you want. How it’s made: Galvanised steel is made when steel is fortified with a powerful layer of zinc. The metal is dipped in an extremely hot bath of molten zinc, which causes a chemical reaction, resulting in a protective layer of zinc which makes the finished product supremely tough. Whilst the zinc that’s added to steel in the galvanisation process is not magnetic, the steel itself is. The amount of zinc used is so little that it doesn’t affect the performance of the steel, meaning magnets will stick to it. Good for: Notice boards, photography displays, shop displays, interiors or anywhere else where a surface that attracts magnets is required. Painting: Galvanised steel can be coated in paint, but make sure you use a specialist product and primer. Benefits:
  • Attracts magnets
  • Huge range of sizes available
  • Free cutting service
  • Sturdy and long-lasting
Please note: We do not offer pre-drilled holes in the corners of the metal What our customers say about us: “Even though the original order arrived damaged the service was fantastic.

I e-mailed a question about the metal galvanisation and I was called back almost instantly with an answer. I was very impressed by the service I received and would fully recommend them.” – Stuart, Trustpilot, December 2015. Random fact: The largest collection of fridge magnets in the world belongs to Louise Greenfarb of Henderson, Las Vegas, United States. She is also known, imaginatively, as ‘Magnet Lady’. Her collection began in the seventies and gradually spread; as well as the hundreds of magnets adorning the front of her fridge, there are novelties and souvenirs on other appliances, doors and all over her home – a grand total of 45,000 magnets.

What is Aluminium Sheet? The Lightweight One Ultra-ductile, rust resistant and super-light, our sheet aluminium is suitable for a multitude of uses. This nonmagnetic, widely recycled metal is perhaps most well-known for its role in drinks cans and other packaging. Thanks to its lightweight properties, though, it also aces aircraft engineering, luggage components, bicycles and auto parts. What’s more, aluminium is incredibly resistant to corrosion, making it a clever choice for windows, roofing and other construction jobs. Aluminium is easily identifiable by its bright, silvery sheen. Just like the other metals we sell, we can provide your sheet aluminium in exactly the size you need, meaning no excess product will go to waste. There’s no minimum order, too, so you can order as much or as little aluminium as you need. Good for: Packaging, drinks cans, foil sheets, cookware, home appliances, signage, storage tanks, trailers, welding, car panels, spacecraft, aerospace engineering, furniture, gutters, awnings, roofing, siding, luggage, bicycle components, ships, military vehicles, armour. How it's made: Get ready for a quick science lesson: the process of making aluminium sheet begins with bauxite, a soil-like substance that’s mined from underground. Clay is washed off the bauxite, which then goes through a grinding machine, before being plunged into a hot bath of caustic soda and lime. The caustic soda and lime refine the bauxite, extracting aluminium oxide. The aluminium oxide is filtered and heated, and by now takes the form of white powder. Next, electricity and carbon are combined with the aluminium oxide to create aluminium; an electrical current is passed between a negative carbon cathode and a positive carbon anode. The anode and the oxygen in the aluminium oxide react, producing carbon dioxide. This process creates liquid aluminium, which is moulded into ingots ready to be rolled out into aluminium sheets at the factory. Benefits:
  • Low density
  • Versatile
  • Corrosion-resistant
  • Recyclable
What our customers say about us: “Competitively priced. Helpful on the phone before online ordering. Cut to size for us. Promptly delivered. Can't ask for more!” – Mr N Smith, Trustpilot, September 2016. Random fact: The largest sculpture made of aluminium drinks cans was built in Abu Dhabi, UAE in 2012. Comprising 46,566 aluminium cans, the structure was a scale model of the city’s landmark, 200-year-old Al Maqta Fort. It was built on Al Taweelah beach by a team of 30 people, and it took six full days to create.

Corten Steel weathering – how it works:
  1. Please Note: Corten products can arrive at any stage of weathering. We cannot guarantee what level they will be or even if multiple items ordered at the same time will all be at the same level. Unweathered areas of your planter will be the colour of freshly manufactured steel, with a dark oily coating.
  2. As your Corten Steel planter begins to weather, the oily residue will break down.

Aged brass sheets can serve as a complete wall covering, feature wall, conversation piece, characterful backsplash or architectural element anywhere in your home. Manufactured from high quality metal, finished by hand to a lustrous patina and then lacquered to seal in the effect. Every sheet is different, with a slightly different sheen, character and appeal. Few other materials combine the heritage of brass that reminds us of bygone days with the contemporary appeal of texture and colour. That’s why aged brass sheets of this quality are so popular! These decorative metal sheets can be used in the home, work place, studio or anywhere you like. They can be used as wall coverings, architectural flourishes or something else entirely, it’s completely up to you. See them as kitchen worktops, balustrades, feature walls, wall panels, bar and counter tops, anywhere the rich characterful sheen of brass would look its best. Aged brass sheets from Buy Metal Online are available in a selection of thicknesses and sizes. We can also cut your aged brass sheet to custom dimensions. Just let us know and we’ll take care of the rest!

Installing your aged brass sheets

Brass is a soft alloy so needs to be handled with care. Try not to drop or bash the sheet when moving it around otherwise it may become damaged. Aged brass sheets can be installed using screw fixings or adhesive depending on the situation. Where possible, try not to drill holes into the sheet as you may damage the lacquer and leave metal exposed. If you need any help with installation or sizing, contact the team here at Buy Metals Online. We would be only too happy to help!

Aged brass

Brass is an alloy made up of copper and zinc. The proportions of which give brass the lustrous finish and wide variety of depths and colours. We take standard brass sheets and accelerate the ageing process to provide its key character. Then we finish with a gloss lacquer to deliver the shine and to stop the ageing process. The gloss lacquer should last many years, but can be worn through using harsh chemicals, repeated washing, excessive heat and poor treatment. Sheets can be protected through careful use and the lacquer reapplied if necessary.

Caring for your aged brass sheets

Aged brass sheets should require minimal maintenance depending on where they are installed. If a sheet requires cleaning, use warm soapy water and a microfibre cloth. Do not use a scouring sponge or chemical cleaning products as this will accelerate the wear of the lacquer. Wipe any spills immediately and wash down with warm soapy water. Avoid contact with other metals to prevent a reaction. Get in touch with Josh, on 07703 567916 or josh@specialtyservices.co.uk, for a no-obligations custom quote. All sheets can be cut to size before dispatch.
