Heres what im trying to find out:
- Plastic VS Aluminium VS Carbon Fibre VS Graphite Fibre VS Fibre glass= how do they rank in order of the heaviest to the lightest and in terms or rigidity? ie. any pros and cons of using the material.
- what on earth is SSG Grahpite? Satin Grey? then whats the other S for?
- Titanuim Vs Steel = Ti is lighter, but is it softer than steel?
- Aluminium is lighter and cheaper than Titanium but softer, therefore are they suitable for use as screws?
There is a lot of sources you can get on the internet and one of them if you go to www.mcmaster.com-every
block of materials begins with short material description (example page 3428). It might help you with basic guydline.
