Materials

Renown Engineering is highly experienced in manufacturing using a wide range of materials. Due to the multiple industries in which we operate, this flexibility is demanded from our clients.

Our materials range includes:

  • Armoured Steel
  • High Strength Steel
  • Ferrous Metals
  • Non-Ferrous Metals
  • Exotic Steels
  • Acoustically Enhanced Steel
The UK now has its own onshore supply of high-performance armour steel, thanks to a UK invention and a new manufacturing agreement.



Known as super bainite, the new armour steel has been developed to have outstanding ballistics properties and, in tests, it has performed better than ‘normal’ steel armour.



The Ministry of Defence has signed a licensing agreement with Tata Steel to manufacture the steel in the UK.



Showcased at Defence and Security Equipment International (DSEi) today, the material was invented and developed in the UK, with production ear-marked to take place in Port Talbot, South Wales. Under the agreement the steel will be turned into seven different items, including perforated armour plates that could be used on future frontline armoured vehicles.

Armoured and High Strength Steel

Renown Engineering has significant experience in fabricating and machining armour grades. This includes:

  • Def-Stan 95-24
  • Armox
  • Secure materials

Our capabilities also include the fabrication and machining of RQT grades and fabrication of steel structures up to 10 tonnes in ferrous and non-ferrous metals.

Exotic Steel

Over 25 years, Renown Engineering has developed substantial experience in fabricating and machining exotic steels such as:

  • Maraging steel
  • High grade stainless steel
  • Super Duplex

Our expertise enables us to manufacture exotic steel components and meet our customers’ most challenging requirements.

Non-Ferrous

Renown Engineering provides fabrication and machining of non-ferrous material which include all ranges of aluminium including armour aluminium.

Our dedicated fabrication and welding area ensures no cross contamination between ferrous and non-ferrous metals.

SDS: Acoustically Enhanced Steel

Renown Engineering has exclusive access to use Sound Dead Steel, an enhanced laminate steel product which provides noise and vibration reduction.

Sound Dead Steel can be incorporated into customer products to acoustically enhance the product and prevent noise and vibration transmission.

Renown Engineering has successfully incorporated Sound Dead Steel into the design and manufacture of acoustic enclosures and other structures to reduce noise and vibration.

Turnkey packages can be provided which includes design, manufacture, installation, commissioning, servicing, full control systems and bespoke pallets & tooling.
