Welcome to Ed Fagan Inc.

Our specialty is solving the inventory management problems of our customers. When you need a standard stock material quickly, we can have it shipped within 24 hours. If your material requirement is too small to be of interest to the big producers, we'll use our buying power and expertise to source it for you. When you have a technical problem relating to a Controlled Expansion, Electronic, Soft Magnetic, Refractory or other high-tech material application, our in-house experts can help you solve your problems. If you have a special purpose material that you can't find, if we don't stock it, we'll use our Material-Locator service and try to find it for you.

We stock the highest quality materials available in the forms and conditions you require,
including sheet, plate, strip, rod, bar, wire, and foil...
from the highest quality mills such as ThyssenKrupp VDM, Carpenter Technology, and Plansee.

Controlled Expansion Alloys

For applications where metals must form a hermetic seal with glass or ceramic, such as vacuum tubes, lamps, power tubes, microwave tubes, transistors, switches and integrated circuits (Chips); or for applications where a specific expansion must be met over a certain temperature range, such as optoelectronics, optical and laser benches, and other scientific instruments.

Electrical/Electronic Nickel

For applications requiring good mechanical properties, excellent resistance to corrosive environments, or where high thermal and electrical conductivities are desirable, such as electrical and electronics parts, components for electronics packaging, leads, terminals, getter tabs, and lids; and anodes, cathodes, shields in special purpose electron tubes, fuel cells, Ni-Cd batteries and other applications where corrosion resistance is a necessity.

Soft Magnetic Alloys

For applications that require high permeability, low losses, and low residual magnetism; such as EMI shielding, specialty transformer laminations, high quality motor laminations, and electrical generators; as well as pole pieces for electromagnets, relays, solenoids, transducers, magnetic bearings, and components in scientific instruments

Refractory Metals and Alloys

For applications where high melting points, good strength at elevated temperatures, good thermal and electrical conductivity, low coefficient of expansion, and low vapor pressure at elevated temperatures are required, such as furnace components, glass-to-metal seals, electrodes, electrical contacts, semi-conductor equipment, heat exchangers, heating coils, welding electrodes, medical apparatus, lamp components, and filaments.

Hard-to-Find Special Purpose Material

Are you having trouble locating hard-to-find, exotic, or special purpose material? Is your material requirement too small to be of interest to the big producers? Look to Ed Fagan Inc. and our Material-Locator service. We'll use our buying power and expertise to source the materials you need.

EFI has supplied specialty metals, alloys, and hard to locate materials to high technology industries since 1965 (industries such as Aerospace & Aviation, Defense, Electronics, Heat Treating, Magnetic, Medical, Lighting, Optical, Telecommunications, etc.). We have long relationships with manufacturers of all types of specialty materials, and we are experts in sourcing materials. So, if you can't find it, look to EFI to locate it for you.
