Nuclear Industry

Operating Markets

The nuclear power sector requires specialist engineering material support and specific approvals.

As a metals supplier to the nuclear industry, Smiths Advanced Metals stocks products designed to work to the absolute limit.

The United Kingdom is currently home to eight nuclear power sites. Right now, these eight sites supply almost 21% of the UK's electrical energy. Future expansion plans dictate that new power plant builds require the highest performance alloys. When sourcing nuclear engineering materials, customers must partner with the best stockholders to comply with the most stringent safety and performance standards.

Whatever path the UK takes in future nuclear construction, choosing suitable materials for the job will be critical. If the wrong metal is selected, it may jeopardise the build's safety or necessitate replacement due to the harsh operational environment.


We understand that the nuclear sector requires specialist metals and processing support to the highest standards. Smiths Advanced Metals offers various stainless steel grades and copper alloys for all aspects of atomic production and maintenance. Our expertise in this area means we are well placed to advise on the best materials for use in the nuclear sector based on your specific needs.

Unique Benefits

A unique benefit of dealing with Smiths Advanced Metals is its UKAS accredited testing house complimented by a team of experienced metallurgists. Many customers have found our facility helpful, especially with certain copper alloys no longer manufactured to nuclear standards.

Customers welcome the fact that we can take our stock, for example, copper bar, and test a production batch both chemically and mechanically before certifying on our own UKAS certificate - all controlled under one roof.
