The following list states the pros and cons of each type we use.

Materials

Pros

Cons

Acid-Ected Aluminum

-Does not leave a black residue like normal Aluminum
-Weighs 1/3 as much as steel
-Almost white in color

-After about 6 months to 1 year of normal wear the acid-etched aluminum will turn back into Aluminum and share it's cons, you can avoid this by getting it re-acid-etched
Aluminum -Weighs 1/3 as much as steel
-Stronger then the other types of Aluminum
-Leaves a black residue on anything that touches it
Anodized Aluminum (Colored)

-Weighs 1/3 as much as steel
-Does not leave a black residue like normal Aluminum
-Red, Yellow, Purple, Blue, Green, Black

-Colors may chip or rub off from wear and tear. But the main color of it will last for a very long time
Brass -Nice color and almost as strong as steel
-Used normally in jewelry and trim for armor
-May tarnish if not looked after
-About as heavy as steel
Bright Aluminum -Does not leave a black residue like normal Aluminum
-Weighs 1/3 as much as steel
-Looks almost Silver in appearance
-Will eventually wear off and turn back into Aluminum - however this will take a very long time to happen
Bronze -More copper in color then Brass and still pretty strong
-Used normally in jewelry and trim for armor
-May tarnish if not looked after
-About as heavy as steel
Copper -Used normally in jewelry and trim for armor
-Claimed to have some healing powers
-Soft - but still harder then normal copper used in wire
-About as heavy as steel
-Will tarnish if not looked after and may leave a green residue on skin
Galvanized Steel -Strong, cheap and most common choice for armor
-Does not rust
-Will oxidize (turn a darker, dull grey)
Stainless Steel

-Strong, never tarnishes or rusts
-Comes in Steel and Black colors
-Black steel is not Mild Steel which rusts, it is steel with a layer of black colored steel
-Non-allergetic

-About twice as expensive as Galvanized steel and Aluminum
-Black Steel shouldn't rub or chip off as it's part of the steel but gashes can cut through the black layer
Nickel Silver -Strong, will not tarnish or rust
-Color is similiar to Sterling Silver (perhaps a little more yellow)
-A bit more expensive then Stainless steel
-Some people are known to be allergic to Nickel
Neoprene -Black molded rubber
-Solid rings (not open)
-Strong, stretchy
-As expensive as Sterling silver
-Since they are solid, they must be woven with other rings.
Stainless Steel Washers

-Punched from steel sheets
-Solid rings (not open)
-Strong
-Don't rust or tarnish

-Since they are solid, they can't be used alone, unless every second row is cut open.
Titanium -Weighs about 66% less then steel
-Strong, rust/tarnish proof
-Non-allergetic
-What can I say it's Titanium!
-Very expensive
Sterling Silver -Non-allergetic
-Won't rust
-Very very expensive
-May tarnish ofter time. Regular use should reduse chance of tarnish
