      Just over 500 different materials and 32 different forms (rod, wire, tube, foil, etc.).

    • Goodfellow Specific Questions
      What does Goodfellow do?
      Goodfellow supplies small to medium quantities of metals, alloys, ceramics and polymers for research, development, prototyping and specialised manufacturing operations.
      What discounts does Goodfellow offer?
      Our standard catalogue pricing structures take account of increasing quantities. Therefore, the unit price decreases as the quantity ordered increases. However, if you require a quantity in excess of the maximum amount listed, please contact Goodfellow as we may be able to offer a more competitive price. It may also be worthwhile looking at the "Special Offers" section of the site, as there are always a number of items which are available at a discounted price.
      What extra shipping costs am I likely to be charged?
      The prices quoted by Goodfellow in the catalogue are inclusive of shipping by courier (FedEx, UPS or DHL) and, therefore, there are no extra charges for shipping. The exception to this is for those items which are listed on the website as "Special Offers". The quoted prices for these products are "ex-works" and, therefore, shipping costs will be charged.
