I need help selecting a material

  1. Sep 3, 2009 #1
    It will be rotating fast, so preferably a low density and high tensile strength. It also needs to be nonconductive, and it will be exposed to some heat generated from electrical coils. Thanks!

    You make no mention of the purpose the part serves, the loads imparted on it or any other constraints, especially how fast is "spinning fast?" How can anyone provide an answer?
