How do I choose the correct material?

My application is very high temperature, do you have materials for extreme heat?
Yes we have several high temperature bellows material we can use. These range from a few hundred degrees to several thousands of degrees fahrenheit. Keep in mind these are often the most expensive materials so we will want to know the maximum temperature the bellows will have to endure to keep the costs down.
