Face plate for contact transducer

Hello, all. My name is Li Zhang, a student of Univ. of Massachusetts.

I am in a project of making contact ultrasonic transducer. The transcucer will be used in contact with aluminum or steel. I don't know what kind of wear plate (face plate) is available. I have checked alumina, the price is incredibly high. Anybody knows alternatives? It will be great if you can also give me some websites or company names. I appreciate for your help.

Li
