Australian Metals supplies a range of specialized alloys, each with distinct properties and applications:
- Nickel Aluminium Bronze: This alloy is known for its high strength and corrosion resistance, especially in marine environments. It is commonly used in applications where durability and wear resistance are critical.
- Bronze C83600 (LG2): This leaded gunmetal bronze is renowned for its excellent machining properties, good corrosion resistance, and reasonable strength. It’s often used in general engineering and plumbing applications.
- Aluminium Bronze C95400: This high-strength alloy is characterized by its exceptional wear and corrosion resistance. It’s typically used in high load applications and is resistant to seawater corrosion.
- Aluminium Bronze (AB2) C95810: Similar to C95400, this alloy offers excellent corrosion resistance, especially in seawater, and high strength. It’s often used in marine applications and for parts requiring high resistance to wear and fatigue.
- Phosphor Bronze (PB1): Known for its fine grain and excellent mechanical properties, this alloy is used in electrical components, springs, and various precision-engineered parts. It offers good corrosion resistance and fatigue strength.
- Beryllium Copper (CuBe): This unique alloy combines high strength with non-magnetic and non-sparking qualities. It’s used in hazardous environments where sparks can be a fire hazard, and in applications requiring high strength and conductivity.
