ALUMINIUM BRONZE AB2
Aluminium Bronze AB2 is a Nickel Aluminium bronze conforming to the requirements of B.S. 1400 – 1985 alloy AB2. Suitable for Marine 'on deck' castings, water-cooled manifolds and jackets, car and road transport fittings; thin section and intricate castings such as housing, meter cases and switch boxes; for very large castings, e.g cast doors and panels where ease of casting is essential; for chemical and dye industry castings, e.g pump parts; for paint industry and food and domestic castings. AB2 has high strength, good wearing and erosion resistance. Corrosion resistance can be further enhanced by annealing of the components.
Chemical Composition – CuAl10Fe5Ni5
