NovaCast routinely uses a wide range of metal surface treatments on its cast products to enhance their mechanical, electrical or aesthetic properties. Surface treatments and finishes are often applied following surface preparation, usually in the form of fettling, linishing or shot blasting, and any final machining. Here, we focus on the surface treatments most commonly … Read more
ALUMINIUM BRONZE AB1
Aluminium Bronze AB1 is an Aluminium Bronze conforming to the requirements of BS 1400. It has good strength and wear resistance with reasonable machining properties. AB1 resists tarnishing and high temperature oxidation. These physical properties remain good at elevated temperatures. General corrosion resistance is good but under some circumstances may suffer dealuminification. Aluminium Bronze is often chosen for pump applications where impeller peripheral velocity is high (up to 45m/sec).
