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).
