The production of high-quality castings has always been a mix of sound design, technical knowledge and the foundryman’s experience in handling and managing each stage in the casting process. More recent innovations, such as casting simulation software and 3D modelling, have helped to reduce casting defects by improving both product and gating system design. Dealing … Read more
HIGH TENSILE BRASS HTB1
(BS 1400 1985 HTB1)
High Tensile Brass HTB1 castings exhibit high strength and cost less than comparable high strength alloys. HTB1 has good resistance to both corrosion and oxidation. HTB1 castings are often heat treated to restore the alloy structure to its optimum condition and to further increase its resistance to corrosion as a result.
HTB1 and other high tensile brass castings are used extensively for wear-resisting applications because of their strength. It is also used for marine propellers, pump impellers and valve bodies due to its high corrosion resistance.
Chemical Composition – CuZn35AlFeMn
