LEADED GUNMETAL LG2
(BS 1400 1985 LG2)
Leaded Bronzes and Gunmetals (also known as Red Brass) offer better machining characteristics than other Bronzes while maintaining a good balance of corrosion resistance and strength. Leaded Gunmetal LG2 is a general purpose leaded gunmetal conforming to the requirements BS1400 – 1985 alloy LG2. The substantial lead content gives it excellent machining qualities, it has medium strength, good pressure tightness and it is not subject to dezincification. LG2 has excellent resistance to superheated steam applications and has reasonable corrosion resistance to seawater and brine, making it suitable for pressure-tight pump and valve components, pump impellers, fittings and general engineering applications.
