Sand Casting has been a key process in manufacturing for thousands of years and still accounts for approximately 70% of all castings. Whether Sand Casting is the best option for the production of a particular component will be dictated by considerations such as the required geometry, performance, alloy choice, production run, tolerance within specification and … Read more
PHOSPHOR BRONZE PB1
(BS 1400 1985 PB1)
Phosphor Bronzes have Phosphor added to the alloy to improve strength and hardness. Phosphor Bronze PB1 is a copper based alloy containing 10-12% tin. This alloy combines high mechanical strength with good ductility, corrosion resistance and wear resistance. It also offers a good resistance to shock loading. PB1 can be soldered and brazed and is traditionally used in heavy load applications run at high speeds. It is suitable pump and valve components, flanges, etc.
