At NovaCast, a large proportion of our castings are produced using Aluminium alloy. The formation of Aluminium Oxide and the presence of non-metallic inclusions, collectively known as dross, is an inherent part of the casting process and one that must be managed to achieve the highest quality castings. For many years, part of the foundryman’s … 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.
