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 PB2
(BS 1400 1985 PB2)
Phosphor Bronze PB2 is a Phosphor Bronze with a higher Tin content than PB1, which means it has excellent resistance to wear. As a result of these properties, PB2 is an ideal material for the manufacture of components such as gears and heavy sliding or reciprocating loads.
PB2 has good machining properties, high strength and good corrosion resistance to seawater and brine, making it suitable for pump and valve components. PB2 is suitable for bearings having medium to high loads and speeds, and has good resistance to impact loading or pounding.
