The design and manufacture of a metal component involves a multitude of decision points and will be influenced by considerations such as structural performance, weight, lead time, cost and aesthetics. It is understandable, therefore, that thoughts about how precisely that component is going to be manufactured are often left until the design is at a fairly … Read more
ALUMINIUM BRONZE AB2
AB2 is a Nickel Aluminium bronze conforming to the requirements of B.S. 1400 – 1985 alloy AB2. Suitable for Marine ‘on deck’ castings, water-cooled manifolds and jackets, car and road transport fittings; thin section and intricate castings such as housing, meter cases and switch boxes; for very large castings, e.g cast doors and panels where ease of casting is essential; for chemical and dye industry castings, e.g pump parts; for paint industry and food and domestic castings. AB2 has high strength, good wearing and erosion resistance. Corrosion resistance can be further enhanced by annealing of the components.
Chemical Composition – CuAl10Fe5Ni5
