The ability to accurately reverse engineer existing castings is essential to any modern foundry. Reverse engineering could be required for a variety of reasons ranging from replication of an old casting where original patterns have been lost to improving mechanical performance or learning from an existing design to replicate or improve it. Whatever the reason, … Read more
Aluminium bronze 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
