In the early 1900’s, British car manufacturers were at the forefront of motor vehicle development. The Vulcan Motor company, based in Southport, England, was one such innovator that produced cars from 1902 until the late 1920s. Today, early examples of Vulcan cars are extremely rare collectors’ items. NovaCast was approached by a specialist engineering company … Read more
Phosphor bronzes have phosphor added to the alloy to improve strength and hardness. Phosphor bronze PB1 (BS 1400 1985 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 for pump and valve components, flanges, etc.
