BS1400 PB1 Bronze Alloy
PB1 is a continuously cast 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 but is out performed in this area by the wrought grades. PB1 can be soldered and brazed and is traditionally used in heavy load applications run at high speeds.
BS1400 PB1 offers high wear resistance and good resistance to impact loading. With high wear resistance and excellent corrosion resistance in marine atmospheres, the alloy is used extensively in the marine industry. BS1400 PB1 offers good resistance to brine and high mechanical strength.
