LB2 (1400)

Leaded Bronze Alloy

LB2 Leaded Bronze

LB2 is a product which is particularly suitable for the manufacture of bearings.

Continuous Cast Bronze

With good corrosion resistance and excellent wear resistance in high-speed environments, LB2 is a continuous cast bronze product. The alloy is a suitable product for use in the manufacture of bearings, especially where there is a lack of adequate lubrication or there are alignment issues. The excellent wear resistance characteristics of the alloy are particular impressive under conditions of heavy pressure, vibration or high speed. The high lead content and inclusion of tin in this bronze products results in an alloy with increased plasticity.

Typical Applications

Commercial applications for this engineering material include:

  • High load bearings
  • Bearing plates
  • Gear wheels
  • Centrifugal castings
  • Impellers

We stock LB2 in round bar, plate and hollow bar.
