LG2 (CC491K)

Leaded Bronze Alloy

LG2 Leaded Bronze

LG2 (CC491K) combines outstanding machining capabilities with moderate strength.

Attractive Performance

Known as a leaded gunmetal bronze, LG2 (CC491K) promotes a variety of attractive performance characteristics. The alloy has outstanding machining properties while offering superior corrosion and wear resistance. With medium strength and resistance to dezincification, LG2 offers reasonable protection from the effects of corrosion in salt water and brine environments. The alloy is ideally suited to the production of bearings which function under light loads and up to medium speeds. Increased lead content gives the material enhanced machining characteristics when compared to other bronze alloys.

Commercial applications for this engineering material include:

  • Superheated steam applications
  • Pressure tight pumps and valves
  • General bearings
  • Architectural trims
  • Pump impellers

We stock LG2 (CC491K) in flats, round bar, plate, sheet, round tube, rectangular tube, hollow bar, square bar, hexagon bar and hollow hexagon bar.
