SAE 660 Bronze or C93200 as it also commonly known is a high leaded tin/ bearing Bronze.
SAE 660 is one of the most widely used alloys on the Bronze range, mainly due to its versatility as a medium range Bronze that make it suitable for many applications.
Stainless Steel is a standard term given to a group of corrosion resistant alloy Steels containing 10.5% or more chromium. All Stainless Steels have high levels of corrosion resistance. This resistance to corrosion is due to a naturally occurring chromium rich oxide layer formed on the surface of the Steel. Although incredibly thin, this invisible, inert layer is tightly adherent to the Stainless Steel and extremely protective in a wide range of corrosive environments.
1050A Aluminium alloy is one of the most popular grades of Aluminium used today. 1050A alloy has excellent corrosion resistance, high ductility, a moderate strength and a highly reflective finish.
This grade of alloy is most suitable of use as food industrial containers, architectural flashings, cable sheathings, lamp reflectors and chemical process plant equipment.
EN 1.4305 grade 303 Stainless Steel provides the best machinability among all the austenitic Stainless Steels.
303 gains its improved machining and galling characteristics by the addition on sulphur, however this addition also lowers the stainless steels corrosive resistance and reduces its toughness slightly when comparing it to 304 Stainless Steel.
EN 1.4301 grade 304 Stainless Steel 18/8 (18% chromium 8% nickel) is the most widely used of all Stainless Steel types. Due to its composition, corrosion and heat resistance and its mechanical properties, grade 304 is used in all fields of industrial, commercial and domestic manufacturing.
Grade 6082 Aluminium alloy is a medium strength alloy that possesses excellent corrosion resistance.
Grade 6082 is commonly known as a structural alloy and provides the highest strength of all the alloys in the 6000 series. This increase in strength is due the addition of a large quantity of manganese that controls the grain structure and creates a stronger alloy.
