BS EN 1982 CC333G (formerly BS1400 AB2) is the most commonly used type of cast Aluminium Bronze. The Aluminium, Nickel and Iron contents enhance the strength, toughness and corrosion resistance of the material. It goes under the designation C95800 in the USA.
Known for its excellent resistance to cavitation, erosion and corrosion in seawater and many other harmful environments. It can be heat treated to further increase its corrosion resistant properties making it particularly useful for seawater service.
CC333G/AB2 also possesses a high wear and abrasion resistance, an ability to withstand shock loading and the retention of properties at cryogenic temperatures.
Common uses include Valve Bodies for marine applications, Pump Impellers, Gear Wheels and Structural Components.
