The company makes available bronze rods in different diameter sizes and lengths. The copper alloy is non-ferrous metal made with the mix of tin and copper. It inherits the qualities of tin and copper, that are hard, durable and less brittle. The amount of copper and tin in bronze varies in different commercial grades, copper can be between 60-90%, while tin can be between 12-40%. It is due to its easy melting property, bronze is used for making rods and many other products. The end products developed from these rods include, but not limited to bearings, springs, hardware, fasteners, perforated sheets, machinery, wire, gears, pinions, electrical connectors, clutch disks, wire brushes, etc. Apart from commercial uses, these rods are also used in making building hardware, such as door fittings, wall ties and casement windows.
- Lead bronze rods used in hardware, electrical and industrial applications have good soldering capability and brazing property.
- Phosphor bronze rods developed according to ASTM B103 C 51000, SAE J 463 C 51000 and BS 2874 PB 102 standards have excellent machine-ability.
