Manganese Bronze Alloys

Bronze alloys exhibit very good toughness, strength, corrosion resistance, electrical conductivity, and thermal conductivity.
As one of the oldest alloyed materials a range of applications exist to take advantage of the various positive characteristics such as high load bearings, bushings and hydraulic cylinder parts. Continue reading

Thermal Expansion of Stainless Steels: Part One

The coefficient of thermal expansion effectively measures the rate of the material expansion as a function of temperature.
This is a critical measure of the material where the application infers heating and remaining at a fixed dimension for any period of time. Continue reading
