Keywords: Advanced Metals, Alloys

Advanced Metals International, a leading multi-metal stockholder/supplier and processor of aluminium, titanium, copper and nickel alloys and steels/stainless steels has increased its range of copper alloys with the introduction of ULTIBRON-CNS.

The high strength (approaching that of steel) of ULTIBRON-CNS is augmented by high electrical (typically 40 per cent IACS) and thermal conductivity, excellent corrosion resistance, good bearing properties and retention of properties at elevated and sub-zero temperatures. A property combination which is hard to beat and not provided by any other alloy type.

The set of alloy characteristics make ULTIBRON-CNS the ultimate specification choice for a host of different high performance components and can provide great benefit to users in diverse industries such as high performance IC engine building, mechanical engineering, aerospace engineering, defence, electrical/electronic engineering, aluminium pressure diecasting, plastics injection and resistance welding.

ULTIBRON-NB has also been added to the range of high performance alloys supplied by Advanced Metals International, the leading multi-metal stockholder and metal processor.

ULTIBRON-NB was developed to provide an exceptional combination of properties in one alloy. Very high strength (up to B7 steel strength - over 700Mpa proof strength) is available to the designer combined with outstanding corrosion resistance, complete freedom from hydrogen embrittlement, high wear and galling resistance, full retention of properties at cryogenic temperatures and very low magnetic permeability.

This extra high strength cupronickel/nickel bronze provides the ultimate material choice for many applications in offshore oil and gas, defence, aircraft engineering, plastics moulding, electrical engineering and extreme performance mechanical engineering where utmost reliability is of paramount importance.

Data for ULTIBRON-CNS and ULTIBRON-NB are available upon request.
