DESCRIPTION DATA SHEET SILICON BRONZE MSC 9631
Our experience in the metallurgic industry of copper alloys has led us to develop an innovative alloy for the artistic, architectural and ornamental fields.
The alloy we named SILICON BRONZE MSC 9631 has the following features:
– total absence of Zinc
-Good resistance to oxidation and weathering
-Excellent castability due to the presence of silicon
-Total elimination of noxious fumes during casting due to the fact that the alloy contains neither Lead,Nickel and Zinc, in favor of the protection of the environment
-The alloy has a similar color to binary bronze alloy,but with nuances shaded off
-Melting point of 1140 ° -1150 ° ( NB If the temperature is too high there is the risk , during the solidification phase , that the metal overlaps on sprues. if it occurs,leave the metal resting in the oven for a few minutes,and pay attention thet the temperature do not fall down too much)
-Excellent for polishing , obtaining surface mirror – satin – matt – raw -etc
-Excellent for welding TIG with filler materials of the same alloy
– Discrete for welding TIG without filler material of the same alloy,(micro-cracks may occur if the two parts to be welded are not in full contact)
-Volumetric mass 8,30 kg/dm3
-The material is supplied in ingots weight of circa13/14Kg , or sub-formats on request(small quantity)
-Are recommended for melting crucible or electric induction furnace with low remixing.
