6061-T6511 extruded is the most versatile of the heat treatable aluminum alloys. It has most of the good qualities of aluminum, and it offers a wide range of mechanical properties and corrosion resistance. It can be fabricated by many of the commonly used techniques. Length tolerances are ±1".
CA360 Rods: This cold finished, nonferrous alloy 360 is a versatile, free cutting, 1/2 hard brass and is the standard of machinability (rated 100%) against which all nonferrous alloys are rated. It's an ideal metal for shop use where milling, drilling, tapping, knurling or turning is required. Brass is a corrosion resistant, rustproof metal that finishes well and is easily plated, soldered and brazed. Typical applications include nuts, bolts, rivets, valve stems, pump shafts and marine hardware. Conforms to ASTM B16. Length tolerances are +/-1/2 in.SAE 841 Rods: These oil-filled, powdered metal, bronze bars are produced to ASTM standards for consistent precision, quality and uniformity. Bars are vacuum impregnated with non-detergent SAE 30 oil to provide excellent lubrication while being corrosion resistant. The O.D. is oversized and the I.D. is undersized to allow for finishing to listed dimensions. Application temperature range is 10 to 220 degrees Fahrenheit.
Bronze is an alloy that consists primarily of copper with the addition of other ingredients. In most cases the ingredient added is typically tin, but arsenic, phosphorus, aluminum, manganese, and silicon is also be used to produce different properties in the material. All of these ingredients produce an alloy much harder than copper alone. Bronze is characterized by its dull-gold color, and has faint rings on its surface (which helps one to differentiate it from brass). Bronze bars are used in the construction of sculptures, musical instruments and medals, and in industrial applications such as bushings and bearings, where its low metal on metal friction is an advantage. Bronze also has nautical applications because of its resistance to corrosion. Other applications include bearings and bushings, pump impellers, valve components, wire brushes, chemical hardware, gears, and pipe fittings.
All rods come in 36" lengths and are AISI/SAE. Available in the following types: O-1: Oil-hardening for general tool room use. Good nondeforming characteristics. Moderate resistance to abrasion. Machinability 90%. S-7: Air-hardening molybdenum, chromium, shock resisting. High impact strength with moderate wear resistance. Machinability 95%. A-2: Air-hardening. Maximum abrasion resistance. Machinability 65%.W-1: Water hardening offers a combination of high abrasion resistance and toughness when hardened. Machinability 100%.D-2: Air hardening. Offers significantly better wear resistance and a high compressive strength. Machinability 65%.
Stainless Steel Rods
Type 303 is highly corrosion resistant and non-magnetic. It has non-galling and non-seizing qualities which allow for easy machining and is better for lighter equipment if welding is not required. When cold worked, can become slightly magnetic. Free machining for heavier cuts in automatic machining operations. Corrosion resistant to atmospheric exposures, sterilizing solutions, most organic and many inorganic chemicals, most dyes, nitric acid and foods. Machinability is 70% (1212 crs = 100% and 1018 crs = 78%). Length tolerances are +/-1 in.Type 316 is the best corrosion resistance of the standard stainless steels. Resists pitting and most chemicals used in paper, textile and photographic industries. High temperature strength. Non magnetic. Length tolerances are +/-1 in.
Made from K-prene® urethane. Rods and bars are available in 80A, 90A, and 95A durometer. All are 48" long. 80A is orange, 90A is blue and 95A is red. Length tolerance is ± 1/8". Diameter or width is ±2%.
