932 Bronze Round Rod, Unpolished (Mill) Finish, As Cast Temper, ASTM B505/SAE 660, 1.25" Diameter, 13" Length
The 932 bronze round rod is cast and unpolished, meets American Society for Testing and Materials International ASTM B505 and Society of Automotive Engineers SAE 660 specifications, and has a standard tolerance. The 932 bronze alloy, also known as bearing bronze and SAE 660, is corrosion resistant and has high strength and machinability due to its lead content. The material has been liquefied and poured into a mold, then cooled to create the shape.
Copper, brass, and bronze are known as red metals because they contain copper, which has a reddish color. Copper, a term that applies to alloys containing at least 99.3% copper, offers very high thermal and electrical conductivity and provides corrosion resistance, formability, and machinability. Brass is an alloy of copper and varying levels of zinc, sometimes with additional elements. It provides greater strength and better machinability than copper or bronze. Bronze is commonly an alloy of copper and tin, but sometimes it is copper alloyed with other elements such as aluminum, phosphorus, manganese, or silicon. Tin gives bronze more corrosion resistance than brass and greater strength than copper. Copper and its alloys have temper designations, meaning the material has undergone a process to achieve certain properties of strength and hardness.
Tensile strength, used to indicate the material's overall strength, is the peak stress it can withstand before it breaks. Corrosion resistance describes the material's ability to prevent deterioration caused by atmosphere, moisture, or other medium. Wear resistance indicates the ability to prevent surface damage caused by contact with other surfaces. Hardness (commonly measured as indentation hardness) describes its resistance to permanent surface deformation. Formability indicates how easily the material can be permanently shaped. Machinability describes how easily it can be cut, shaped, finished, or otherwise machined, while weldability characterizes the ability to be welded.
